March 22, 2020

 

Good morning friends! Here is the worship service I recorded for Sunday, March 22, 2020.  

 

Here is the liturgy if you'd like to follow along: 

 

Gathering

  • Greeting

    • The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. 

    • Announcements

      • Worship is online March 22, 2020 and March 29, 2020.

      • Session and I will reevaluate our plan and communicate that plan to you in early April.

    • Prayer Requests

        • Family/Friends of David Rowe who passed away.

        • Cathy Sagi’s Mom- hospitalized with pneumonia. 

  • Opening Prayer

    • God of all Glory, on this first day you began creation, bringing light out of darkness. On this first day you began your new creation, raising Jesus Christ out of the darkness of death. On this Lord’s Day grant that we, the people you create by water and the Spirit, may be joined with all your works in praising you for your great glory. Through Jesus Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit, we praise you now and forever. Amen. 

  • Confession of Sin

    • Merciful God, you pardon all who truly repent and turn to you. We humbly confess our sins and ask your mercy. We have not loved you with our whole heart, nor have we loved our neighbor as ourselves. We have not done justice, loved kindness, or walked humbly with you, our God. Have mercy on us, O God, in your loving kindness. In your great compassion, cleanse us from our sin. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Do not cast us from your presence, or take your Holy Spirit from us. Restore us the joy of your salvation and sustain us with your bountiful Spirit. Amen. 

    • I declare to you in the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven. Go in peace. 

  • Opening Song           Nada te Turbe                                                          GtG 820

    • Nada te turnbe, nada tees pante. Quin a Dios tiene nada le falta. Nada te turnbe, nada tees pante. Solo Dios basta. 

    • Nothing can trouble; nothing can frighten. Those who seek God shall never go wanting. Nothing can trouble; nothing can frighten. God alone fills us. 

The Word

  • Old Testament Reading 

Esther 4:1-17 

4 When Mordecai learned of all that had been done, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and ashes, and went out into the city, wailing loudly and bitterly. 2 But he went only as far as the king’s gate, because no one clothed in sackcloth was allowed to enter it. 3 In every province to which the edict and order of the king came, there was great mourning among the Jews, with fasting, weeping and wailing. Many lay in sackcloth and ashes.
