The Second Sunday of Creation
Hymn. Jesus Calls Us #342VU
Scripture Lessons. Proverbs 31:10-31
Psalm 1 p.724VU
Prayer/Blessing: Like the roots of a strong oak, God is under our feet.
Like the stars in the night sky, God is over our heads.
Like the sun on the horizon, God is ever before us.
Like the gentle rain falling, God’s love is filling our hearts.
Like the wings of an eagle, we open our arms to care for this world.
Like the river which runs to the ocean, we know that our home is in God.
And so we go forth surrounded by the presence of God, and filled with the peace of God. Amen.
(Written by Keri Wehlander and published in Circles of Grace. Also set to music and sung by Linnea Good.)
Hymn. For the Beauty of the Earth #226
