Land Acknowledgement


Scripture: Psalm 36:5-10



Call to Worship (from Psalm 36)

God’s steadfast love extends to the heavens.
How precious is God’s steadfast love.
God’s faithfulness rises to the clouds.
How precious is God’s steadfast love.
God’s righteousness is like the mighty mountains.
How precious is God’s steadfast love.
We take refuge in the shadow of God’s wings.
How precious is God’s steadfast love.
We will feast on the abundance from God.
How precious is God’s steadfast love.
We will drink from the river of God’s delights.
How precious is God’s steadfast love.

Sharing Joys and Concerns

Congregational Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer (Voices Together #989 B, using “sins” instead of “trespasses.”)

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
