Season after Pentecost, 2023
I found this draft of a liturgy stuck in my Presbyterian Hymnal Companion. It's dated September 22, 2002 (the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time).
It's like my very own predestined time capsule!
The names of the innocent have been removed. The definite article has not.
THE WELCOME THE CHIMES THE PRELUDE THE PREPARATION Welcome! The prophet Isaiah reminds us that "those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint" (40:31). Let us claim that wonderful promise as we present ourselves humble before God. ...IN PRAISE AND CONFESSION... THE CHRIST CANDLE** THE PROCESSIONAL * HYMN NO.492 Bunessan "BAPTIZED IN WATER" THE CALL TO WORSHIP One: Come to the fountain of life. All: Come to the streams of mercy. One: Come, dip in the reservoir of forgiveness, All: Immerse yourself in the waters of healing. One: Come, be renewed by the eternal springs., All: Be filled with overflowing blessing. One: Come, walk beside still waters, All: Be empowered by the rivers of justice. One: Come, all you yearning for meaning, hoping for truth, thirsting for God. All: Here, find your thirst quenched and your joy expanded. * THE PASSING OF THE PEACE ANNOUNCEMENTS THE CHORAL INTERLUDE THE PRAYER CONFESSION Loving Jesus, strong Shepherd, your love for us reaches from the cradle to the grave. there is no place or time or situation in which we are cut off from your care. Remind us of that love whenever we doubt our own worth, forget our blessing in baptism or act out of fear or anger. Forgive us for finding life boring or predictable, filled with routine and sameness when you have placed us in a garden. Turn our world upside down occasionally and surprise us with grace and joy. Keep us forever amazed at your love. You restore our souls and lead us to the house of love. Amen. THE ASSURANCE OF GOD'S PARDON Leader: Jesus gave the most extravagant gift of all -- the offering of himself for us. Through this selfless gift, we are set free, and our sins are forgiven.
