Sunday 1st May 2016 – Easter 6C

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

for justice

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…

 

 

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Creator

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.

 

Revealing Spirit,

who leads us to new knowledge of forgiveness,

may we settle in Your peace

so that our troubled hearts may be stilled

in worship

and life.

Amen.
