The words, this story, of his life, of the proof of the Savior of the coming of the Messiah.
This story, this moment, the passing of the promise of John the words he cried out in the wilderness being revealed in this moment.
In this powerful witness, the acts he was performing declaring too, plainly to these disciples of John.
My voice rising, joy flowing over me these ancient words, the words of fulfillment of the love of God, he example of the Son welling up in me, pouring out joy not to be contained.
Seeing the faces of the congregation joining me in this mystery the unfolding of this witness of the Savior making himself known.
Together in worship, a congregation joining centering in the wonder of the proof of the Messiah revealed in the acts of his ministry this Son of God, made known in the touch of his hand the power of his word.
June 7, 2009 I served as Liturgist Call to Worship: Let us praise God, the creator of heaven and Earth. Let us seek God with open minds and open hearts. May we feel the Holy spirit among us. As the Scriptures are read and the Word proclaimed, as prayers and music are offered, may we receive with joy and thanksgiving what is offered for us. Unison Prayer: Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hidden. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may love you with our whole self, and worthily praise your holy name. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Luke 7:17-22 Prayer of Dedication: Loving God, the giver of all that is good; our lives are blessed daily by your gifts. Help us to receive your gifts with such gratitude, that we will be giving, as you are to us. We pray that through us the whole world will know the gift of your generous love in Jesus Christ, the one who gave his life for us, and for the whole world.
