Sunday, May 8, 2022 Good Shepherd Sunday

 This Sunday is also Christian Family Sunday and we pray for God’s blessings on all families, and on all the women of the community, who may be mothers or grandmothers, aunties,  foster mothers, or caregivers and who make God’s love live in our homes and communities. 

Hymn       Praise My Soul the God of Heaven #240

Prayer: Loving God, Father, Mother of our being, recall to my heart always your tender love and faithfulness. Like children who can look eagerly toward their mother’s kiss and their father’s embrace, may I run freely toward your open arms, yielding myself totally to the joy you hold out to me. Amen. ( a prayer from Jacqueline Syrup Bergman and S. Marie Schwan’s Taste and See.)

Scripture Lessons:      Acts 9:36-43

                                    Psalm 23 p.749 VU

                                    John 10:22-30

Hymn.       The Lord’s My Shepherd #747VU


Prayer: We give you thanks, Gentle One who has touched our soul. You have loved us from the moment of our first waking and have held us in joy and in grief. Stay with us, we pray. Grace us with your presence and with it, the fullness of our own humanity. Help us claim our strength and need, our awesomeness and fragile beauty, that encouraged by the truth we might work to restore compassion to the human family and renew the face of the earth. Amen. (a prayer from More Than Words by Janet Schaffran and Pat Kozak)
