Virtual Worship for
January 16, 2022
Welcome to Zoom Worship! While we hope to offer in-person options for formation and worship again soon, it's good to be together in this way.
What does life lived with God look like? What does your life lived with God look like? And how do we remain faithful in these times?

Opening Prayer and Meditation ~ Karen Richter

Special Music ~ "Come Sweet Justice"
Shared by Forrest and Carol Bachtel

The world is hungry for justice.
God’s word will point the way.
The One who came to speak the truth,
to challenge those who say
that we need not care for strangers, the sick,
the lost, the poor,
the voiceless ones, the outcast,
the honored guests of God. 

O come, O come sweet justice, come.
O come, O come sweet justice, come.

When will we learn how to see them,
each one a child of God?
When will our voices raise for them
to demand their stories heard?
Do we wait until all hope is gone,
their songs to die away?
With passion we must rise up —
Risk in the name of God.
Celebrations and Prayer Requests
This is our time to share the celebrations of our lives: birthdays,
anniversaries, words of kindness and works of peace and justice.

Giving and Stewardship

Offertory ~ "Dream God's Dream" by Brian Sirchio
Word About Life ~ John 2:1-11

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine gave out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Now standing there were six stone water jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward.” So they took it. When the steward tasted the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.” Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
