Call to Worship

 

The wisdom of God calls to us, from the heights, along the paths, and at

the crossroads. Come into God’s presence to worship, sing, and pray.

From our scattered places we come. Let us worship God.

 

 

Here in this place, new light is streaming,

now is the darkness vanished away.

See, in this space, our fears and our dreamings,

brought here to you in the light of this day.

Gather us in the lost & forsaken,

gather us in the blind & the lame.

Call to us now, and we shall awaken,

we shall arise at the sound of our name.

 

We are the young our lives are a mystery,

we are the old who yearn for your face.

We have been sung throughout all of history,

called to be light to the whole human race.

Gather us in the rich and the haughty,

gather us in the proud and the strong.

Give us a heart so meek and so lowly,

give us the courage to enter the song.

 

Here we will take the wine and the water,

here we will take the bread of new birth.

Here you shall call your sons and your daughters,

call us anew to be salt for the earth.

Give us to drink the wine of compassion,

give us to eat the bread that is you.

Nourish us well, and teach us to fashion

lives that are holy and hearts that are true.

 

Not in the dark of buildings confining,

not in some heaven, light years away,

but here in this place, the new light is shining;

now is the Kingdom, now is the day.

Gather us in and hold us forever,

gather us in & make us your own.

Gather us in all peoples together,

fire of love in our flesh and our bone.

 

 

 

Prayers of Confession and Forgiveness

 

The Lord’s Prayer

 

 

 

 

Readings :       Leviticus 19 : 1 – 2, 15 – 18

                         Matthew 22 : 34 – 46

 

 

 

 

Brother, sister, let me serve you; let me be as Christ to you;

pray that I may have the grace to let you be my servant too.

 

We are pilgrims on a journey, and companions on the road;

we are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load.

 

I will hold the Christlight for you in the night time of your fear;

I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear.

 

I will weep when you are weeping; when you laugh I’ll laugh with you;

I will share your joy and sorrow, till we’ve seen this journey through.

 

When we sing to God in heaven, we shall find such harmony,

born of all we’ve known together of Christ’s love and agony.

 

 

 

Sermon

 

Lord of creation, to you be all praise!

Most mighty your working, most wondrous your ways!

Your glory and might are beyond us to tell,

and yet in the heart of the humble you dwell.

 

Lord of all power, I give you my will,

in joyful obedience your tasks to fulfill.

Your bondage is freedom, your service is song;

and, held in your keeping, my weakness is strong.

 

Lord of all wisdom, I give you my mind,

rich truth that surpasses our knowledge to find.

What eye has not seen and what ear has not heard

is taught by your Spirit and shines from your Word

 

 

 

 

Affirmation of Faith

Do you believe in the triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who

gathers, protects, and cares for the Church through Word and Spirit. This God has done since the beginning of the world and will do to the end.   We do

 

Do you believe that God is the One who wishes to bring about justice and true peace among people.  We do.

 

Do you believe that God, in a world full of injustice and enmity, is in a

special way the God of the destitute, the poor, and the wronged?

We do.

 

This is the faith of the Church! We are proud to confess it in Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.

Intercessory Prayers

 

 

 

 

When I needed a neighbour, were you there, were you there?

When I needed a neighbour, were you there?

And the creed and the colour and the name won’t matter,

Were you there?

 

I was hungry and thirsty, were you there, were you there?

I was hungry and thirsty, were you there?

And the creed and the colour…

 

I was cold, I was naked, Were you there, were you there?

I was cold, I was naked, Were you there?

And the creed and the colour…

 

When I needed a shelter Were you there, were you there?

When I needed a shelter Were you there?

And the creed and the colour…

 

When I needed a healer, Were you there, were you there?

When I needed a healer, Were you there?

And the creed and the colour…

 

Wherever you travel, I’ll be there, I’ll be there.

Wherever you travel, I’ll be there.

And the creed and the colour…
