APPROACHING GOD

We acknowledge that the land upon which we gather is unceded Mi’kmaq territory. Epekwitk (Prince Edward Island) is covered by the historic Treaties of Peace and Friendship. We pay our respects to the Indigenous Mi’kmaq People who have occupied this Island for over 12,000 years; past, present and future.

joy in work and in play.

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Christ is Lord of our days!

CALL TO WORSHIP: (Psalm 104:1-4 NRSV)

One:  Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great.

All:  You are clothed with honor and majesty, wrapped in light as with a garment.
One:  You stretch out the heavens like a tent, you set the beams of your[a] chambers on the waters, y

ou make the clouds your chariot, you ride on the wings of the wind,

All:  You make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers. Amen.

Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?

Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same?

Will you let me love be shown, will you let my name be known?

Will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?

 

Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name?

Will you care for cruel and kind and never be the same?

Will you risk the hostile stare should your life attract or scare?

Will you let me answer prayer in you and you in me?

 

Will you let the blinded see if I but call your name?

Will you set the prisoners free and never be the same?

Will you kiss the leper clean, and do such as this unseen

And admit to what I mean in your and you in me?

 

Will you love the “you”you hide if I but call your name?

WIll you quell the fear inside and never be the same?

Will you use the faith you’ve found to reshape the world around

Through my sight and touch and sound in your and you in me?

 

Christ, your summons echoes true when you but call my name.

Let me turn and follow you and never be the same.

In your company I’ll go where your love and footsteps show.

Thus I’ll move and live and grow in you and you in me

GATHERING PRAYER: Written by Rev. Rachel Campbell

Gracious God, may we come to this place of worship ready to bare witness.  To seek refuge in this place we call sanctuary and take the lessons we receive with us.  Give us the courage to do and to be.  Give us the strength to lift-up your light that shines so brilliantly in and around us.  In Jesus name we pray.  Amen.

We are pilgrims on a journey

Fellow travellers on the road

We are here to help each other

Walk the mile and bear the load

 

Sister let me be your servant

Let me be as Christ to you

Pray that I might have the grace to

Let you be my servant too

 

I will hold the Christ-light for you

In the night time of your fear

I will hold my hand out to you

Speak the peace you long to hear

 

I will weep when you are weeping

When you laugh I’ll laugh with you

I will share your joy and sorrow

Till we’ve seen this journey through

 

When we sing to God in heaven

We shall find such harmony

Born of all we’ve known together

Of Christ’s love and agony

 

Brother sister let me serve you

Let me be as Christ to you

Pray that I may have the grace to

Let you be my servant too
