Passing the Peace

Hymn:  MV# 135 “Called by Earth and Sky"

Call to Worship:

L. O God of unchangeable power and eternal light. Look favourably on your whole church, that wonderful and sacred mystery.

P. In the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquility the plan of salvation. 

L.  Let the whole world see and know that which are cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new.

P. All things are being brought to their perfection by the one through whom all things are made, and Jesus Christ, and in unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever, Amen

Prayer of Approach:

Let us Pray- God of wind and fire, of darkness and of light- speak to us in this hour of worship.  Calm our fears and grant us the assurance of things

hoped for.  Overcome our anxieties and calm the troubled waters in our lives.  Grant to us a heart of peace and a tongue of praise and holy hands to raise in prayer to you.  Grant that we may gain new confidences in your mercy and new strength to do your will and to shine with your light before others.  We ask in Jesus’ name.  Amen
