Welcome/Announcements

Facing God (from Psalm 133 )

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)


Leader: How very good and pleasant it is when kindred

live together in unity.

All: It is like the precious oil on the head, running

down over the collar.


Leader: It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the

mountains of Zion.

All: For there the Lord ordained God’s blessing, life

for evermore.



As The Deer

As the deer panteth for the water

So my soul longeth after thee

You alone are my hearts desire

And I long to worship thee


Chorus

You alone are my strength, my shield

To You alone may my spirit yield

You alone are my hearts desire

And I long to worship thee


I want You more than gold or silver,

Only You can satisfy.

You alone are the real joy Giver,

And the apple of my eye.


Chorus



Laying Down Our Burdens & Assurance

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

All: Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you by what we have done and what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart, mind, and strength. We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. Forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways to the glory of your name. Amen.

Leader: The Good News is that Christ has come and Christ will come again.

All: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God.



People look east verse 5

Angels, announce with shouts of mirth Christ who brings new life to earth. Set every peak and valley humming With the word, the Lord is coming. People, look east and sing today: Love, the Lord, is on the way.



Lectio Conversation - Luke 4:21-30

What do you make of the people’s anger in this passage?

Why do you think Jesus pushed them to this point?

(Hold onto these questions while we read our scripture.)


​​He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” they asked. Jesus said to them, “Surely you will quote this proverb to me: ‘Physician, heal yourself!’ And you will tell me, ‘Do here in your hometown what we have heard that you did in Capernaum.’” “Truly I tell you,” he continued, “no prophet is accepted in his hometown. I assure you that there were many widows in Israel in Elijah’s time, when the sky was shut for three and a half years and there was a severe famine throughout the land. Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow in Zarephath in the region of Sidon. And there were many in Israel with leprosy in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed—only Naaman the Syrian.”

All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him off the cliff. But he walked right through the crowd and went on his way.

Homily


My Hope is Built

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

But wholly lean on Jesus' name.


Chorus:

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand

All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils his lovely face,

I rest on his unchanging grace;

In every high and stormy gale

My anchor holds within the vale.

Chorus

His oath, his covenant, his blood

Support me in the whelming flood;

When all around my soul gives way,

He then is all my Hope and Stay.

Chorus


When he shall come with trumpet sound,

Oh, may I then in him be found,

Clothed in his righteousness alone,

Faultless to stand before the throne!

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand

All other ground is sinking sand

Chorus

Prayers of the People

Now is the time when we share the prayers on our hearts and minds. If you have a private prayer, you can email them to us throughout the week and the pastoral team will pray over them.

If you have a prayer, please unmute your mic to share.

After each prayer, I will lead our response on mute:

Lord in your mercy // hear our prayers

***

Now I will offer a prayer for the greater community and world. We will end by saying the Lord’s Prayer together in whatever language you prefer. Let us pray.

(muted)

Leader: Just as God/Christ taught us to pray...

All: Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy 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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.

This Road

All heavy laden acquainted with sorrow

May Christ in our marrow carry us home

From alabaster come blessings of laughter

A fragrance of passion and joy from the truth

Grant the unbroken tears ever flowing

From hearts of contrition only for You

May sin never hold true that love never broke through

For God’s mercy holds us and we are God’s own


This road that we tra----vel

May it be the straight and narrow

God give us peace and grace from You

All the day

Shelter with fi----re

Our voices we raise still higher

God give us peace and grace from You

All the day through



Sending/Blessing (from 1 John 1)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)


As we close this time together, let us read this word from the first letter of John:


All: We declare to you what was from the beginning, what we

have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life — this life was revealed, and we have seen it and testify to it— we declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.


Leader: The steadfast love of God goes with you, the deep

and abiding peace of Christ goes with you, and the comfort and guidance of the Holy Spirit goes with you, now and always. Amen.
