All creation sings a story
Of great splendours to declare;
When we contemplate its beauty
We are called forth into prayer.
We, enchanted, stand in silence;
God discovered everywhere.
Lord Jesus, whom we call Christ, hear our prayer:
We have finished the book. Were you here, reading over our shoulders? Listening to our comments? What do you think?
Everything is changing
Like the butterflies
Grow from eggs so tiny
To their adult size.
One: God of many names and faces, we have come together for a little while; some to worship, some to lay down burdens, some to find a moment of rest.read more
We have said, “Your word is a lamp for our feet, a light for our path.” Sometimes it seems more like a flickering candle.
Eternal fury fires the saints,
who shake and rattle, push and shove,
who challenge every bland excuse,
who seek for justice, work for love.

1. Let’s play at being ice,
As cold as frost and snow,
Bringing sleeping time
When life can grow.
1. I would like to be like Jesus,
Gentle, loving, strong and true.
I would like to be like Jesus
And see God in me and you.
1. If I scramble up a hill,
If I climb into a tree,
If I look out from a cliff,
I can see and see and see.
1. Christmas is a time for children,
Time for presents, fun and play.
Christmas is a time for children,
Let’s all be children on this Christmas Day.
1. Let’s live nativity;
let the manger shape our minds,
the baby touch our hearts,
the mother bless our flesh.
Calling the Circle
Lighting the altar candles, white candle in the center:
Mother of all life, soul of our being, center of all our longing,
who shines for all and flows through all,
Be with us, guide us, now and always.
Light a candle as each line is spoken:
This candle is for the 150 loving, caring members of Sausalito Presbyterian Church.
This candle is for the people in our church who suffer from illness or disability.
