Hymn

Breathe on Me, Breath of God

NCH #292

Breathe on me, Breath of God, fill me with life anew

That I may love the way you love and do what you would do.


Breathe on me, Breath of God, until my heart is pure,

Until with you I will one will, to do and to endure.

 

Breathe on me, Breath of God, stir in me one desire:

That every earthly part of me may glow with holy fire.

 

Breathe on me, Breath of God, so shall I never die,

But live with you the perfect life of your eternity.

*Opening Prayer (in unison)

Triune God, we desire to relate to You and to each other more fully, so that we might draw into the depths of Your love, first glimpsed at creation, when Your voice called us and the earth forth into Your light. Continue to call us, guide us and lead us into this world and beyond.…


 (Silence)


Lord’s Prayer

Our Father* who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.


*Please feel free to pray as you wish. We respect tradition  — and we welcome images of the Divine that are diverse and inclusive.

Ministry of the Word

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 6:1-4   

           

Deacon Jeff Swain

A Vision of God in the Temple

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lofty; and the hem of his robe filled the temple. Seraphs were in attendance above him; each had six wings: with two they covered their faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. And one called to another and said: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.’ The pivots on the thresholds shook at the voices of those who called, and the house filled with smoke.

Finding the Hidden God

Daryl Denelle, Ministry Intern

Pastoral Prayer and Silent Prayer

Hymn

Spirit of God, Descend upon My Heart 

Senior Choir, Eileen Hutchins, piano

NCH #290

Spirit of God, descend upon my heart;

Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move;

Stoop to my weakness, mighty as you are,

And make me love you as I ought to love.

 

I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies,

No sudden rending of the veil of clay,

No angel visitant, no opening skies;

But take the dimness of my soul away.

 

Have you not bid us love you every way?

All, all your own: soul, heart, and strength, and mind;

I see your cross—there teach my heart to stay:

O let me seek you, and O let me find.

 

Teach me to feel that you are always nigh;

Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,

To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;

Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.

 

Teach me to love you as you angels love,

One holy passion filling all my frame;

The baptism of the heaven descended dove,

My heart an altar, and your love the flame.

Congregational Commissioning (in unison)

As we leave this place of worship, 

let us work to create Christ’s realm of love, justice, and peace. 

May we live as the Holy One requires:

doing justice,

loving kindness,

and walking humbly with our God. 

Amen.

Benediction
