Bless the Lord, O my soul.
O Lord my God, I stand in awe at your greatness.
Your being is clothed with honour and majesty and robed in light
You stretch out the heavens like a tent, making the winds your
and fire and flame your servants.
How great are your works, O God!
In your wisdom you created the earth and all that is within it.
In thanksgiving, we worship and praise the Lord our God.
awesome God, creator and source of all life, we worship and praise
you. Out of chaos and darkness you spoke the words which brought
order and light and life. We marvel at such evidence of your
greatness and glory. Yet, you laid these aside when you took on
human flesh in Jesus Christ. In him we gained a new understanding of
your power and glory, for he revealed through his life, that true
power is based on empowering others, and that glory is made visible
through loving and serving others. We marvel anew at the depth of
your care for us and the many ways our lives have been blessed by
the sacrificial life and love of Jesus in whose name we pray. Amen

is at present living on some scrap of paper in the bottom of a case
in someone else’s home, waiting for it’s moment? Humility is a
hallmark of those who would follow Jesus. Just make sure that what
God gives you to share doesn’t remain hidden.
Let your light
shine, your song be sung, your gift be offered, for the glory of God
and your neighbor’s good. Will the ushers come forward to receive
our tithes and offerings?
