Call to Worship
The Lord is gracious to us
and blesses us,
causing His face to shine upon us.
The Lord’s ways are known upon the earth
as salvation sweeps into human life.
As those who belong to the Living Creator,
who we praise
and a guiding hand in human life.
We praise the Creating Spirit for this planting time,
when the ground is prepared
and the hope of fruits to come
is sown in seed form.
Then we will give praise the yield of the harvest
that bursts with colour and energy,
that the Lord’s blessing may be bestowed.
Let us worship God…
who brings light and life,
that all may walk amidst
and share the splendour of creation,
we worship You from the depths of our heart
to the height of our being.
You close no doors
to encountering Your presence,
and offer the water of life
that flows from You
that all of creation
may burst to life
with the fruits of Your healing spirit.
In the light of the heavenly Hosts
the deceitfulness of humanity is exposed,
as nations fail to offer compassion for one another other,
and individuals wallow in the differences,
hurt and pain.
In the presence of curse of life,
the Lamb of God playfully gambles,
bringing healing and tenderness,
that dialogue may begin,
and new paths into a dwelling place with God
are brought into sight.
who leads us to new knowledge of forgiveness,
may we settle in Your peace
so that our troubled hearts may be stilled
