Luke 9:51-62

But first

But first just

But first just let me…

just let me find one more reason

I can’t do

that which I really need

                              want

                                             to do

one more reason to avoid

               change

one more reason to know

               have

                              hold

                                             plan

                                                            control

               tomorrow

one more reason to lay my life

in my hands

and still say I trust you

               with my words

Jesus simply said

               follow me

Opening Litany based on Psalm 16

 

Worship Leader: Keep me safe, O God, for I have come to you for refuge.

Congregation: We said to the LORD, “You are our Master! Every good thing we have comes from you.” The godly people in the land are our heroes and we take pleasure in them!

Worship Leader: Troubles seem to multiply for those who chase after other gods.

Congregation: We will not take part in their sacrifices or pretend to follow in their ways for the LORD alone is our inheritance, our cup of blessing.

Worship Leader: You guard all that is ours. The land you have given us is a pleasant land and a wonderful inheritance!

Congregation: We will bless the LORD who guides us; even at night our hearts instruct us to follow the ways of the Lord. Therefore we know the LORD is always with us and we will not be shaken, for the Lord is right beside us at all times.

Worship Leader: No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. I rest in safety knowing the Lord walks with us and will not leave us to the powers of death.

Congregation: The Lord will show us the way of life, granting us joy of living in the presence of the Lord forever.

Luke 8: 26-39 Jesus heals a demon-possessed man

In this foreign land

Far across the lake

Where we find people of strange values

------ language

----------- ungodly ideas

We follow Jesus

And there encounter

As expected

One wild and filled with evil

As unexpected

And one loved by Jesus.

What have you to do with us

Jesus

Son of the Most High God?

As we remember

Who do people say I am

Who do you say I am

the disciples

And you and I stand

Not understanding what has just happened

As the many descend in uncleanness

into the depths of the chaos waters

we stand with the disciples in jaw dropping fear

That God’s love might

Just might

Extend

Even across the pond to the other side

Where the people react

As we react,

In fear of our bottom line

What is in it for me

And how do I measure

Economic effect

The cost

 

While the disciples

You and I

Still stand jaw dropped

The new evangelist

Gets to work in the Kingdom

Which just became visible

As near.

 

Opening Litany based on Psalm 22

 Worship Leader:  I will declare your name to my people O Lord and in the assembly I will praise you.

Worship Leader:  All the blessed of the earth will feast and worship, All mortals will bow before the Lord of all creation. 

Congregation: We will use the blessings of this world to serve, so that all future generations will know of the righteousness the Lord has done.

The Holy Trinity John 16:12-15

The Spirit comes silently into our hearts

bringing love

bringing life

and pointing to the one who brought us life

Jesus the Christ

The Living God

In our desires to be the center

and our desires to turn inward

wrapping ourselves up in ever smaller packages

fearing that if we are not the center

there will be no center

in our emptiness

longing to find that to which we can cling

The Spirit comes

and points to the Christ

the one who walked with us

the one who lived with us

the one who was us

and died like us

only to live and bring life

This is the one to whom the Spirit points

simply

quietly

that we may know God’s love for us

and burst forth in new life

new creation

Psalm 8

 Pastor: You have set your glory above the heavens. From the lips of children and infants you have brought forth praise which silences the foe and the avenger and calls us to live as one.

Congregation: When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what are we that you are mindful of us, who are we that you care for us? 

Pastor: You made humanity a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned us with glory and honor. You call us to lovingly care for the works of your hands and lay all that we have at Your feet O Lord.

Congregation: You call us to care for all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, and all that swims the paths of the seas. We will therefore lovingly care for this world you have created for us.

6th Sunday of Easter John 14:23-29

She ran in the door smiling

covered with mud

in little splotches here and there

with a smile of love

plastered amid the streaks of dirt

just smiling

and that was enough

it said love

with no agendas

---- strings

-------- ifs

it just said love

and that was enough for the whole world

in that moment

just love

Christ’s Spirit is here

to guide us

---- love

to gently nudge this way and that

---- love

so that as we stand before God

amid our smudged and streaked hands

and faces

the God and Creator of all

sees only the smile

---- love

of Christ

John 10:22-30 4th Sunday of Easter

Questions have a way of framing the answer

--(how long?)

of saying

--only these possibilities exist

Within the framework of my mind

--And thought   

----And expectation

How long?

