Watchword for the Week
Since we have a great high priest who has passed
through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us
hold fast to our confession. (Hebrews 4:14)
(Moravian Daily Texts 2015)
WELCOME and CALL to WORSHIP
The Lord is my light and my salvation,
whom then shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom then shall I be afraid?
One thing I have asked of the Lord,
that I will seek after:
To live in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to ask for his guidance.
I believe I shall see the goodness
of the Lord in the land of the living.
Trust in the Lord, have faith, be of
good courage. Trust in the Lord!

PRAYER of APPROACH and CONFESSION
O God of life, eternity cannot hold you,
nor can our little words catch the
magnificence of your kindness.
Yet in the space of our small hearts
and in the silence, you can
come close and repair us.
O God of life, grant us your forgiveness
for our careless thoughts,
for our thoughtless deeds,
for our empty speech, and the words
with which we have wounded.
O loving Christ, scatter the sin from
our souls as the mist from the hills;
start what we do, inform what we say,
redeem who we are. In you we place our
hope, our great and living hope, this day and
ASSURANCE of FORGIVENESS
In the letter to the Hebrews are these words:
“Therefore let us approach God’s throne of
grace with confidence, where we will receive
mercy and find grace to help us in our time of
need.” So know that, whatever is going on in
your life, you can boldly turn to God, who offers
us grace and mercy over and over again.
Thanks be to God. Amen.
Chorus All things bright and beautiful
All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful,
the Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
he made their glowing colours,
he made their tiny wings.
