This is my first week in a new charge. The service for my arrival is Harvest, and there will be children included throughout the service. In a Church of Scotland fashion, I am to be preached in by a friend and colleague. So my only responsibility are the opening two worship items. So here is a call to worship….
May the Lord be gracious to us and bless us
and make his face to shine upon us.
May His ways be known in all the earth.
With people of all nations,
we rejoice and are glad
for the for the Harvest God invites of our lives.
In our praise and worship
may we sing and tell of God’s love,
and His desire for justice
in our care of our world and each other.
