Scripture
Psalm 130 (translation by Stephen Mitchell)
Out of the depths, Lord, I call you:
let me feel you even in this darkness.
Take away by affliction
or give me the strength to endure.
If all our mistakes were indelible,
which of us could survive?
But you have forgiven us,
even when we cannot forgive ourselves.
 
I listen for you; my soul
listens like a deer in the forest.
My soul waits more intently
than a soldier watching for the dawn.
Answer me; open my heart
so that I can wholly receive you.
And teach me that when I am ready,
you will let this suffering pass.

In our homes we meet to worship
far away from sacred space
By the spirit, Christ is with us,
making this a holy place.
In these days of social distance,
we are called to meet apart.
Still we pray for one another,
hold each other in our hearts.
If this time indeed is holy,
we must keep it truly so.
Even in our isolation,
God’s rich blessings overflow.
We avoid the world’s distractions,
set our minds on things above:
Patience, kindness, goodness, mercy,
faith, joy, peace, abiding love.
