We Sing: For One Great Peace TFWS 2185

  1. This thread I weave, this step I dance,
    this stone I carve, this ball I bounce,
    this nail I drive, this pearl I string,
    this flag I wave, this note I sing,

  2. this pot I shape, this fire I light,
    this fence I leap, this bone I knit,
    this seed I nurse, this rift I mend,
    this child I raise, this earth I tend,

  3. this cheque I write, this march I join,
    this faith I state, this truth I sign,
    this is small part, in one small place,
    of one heart’s beat for one great Peace.

Sermon

We Sing: Sent By the Lord Am I ATOK 412

Sent by the Lord am I;
my hands are ready now
to make the earth the place
in which the kingdom comes.
Sent by the Lord am I;
my hands are ready now
to make the earth the place
in which the kingdom comes.

The angels cannot change
a world of hurt and pain
into a world of love,
of justice and of peace.
The task is mine to do,
to set it really free.
O help me to obey,
help me to do your will.

Words: Traditional Nicaraguan. Translation © Jorge Maldonodo, World Council of Churches.

Prayers of the People

The Lord’s Prayer

And now with the confidence of the children of God, let us pray the prayer Jesus taught us saying…

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name,
your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin
against us.
Save us in the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power
and the glory are yours
now and forever. Amen.

We Sing: God! When Human Bonds Are Broken TiS 683

  1. God! When human bonds are broken
    and we lack the love or skill
    to restore the hope of healing,
    give us grace and make us still.

  2. Through that stillness, with your Spirit
    come into our world of stress,
    for the sake of Christ forgiving;
    all the failures we confess.

  3. You in us are bruised and broken:
    hear us as we seek release
    from the pain of earlier living;
    set us free and grant us peace.

  4. Send us, God of new beginnings,
    humbly hopeful into life.
    Use us as a means of blessing:
    make us stronger, give us faith.

  5. Give us faith to be more faithful,
    give us hope to be more true,
    give us love to go on learning:
    God! Encourage and renew!
