*Call To Worship
One: You call your people to prayer and praise in many ways.
This day, bring us together just as you called the people of Israel
to gather manna in the desert to eat and sustain life.
Many: God of unity, give us this day our daily bread.
Offer us the nutrients we need to remain connected to you.
One: As spiritual beings, we desire to receive food that endures—
faith, hope, and love.
Many: God of grace, give us this day our daily bread.
All life is created and nourished by you!
May we grow into new circles of understanding and being,
reflecting the ways in which we have been touched by your holy manna.
Holy Spirit, come! Give us this day our daily bread.
*Gloria Patri #36
Glory be to the Creator, and to the Christ and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the
beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Amen.

*Prayer of Dedication
ALL: O God, we share these gifts in the spirit of those who shared their loaves and
fishes: we ask that you take these gifts and use them to feed all of creation—to
produce seed and grain, filling humans and animals alike, and to restore wholeness
in the places where malnourishment exists.
