our worship on this day with a Psalm attributed to King
David. The version of the Bible from which I will read may
sound a bit strange at points, for it comes from the land
"down under." Some of the landmarks and creatures
mentioned are peculiar to Australia, a country some of our
youth have dreamed of visiting. Allow the words, which
originally flowed out of yet another foreign country and
language, and a time very different from our own, draw you
to our God who is greater than political and cultural and
all other human-made boundaries. Listen and worship.
LORD God, like your angels in

We give you a huge wrap, LORD;
........we put up you name in lights
........and hold a huge ticker tape
........but it still falls short of the
worship you deserve.
Your voice, LORD, rings out like thunder;

Your voice, LORD, shatters the Ironbark tree,

The sound of your voice convulses the wilderness;

Give strength to your people, LORD!

& Song for Children
Led by our
advocate for this year's special offering project for Heifer
International, the rest of the children will go in search of one
of their number who will be hiding somewhere in the congregation.
Along the way, we'll all sing "The Little Lost Sheep"
(tune "The wheels on the bus")
The little lost sheep cries, "baa, baa, baa." (3x)..
The little lost sheep cries, "baa, baa, baa," all thru
The shepherd in the field shouts, "where are you?"
The shepherd in the field shouts, "where are you?" all
thru the night
(repeat first verse)
The shepherd in the field shouts, "There you are!"
The shepherd in the field shouts, "There you are!" all
thru the night.
from our Witness Commission will them bring our month-long focus
to a close by inviting people to give to Heifer International.

the children’s book, Faith the Cow, the story of Heifer
International began when an Ohio farmer responded to God’s
call by saying, "Have faith, Dan West." When he told the
founder of Heifer Project this, Virgil Mock meant, "Have my
cow named ‘Faith.’" But behind that gift was faith in
God, as well as "Hope" (the name of the second heifer)
and "Charity" (the name of the third). May faith, hope,
and charity be behind every gift we share!
Will the ushers
please come forward to receive what we have to share. And as the
plates are passed, would you also fill in and pass the attendance
booklets found at the center aisle of each pew. Thank you.
A time to
celebrate a significant milestone for persons in our congregation.
Each will be given an opportunity to share where their life's path
is leading at the moment.