--(tell us plainly Lord)

How long before what I expect to happen

--will happen?

Never is the answer

--And Now

Never and Now

--before I hear His voice

Never and Now

--before I am shown the way

Never and Now

--before I hear the words

--already spoken

His sheep will follow

--Because they hear

His sheep will follow

--Because they know

His sheep will follow

--on to new life

--and love

many will not

they are too busy framing the question

to hear the answer

3rd Sunday of Easter John 21:1-19

It was OK to follow

schlepping around the Galilean country side

doing what we were told

watching every move Jesus made

feeling the excitement

We had it made in a way

connected to something bigger than ourselves

preparing the way for the kingdom

In our own way we had it made

and then

then he was gone

Oh sure there was the resurrection

and the time spent with us

and the day of Pentecost

and then

then the spotlight went off

the houselights came up

and there we were

Party over

Now what?

Back to the same old

fade into the countryside

disappear

take life easy

and forget about that night

and the rooster crowing

 

Feed my sheep!

Feed my sheep!

Feed my sheep!

Be made whole again

and go into the whole world

which is not

and never will be

the same again

No longer centre stage

but streets and byways

Find the sheep

and feed them

 


Psalm 30

Congregation: I will exalt you, LORD, for you rescued me and refused to let my enemies and fears triumph over me. I cried to you for help, and you restored me, you brought me up from the depths and kept me from falling even deeper.


Worship Leader: Therefore sing to the LORD, all you godly ones! Praise the Lord’s holy name for though there may be anger at our deeds and lack of belief, the Lord’s favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning light.

Congregation: When I was prosperous, I said, “Nothing can stop me now!” In my pride I claimed your favor O LORD, and felt it made me as secure as a mountain. Because of my arrogance you turned away from me, and I was shattered.

Worship Leader: We cried out to you, O LORD and begged for mercy, saying, “What will you gain if we die and sink into the grave? Can our dust praise you or tell of your faithfulness? In our despair, we finally turned from our pride to your love and cried out, hear us, O LORD, and have mercy on us, Help us, O LORD, for we turn now to you.

The psalm ends with: (Mourning into Dancing)

You've turned my mourning into dancing again, You've lifted my sorrows
I can't stay silent I must sing For Your joy has come

Where there once was only hurt, you gave Your healing hand
Where there once was only pain you've brought comfort Like a friend
And I feel the sweetness of your love Piercing my darkness
And I see the bright and morning sun
As it ushers in your joyful gladness

You've turned my mourning into dancing again you've lifted my sorrows
And I can't stay silent I must sing For your joy has come

I sit in darkness

late at night

the kids are asleep

quiet now

oblivious to the adult world

--as we have made it

of war and hate

and children very much like themselves

loved very much like themselves

without enough

--of their share

--to survive

I want to venture out

To help in this world

--of too much

----and not enough

but I often find myself

----------hiding

here in the darkness

----------comfort

-------------safety

of my own walls

when

--into this sanctuary

--of my

------awareness fear

comes a voice

----(peace)

of disturbing comfort

that seeks to destroy

------------my little kingdom

-------of what

--------------can

------------------I

--------------------do

-----------------------anyway walls

I am heralded again

----(peace)

from that voice of life

----(be with you)

I long to

--but wish not

peace

in the midst of your world

and because of it

as the words still ring

------in my mind

I remember the one who came

To make all things new

And I long

--for that contact

that would take me by the hand

and lead me

--down the path of what will be

----(as the Father sent me)

somehow to show

--that Christ lives

------and myself

Help me Lord to do thy will

The Resurrection of our Lord Luke 24:1-11

In the Spring

I would come out to that place

with the stream flowing

fast clear through the narrows

of the mud

and snow choked hills

The sun would shine warm

and send light bouncing off the water

as it flowed

through the mud

and snow

the sun’s rays felt good

on my ice cold hands

as I enjoyed the beauty

of new life beginning

 

