Loving God, open our hearts so that we may feel the breath and play of your Spirit.
Unclench our hands so that we may reach out to one another and touch and be healed.
Open our lips that we may drink in the delight and wonder of life.
Unstop our ears to hear your agony at human inhumanity.
Open our eyes so that we may see Christ in friend and stranger.
Breathe your Spirit into us and touch our lives with the life of Christ.
Amen!

Great and loving God, we who come to worship are the very ones who sometimes wonder if you have abandoned us, left us to fend for ourselves. We rely upon your ever-presence, and in the same breath, suspect your absence.

Encourage us, O God, when we cannot find you.

As we gather here, across space but together in time, give us the gifts of vision and hope. Enable us to recognize your workings in the commonplace and the everyday, in the extraordinary and once in a lifetime.

Open our hearts Lord, unblock our minds, that we may perceive what is and what, by your grace, may yet be. In the spirit of Christ we pray. Amen.

We gather in this moment to bless God.
Let the sound of our praise be heard. 

Life in this world tests us right now…
We are living through a trial, and we are all carrying burdens.

We face threats in this life.
We go through storms and troubles.
Yet God always brings us out into a spacious place.

God brings us to a place full of mercy and love, a place of joy and community.
We come together in spirit now to seek God, who blesses us.

How Can We Know the Way?

Order of Worship: Click here for a downloadable/printable copy.

When we cannot see the path,
Jesus is the way.
When we cannot trust the voices we hear,
Jesus is the truth.
When it feels like death is closing in,
Jesus is the life.
So do not let your hearts be troubled.

In the Valley of the Shadow, Unafraid

Order of Worship: Click here for a downloadable/printable copy.

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
     He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
     he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths
     for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, 
     I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
     your rod and your staff—
     they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
     in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
     my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
     all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
     my whole life long.

OPENING PRAYER

Loving God, come and speak to our hearts today. May we, like those on the Emmaus Road, find your words burning with hope in our lives. Strengthen us and give us courage for the journey ahead, we pray in Christ’s name. Amen.

SONG: Stay with Us

Ian Timmons

(Our various internet speeds prevent us from singing together, so please remember to stay muted on Zoom. Also, please delight your housemates by singing along with gusto).

Stay with us, till night has come: our praise to you this day be sung.
Bless our bread, open our eyes: Jesus be our great surprise.

Walk with us, our spirits sigh: hear our weary spirits cry,
feel again our loss our pain: Jesus, take us to your side.

Talk with us, will we behold a joyful life you will unfold:
heal our eyes to see the prize: Jesus take us to the light.

Stay with us, till day is done: no tears nor dark shall dim the sun.
Cheer the heart, your grace impart: Jesus, bring eternal life.

CALL TO WORSHIP *

Chris Christensen and Carolyn Rux

When astronauts first showed us our planet from the moon, they changed our perspective and our theology forever.
Turning and turning, our pale blue globe burns bright in the black spaces of eternity.

The Earth is the Lord’s, and all that is in it – all life embodied in the only home we know.

God created life in the oceans, and continues to nourish it with nutrients from the mountains.

Trace the course of a river to its source; stand among the mountains and marvel.

Who would dare defile this paradise?
Jubilation, exaltation, celebration, one and all!

Within the womb of the heavens, the Earth leaps to praise its Creator.

As the pearl necklace of planets swing around the sun, as the shining oceans embrace the continents, so do all living things praise the Giver of Life.

For God expressed a thought, and the thought took life.

God wanted to speak, and the Word became flesh and lived among us.

In that Word was holiness, the spirit that makes every life more than the sum of its chemicals.

From the tiniest plankton in the sea to the great whales, from the ants that burrow in the dust to the eagle that soars in the heavens – all owe their existence to God.

Fire and hail, snow and frost, sun and drought, wind and rain
– in God, all things work together for good.

Mighty mountains compost into rich soil;

fruit trees and maples aerate the atmosphere.

The dung beetle depends on the waste of cattle;

Birds and wind currents carry seeds to new orchards.

Not one part is cut off from God’s energy;

Everything has been equally created to live interdependently.

God scatters new life even among weeds and thistles;

And all Creation responds with rejoicing.

* From Psalm 24 and 148, “Earth-rise” & “God’s Profligate Generosity”
