We Are One
(VU 402)

We are one as we come, as we come,
Joyful to be here,
In the praise on our lips there's
A sense that God is near.
We are one as we sing,
As we seek, we are found;
And we come needful of God's grace
as we meet, together in this place.


We are one, as we share,
As we share brokenness and fear,
In the touch of a hand there's
A sense that God is here.
We are one as we care, as we heal,
We are healed;
And we share warmth in God's embrace
As we pray together in this place.


We are one as we feast, as we feast,
Peace becomes the sign;
In the bread and the wine
There's a sense of love divine.
We are one as we come,
As we feed, we are fed;
And we feel God's refreshing grace
As we meet at table in this place.


We are one as we hear, as we hear,
Heart and hand unite;
In the word we receive
There's a sense that God is light.
We are one as we leave,
As we love, we are loved;
And we seek justice in God's ways
As we move together from this place.





Philipians 3:4b - 14

Matthew 21:33-46

The Matthew text can be read HERE.



 

Jesus Bids Us Shine

Jesus bids us shine, with a clear, pure light,
Like a little candle burning in the night;
In this world of darkness so let us shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine, first of all for Him;
Well He sees and knows it if our light is dim;
Jesus walks beside us to help us shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

 

Jesus bids us shine, then, for all around
Many kinds of darkness in this world are found:
Sin, and want, and sorrow; so we must shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine, as we work for Him,
Bringing those that wander from the paths of sin;
He will ever help us, if we shine,
You in your small corner, and I in mine.



The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand


 
The text of Scott's sermon is HERE.




`
As We Gather at Your Table
(VU 457 Verses 1 & 3)

As we gather at your table,
As we listen to your word,
Help us know, O God, your presence;
Let our hearts and minds be stirred.
Nourish us with sacred story
Till we claim it as our own;
Teach us through this holy banquet
How to make Love's victory known.
 


Gracious Spirit, help us summon
other guests to share that feast
where triumphant Love will welcome
those who had been last and least.
There no more will envy blind us,
nor will pride our peace destroy,
as we join with saints and angels
to repeat the sounding joy.



This Is God's Wondrous World
(VU 296)

This is God's wondrous world,
and to my listening ears,
All nature sings, and round me rings
The music of the spheres.
This is God's wondrous world,
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas,
God's hand the wonders wrought.


This is God's wondrous world,
the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white,
declare their maker's praise.
This is God's wondrous world.
God shines in all that's fair,
In the rustling grass or mountain pass,
God's voice speaks everywhere.
 

This is God's wondrous world.
O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong
Seems oft so strong.
God is the ruler yet.
This is God's wondrous world:
Why should my heart be sad?
Let voices sing,
Let the heavens ring!
God reigns, let earth be glad.





Postlude: Allegro Cantabile
(Samuel Wesley)




And, of course, Connie will see us on out with a few Oldies but Goodies:

Shall We Gather at the River
and
My Life Flows On
