All night I lay on my bed
I sought him whom my soul loves.
I sought him but did not find him.
We are here to praise and enjoy God with body and soul, mind and heart, with song and word, with hands and feet.
We are here to give because of the abundance God has given us, to share with each other, and to receive, because God has created us to depend on each other.
We are here to celebrate the differences that otherwise might divide us: differences of age, of body, of culture, of opinion, of ability, of religious conviction.
We are here to put things in perspective: to celebrate what matters, to laugh about things we take too seriously, to cry about things that truly touch our hearts.
So may it be this morning: Amen!
Forgiveness is our most precious gift,
The most Christ-like blessing we can share.
We are one with the creatures,
One with the plants,
One with the life of Earth.
Praise God for visions great and small,
Praise God who calls us one and all,
Praise God whose Spirit gives new sight,
Praise God who fills our lives with light. Amen
Praise God who gives us life to live
Praise God who calls us all to give
Praise God whose image we all bear
Praise God whose love we now can share
A pinch of yeast within the flour
A treasure hidden in the ground
We know not the day nor hour
When the pearl is finally found
I believe in the good things coming…
I am no master
I know nothing
But I am servant
and I know something
I am a witness…read more
Deep Peace to You….read more
Praise God who calls us on from here,
Praise Christ whose presence calms our fear,
Praise Holy Spirit in our lives,
God calls and leads and through us thrives. Amen.
