Proper 21C

We welcome in a spirit of silence as the prelude begins our service.

The flowers today are given to the glory of God in loving memory of Rena and Allyn Stillman by Dolores Stillman and grandchildren, Paul and Trish!

OUR APPROACH TO GOD
Prelude 
Introit "The Family of God” W. Gaither

Welcome!

Call to Worship: Psalm 33 & Tobit 13
Shout joy to the Lord, lovers of justice!
HOW RIGHT IT IS TO PRAISE GOD!
For the word of God is true: what God says, God does!
THIS LOVER OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE FILLS THE EARTH WITH LOVE!
Match your praise to all God has done for you.
BLESS THE LORD OF JUSTICE, WHO RULES FOREVER!

*Hymn 455 "Come, All Christians, Be Comforted"

Let us be before our God in silence.

Unison Prayer: Psalm 15 & 5
LORD, WHO IS WELCOME IN YOUR HOUSE? WHO CAN REST ON YOUR HOLY MOUNTAIN? THOSE WHO WALK WITH INTEGRITY AND DO ONLY WHAT IS RIGHT, SPEAKING TRUTH WITH COURAGE...THESE ARE THE JUST: THEY STAND FOREVER UNSHAKEN...YOU NEVER WELCOME EVIL, GOD, NEVER LET IT STAY...BY YOUR GREAT MERCY I ENTER YOUR HOUSE AND BEND LOW IN AWE WITHIN YOUR HOLY TEMPLE...BRING ME YOUR JUSTICE.

Kyrie (sung)
LORD, HAVE MERCY ON US.
CHRIST, HAVE MERCY ON US.
LORD, HAVE MERCY ON US.


A Word of Assurance: Psalm 24 & 11
Whoever has integrity: not chasing shadows, not living lies. God will bless them, their
Savior will bring justice. The Lord loves justice, the just will see God's face.

The Summary of the Law (Mark 12:29b-31)
This is the first commandment:
HEAR O ISRAEL, 
THE LORD OUR GOD, 
THE LORD IS ONE!  
THEREFORE YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD 
WITH ALL YOUR HEART, 
WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, 
WITH ALL YOUR MIND, 
AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.

This is the second commandment:
YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.
There is no greater commandment than these.

Anthem "Rejoice the Lord is King!" J. Darwell
