Sunday 5th July - Songs with Roots
Today we begin our new series looking at the Psalms - 'Summer in Song'. One of the regulations for meeting back for worship is that we can't sing, which is one of the reasons for not rushing back. However, we can sing as loud as we want at home. You might want to dig deep into the Psalms this summer and perhaps search for new songs that proclaim these words in new ways (or even write your own?).
After the service we will meet for coffee on zoom where we will have a bit of a discussion around thoughts for opening up and we will have a chance to share what all of us are thinking right now. The link is here
Psalm 100 https://youtu.be/7yC1KdAAv-k
Here are some songs for worship - you might want to save a couple for either side of the sermon
Here are some people introducing us to Psalm 1
Whose advice are you taking?
If you want to answer this further you could make a list of advice for those who are trying to follow in God's path. Perhaps some Golden Rules for followers of Christ. Turn them into a poster or your own video and you could share them with the church on WhatsApp or on zoom after the service.
Our prayers today are led by Nicole and Augustine
Our Sermon today is based on Psalm 1 and is brought by our minister, Claire
In the name of the God be blessed
In the seasons of plenty may you thrive and grow.
In the seasons of drought may you consolidate your strength.
May you delight in the warm sun of God shining upon you.
May you delight in the cold rain of God falling on you.
May you blossom to the glory of God
and make the world a more fragrant place.
May you give shelter to those who seek refuge from storm or fierce heat.
May you never forget whose tree you really are and whose life you share.
Be a blessing
