Hymn      Unto the Hills #842VU

Prayer:  Creator God, from quark to planet your universe is awesome. 
Give us eyes to gape at the wonders daily about us, 
And the will to live in the harmony of your creating. 
Help us to recognize and honour the connections of all things, 
Even at cost to our own wants and comforts; 
So we may live gently on earth, 
And all creation praise you. ( a prayer by Chris Polhill and published in the Iona Community’s Lenten worship resource, Eggs and Ashes, edited by Ruth Burgess and Chris Polhill)

Scripture Lessons:   Genesis 12:1-4

                                 Psalm 121 p.842VU

                                 John 3:1-17


Prayer:  By the prayers of Jesus, Lord teach us how to pray. 
By the gifts of Jesus, Lord, teach us how to give. 
By the the toils of Jesus, Lord, teach us how to work. 
By the love of Jesus, Lord, teach us how to love. 
By the cross of Jesus, Lord, teach us how to live. Amen. (printed in Frank Colquhoun’s Contemporary Parish Prayers)
