Opening Litany for Narrative Lectionary, 1st John.

Worship Leader: That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—

Congregation: this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us.

Worship Leader: If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 

Congregation: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Worship Leader: Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. 

Congregation: Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.

Worship Leader: For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.

Congregation: Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Worship Leader: This is how we know that we love the children of God: 

Congregation: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
