Introduction and Call to Worship

God has spoken us into being, calling us to life in Jesus and commissioning us in the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us then raise our voices to God in worship.

 

Collect

Holy God, faithful and unchanging; enlarge our minds with the knowledge of you truth, and draw us more deeply into the mystery of your love, that we may truly worship you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Today’s Readings

First Reading Proverbs 8:1-4; 22-31

The wisdom of God’s Spirit is woven into the very act of creation, and continues to offer guidance to those who attend to her voice.

Second Reading Romans 5:1-5

Reconciled to God through Christ, we look to share his glory. Our hope is resilient through all circumstances, as the Holy Spirit makes God’s love alive within us.

Gospel John 16:12-15

On the eve of his death, Jesus comforts his disciples. He foretells how the Holy Spirit will guide them in truth as he returns to God.

 

Introduction to the Peace.

By faith you have received the peace that is given to us through Jesus, a peace we could never obtain for ourselves. Let us then share this peace with one another. The peace of the Lord…

 

Post Communion Prayer.

Almighty and eternal God, you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and live and reign in the perfect unity of love: hold us firm in this faith, that we may know you in all your ways and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory, who are three Persons yet one God, now and for ever. Amen

 

Blessing

And now may God, who has formed us for him self, who has forgiven us in Christ and filled us with the Holy Spirit, bless us, that the Spirit may guide us to glorify Christ in our lives each day. And the blessing of God almighty…

Thoughts for this week.    I want to thank God for the gifts of life. Not requests, no complaints, just thankful to be alive. And remember, a beautiful face will age and a perfect body will change, but a beautiful soul will be a beautiful soul will always be beautiful.
