Sunday, September 11, 2022, The First Sunday of Creation

 I put this together before the news of the Queen’s death, but I think it still is appropriate for this week. 

Hymn        Joyful Joyful We Adore You  #232

Scripture Lessons:      I Timothy 1:12-18

                                    Psalm 23 p.749VU
                                    Luke 15:1-10


Prayer:  Life is great
Full of glad surprises; 
Life is tough—
Stony paths we’ve trod! 
What makes sense
Each day sun arises:

God holds back
Venturing matures us;
God steps in
Giving strength to cope: 
God’s wise live
Gives the whole creation

God transforms 
through the gifts we’re given;
Leagued with him
We make the world anew: 
Justice, love mark
A way of life that’s true. 

Roll up sleeves
Use each life entrusted,
Take sure hold
Of transforming power: 
Work with God
Venturing to meet this
Hour. ( a poem/prayer by Ian M. Fraser and printed in the Iona Community’s Acorns and Archangels.)

Hymn       Amazing Grace #266

This Sunday’s services will be 9:30 in Franklin, 11:00 in Ormstown and in Howick at 11:00 with Debbie Beattie. 

Good news! Howick United Church’s elevator is back in working order! So don’t let the stairs keep you home. 

Please keep in mind the OHO Quilt Show taking place next weekend, September 16th and 17th from 10-4:00 in the Ormstown Curling Club. Tickets to enter cost $5 and the profits go to local charities. Lots of beautiful quilts etc. to see and a tearoom for chatting and visiting. Hoping to see you there! 

Howick United Church is holding a fundraising concert with Fieldstone Reverie and featuring Sammi Grace as well. Tickets are $20 and will be available shortly. The concert will start at 7pm October 15th. Proceeds of the concert will be split between Howick United Church and I Am Heshima, and there will be some items offered for sale that night.
