Covenant God, Sometimes, when we can’t see, touch, or hear you, we wonder, “Are you really there?” Then we remember the many ways you have shown us your love and we see the many things that reveal your creative presence in our lives. We feel the love in a hug from our mom, dad, or friend; and we know that this is what your love must feel like. We see the stars shining in the sky above or watch the sunrise, and we are amazed by your beautiful work that makes these things possible.

Lord, during this week of our Lenten journey, help us find ways to remember that you are with us. We know that this is big work. Help us practice remembering as we get ready for the mystery of Easter. During this season, help us learn how to trust you, love you, and share your love with others.

Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, 
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
it is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.                                                                                         “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34-35

Hymn: “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” stanza 7, The United Methodist Hymnal, 211

All: O come, Desire of nations bind all peoples in one heart and mind.  From dust thou brought us forth to life; deliver us from earthly strife.

 Our souls magnify the Lord and our spirits rejoice in God for God has looked with favor on us, God’s servants.

God has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly. God has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty.

God of Justice, God of Peace, we open our hearts to you. Give us grace to be instruments of your righteousness.

Give us courage to turn away from distractions and distortions and turn toward the home you have made, are making, and will complete through Christ.

All: We, God’s people, sing songs of joy with the prophet, “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my whole being shall exult in my God.” (Isaiah 61:10, NRSV)

disperse the gloomy clouds of night, and death’s dark shadows put to flight.”

Reader 1: “The LORD has done great things for us, and we are overjoyed. … Let those who plant with tears reap the harvest with joyful shouts.” (Psalm 126:3, 5 CEB)

Reader 2: God of Joy, you enter the wilderness of our world and proclaim that there is a way to reach home again.

Reader 3: God of Joy, you break through clouds of despair and sorrow to bring good news to your people.

Reader 4: God of Joy, you send hope into the world in the form of a tiny baby.

All: We, God’s people, sing songs of joy with the prophet, “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my whole being shall exult in my God” (Isaiah 61:10, NRSV).

Reader: On this third Sunday of Advent, we light this candle, knowing that joy is our true home.Light three candles. If you have a pink candle, light it for the first time today.

Here, in this place, we discover the great things God has done.
In story and song, in silence and sacrament,
we are reminded that God’s relationship with us lasts forever.

Here, during this holy season, we hear those promises made so long ago.
Of the One who repairs all our mistakes,of the One who reshapes our brokenness.

14Sing aloud, O daughter Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter Jerusalem!15The LORD has taken away the judgments against you, he has turned away your enemies. The king of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall fear disaster no more.16On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands grow weak.17The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing18as on a day of festival. I will remove disaster from you, so that you will not bear reproach for it.19I will deal with all your oppressors at that time. And I will save the lameand gather the outcast, and I will change their shame into praiseand renown in all the earth.20At that time I will bring you home, at the time when I gather you; or I will make you renowned and praisedamong all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunesbefore your eyes, says the LORD.

SILENT PRAYER

Luke 3:10-18                                                                                           Rev. Boyle

10And the crowds asked [John the Baptist], “What then should we do?” 11In reply he said to them, “Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.” 12Even tax collectors came to be baptized, and they asked him, “Teacher, what should we do?” 13He said to them, “Collect no more than the amount prescribed for you.” 14Soldiers also asked him, “And we, what should we do?” He said to them, “Do not extort money from anyone by threats or false accusation, and be satisfied with your wages.”

15As the people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Messiah, 16John answered all of them by saying, “I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 17His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”

18So, with many other exhortations, he proclaimed the good news to the people.

MORNING MESSAGE                 So Many Questions                    Rev. Boyle

Nothing can trouble, nothing can frighten

Those who seek God will never go wanting.

Nothing can trouble, nothing can frighten

God alone fills us.

Second Sunday of Advent

Second Sunday of Advent (December 9, 2018)

In those days a fiery preacher from the desert came to tell the people:

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near!”

He is the one the prophet Isaiah spoke about when he said:

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:

    ‘Prepare the way of the Lord,

      make his paths straight.”

We light the second Advent candle in preparation for the coming of the Messiah,

 in anticipation of the fullness of God’s justice and righteousness,

 and remembering the call of John the Baptist

    to make paths straight,

    repent of our sin,

    and live holy lives devoted to God.

Light the candle

Come, Lord Jesus.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Amen.

Advent Week 1

First Sunday of Advent (December 2, 2018)

Keep awake! Be watchful!

The Son of Man is coming with great power and glory.

He shall judge the nations;

    they shall beat their swords into plowshares,

    nation shall not lift up sword against nation,

    neither shall they learn war anymore.

We light the first Advent candle reminding us that God’s promised Messiah

    will break into our time and space

    to teach us his ways

    that we may walk in his paths of righteousness and peace.

May we stay alert for his coming.

        Light the candle

Come, Lord Jesus.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Amen.
