Opening Prayer:+                                                     

Merciful and Just God, we gather here this morning, each of us with many concerns on our hearts. Our hearts are concerned with systems of injustice which strip people of their dignity and their very lives. Help us to be those who would seek peace with justice, who would fight for those who are oppressed, offer voices for the voiceless and dignity for all humankind. Be with us this day and guide our steps toward a more just world in your name. AMEN.

 

Prayer of Illumination:                                                         UMH#6

Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that, as the Scriptures are read and your Word proclaimed we may hear with joy what you say to us today.  Amen

Message:

 

Response to the Word:         Affirmation of Faith -  

 

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;*
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic** church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer: 

Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be they name.  Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen

This is the Day:

 

1 This is the day, this is the day

that the Lord has made, that our God has made.

We will rejoice, we will rejoice,

and be glad in it, and be glad in it.

This is the day that the Lord has made,

we will rejoice and be glad in it.

This is the day, this is the day

that the Lord has made.

 

2 Open to us, open to us

the gates of God, the gates of God;

we will go in, we will go in,

and praise the Lord, and praise the Lord.

Open to us the gates of God;

we will go in and praise the Lord.

Open to us, open to us

the gates of God.

 

3 You are our God, you are our God

we will praise your name, we will praise your name;

we will give thanks, we will give thanks,

for your faithfulness, for your faithfulness.

You are our God; we will praise your name;

we will give thanks for your faithfulness.

You are our God, you are our God;

we will praise your name.

 

 

 

Morning Has Broken

 

Morning has broken like the first morning

Blackbird has spoken like the first bird

Praise for the singing

Praise for the morning

Praise for them springing fresh from the Word

 

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven

Like the first dewfall on the first grass

Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden

Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

 

Mine is the sunlight

Mine is the morning

Born of the one light Eden saw play

Praise with elation, praise ev'ry morning

God's recreation of the new day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Shall Overcome

 

We shall overcome, we shall overcome,

We shall overcome someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We shall overcome someday.

 

We'll walk hand in hand, we'll walk hand in hand,

We'll walk hand in hand someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We'll walk hand in hand someday.

 

We shall all be free, we shall all be free,

We shall all be free someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We shall overcome someday.

 

We shall live in peace, we shall live in peace,

We shall live in peace someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We shall live in peace someday.

 

The Lord will see us through, The Lord will see us through,

The Lord will see us through someday;

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We shall overcome someday.
