Facing God: adapted from Psalm 9

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)


Leader: The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed,

All: a stronghold in times of trouble.

Leader: And those who know your name put their trust in you,

All: for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.

Leader: Be gracious to me, O LORD, so that I may recount all your praises,

All: and rejoice in your deliverance.

Leader: Let us worship God.


All Who Are Thirsty

All who are thirsty

All who are weak

Come to the fountain

Dip your heart in the stream of life

Let the pain and the sorrow

Be washed away

In the waves of God’s mercy

As deep cries out to deep


Come, Lord Jesus, come (2x)

All who are thirsty

All who are weak

Come to the fountain

Dip your heart in the stream of life

Let the pain and the sorrow

Be washed away

In the waves of God’s mercy

As deep cries out to deep


Come, Lord Jesus, come (2x)

Holy Spirit, come (2x)


As deep cries out to deep

As deep cries out to deep

As deep cries out to deep


Come, Lord Jesus, come (2x)

Holy Spirit, come (2x)


Laying Down Our Burdens & Assurance

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

All: Merciful God, we admit that we do not often trust in your rest. We, like so many in our world, are addicted to movement and results. We do not trust that there are others to pick up our work. We do not believe that we are deserving of rest, even though you are the God of rest and restoration. Forgive us for our faithlessness. We ask you to calm the chaotic waters in our lives and send us your peace. We pray in the name of your son, Jesus, who also rested. 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.

Refrain: I’m Gonna Live

I’m gonna live/work/pray/sing so God can use me

Anywhere, Lord, anytime.

I’m gonna live/work/pray/sing so God can use me

Anywhere, Lord, anytime.


Children's Bible Story


Lectio Conversation (Mark 4:35-41)

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

What stands out to you about this text?

What do you think is the significance of Jesus sleeping in this story?

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

Discussion

Homily

O The Deep Deep Love of Jesus

O the deep, deep love of Jesus

Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free

Rolling as a mighty ocean

In its fullness over me

Underneath me, all around me

Is the current of your love

Leading onward, leading homeward

To your glorious rest above


Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus

Spread his praise from shore to shore

How he loveth, ever loveth

Changeth never, nevermore.

How he watches o’er his loved ones

Died to call them all his own

How for them he intercedes

Watcheth o’er them from the throne


O the deep, deep love of Jesus

Love of every love the best:

‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing

‘Tis a haven sweet of rest

O the deep deep love of Jesus

Tis a heaven of heavens to me

And it lifts me up to glory

For it lifts me up to thee

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.

It Is Well With My Soul

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll;

Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,

It is well, it is well, with my soul


Chorus:

It is well, (It is well), with my soul (with my soul)

It is well, it is well, with my soul


My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

My sin, not in part but the whole,

Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

Chorus


And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;

The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,

Even so, it is well with my soul.

Chorus

Sending/Blessing (from 2 Corinthians 2)

(Remain muted and read liturgy aloud at home)

As we close this time together, let us read this word from second letter to the Corinthians:

All: From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way. So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!

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.