In the beginning God created all

and it was good

From nothingness came good

and beauty

and joy

tarnished by the desire of us all

to be gods

to run our little dominion

And we did

And we died

And Christ came

in our self appointed winter

confined not to the cold

and dead dungeons of our world

and sprang forth in light and life

to a world made new

As in the beginning

where life

in the midst of our dungeons

burst forth

sparkling in the waters that flow

through the mud and snow clogged narrows

of our soul

To bring us

Life

Sunday of Passion Luke 22:1-23:56

 Hosanna!  Hosanna!

to the one who comes in the name of the Lord

Hosanna to the one who comes to save us

we rejoice

yet sorrow that this one

the Song of God

the Lord most High

has come to this world

in which each one of us dips our bread

with this one

the Churst

and in this act of oneness

of family

we bring death

to our Lord

to our selves

we are all there shouting

Hosanna!

and Crucify Him!

in thought, word and deed

by what we have done

and by what we have left undone

yet not rejected, but loved

by the one we hung on the cross

Hosanna!

Psalm 31:9-16

Pastor: Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief

Congregation: My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction, and my bones grow weak. 

Pastor: Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors; I am a dread to my friends— those who see me on the street flee from me. 

Congregation: I am forgotten by them as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery. For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me and plot to take my life.

Pastor: But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, "You are my God." My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.

Congregation: Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.

John 12: 1-8 5th Sunday in Lent

In the midst of time spent together

Aroma filled the air

The sweetness drifting into every corner

Filling every nostril and lung

And out into the world.

Wasteful!

Just imagine what we

(I)

could do with that

for a slight fee for handling

all legit of course

I could help some people

And you will

Those in need

The least, lost and lonely

Will be there always

The simple creation of our greed

But their care is less about helping them overcome our greed

And more about our need

To worship

In praise and deed

Worship drives us to the streets

Where the justice work drives us back to worship

And the streets

And worship

Round and round until they blur into one

And the sweet fragrance once again fills the air

 

 

 

 

Psalm 126

Worship Leader: When my life changed, when God came into my life and turned it around, I was like one who had just entered a dream. 

Congregation: When our lives were changed, when we allowed God in, we could not stop from laughing; our very being was filled with joy. 

Worship Leader: Our friends looked at us and knew something was different.  Those who knew us well and who knew the Lord said, the Lord has done great thing for them, and together we rejoiced. 

Congregation: Restore our ways O Lord; direct our lives to the paths you have chosen.  Like a river in spring, may your blessings fill to the brim the blessings of your presence in our lives.

Worship Leader: May those still in sorrow experience shouts of joy.

Congregation: May those who go into the world in sorrow be filled with your love and bring that fruit of your blessing home to friends and family.

4th Sunday in Lent Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32

Rejoice

let the trumpets sound in the heavens

Rejoice

at the return of the one lost

don’t ask at the why

or where

for this one was gone

lost in the gods of this world

sucked down

and running all the way

on his own

until by the gift of God

the bottom was seen

the momentum was stopped

and the face turned

Rejoice

not at what has been

but what will be

for the one who was lost

has been snatched from the jaws of death

by the God of love

Rejoice

Opening Litany, Psalm 32

 Pastor: Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed I say is the one whose sin the LORD does not count and in whose spirit is no deceit.

Congregation: When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me and my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD "— and you forgave the guilt of my sin.

Pastor: Therefore let everyone who is Godly pray while you may be found; for surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not cause harm.

Congregation: You are our hiding place O Lord and you will protect us from trouble and surround our lives with songs of deliverance.

Pastor: I will instruct you and teach you in the way of the Lord, I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Live free, knowing you are a forgiven child of God.

Congregation: When we lose sight of You O Lord many are our woes. But the LORD's unfailing love surrounds all who trusts in the Lord. Therefore we will Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, we will sing and praise the Lord’s name with an upright heart!
