A Simplified Order of Worship
September 13, 2020 Season of Creation - Land Sunday
Now Let us Be still. Be at peace. God is ready to give to us.
Here in this place in our needs.
the gift of healing for those in pain,
the gift of forgiveness for those in sin,
the gift of assurance for those in doubt,
the gift of hope for those in tears,
the gift of laughter for those full of joy-
Deep soil that nourishes our lives.
Creating God, we celebrate your vibrant presence among us and our kin in creation, especially in the soil and the land. May our spirits be lifted to rejoice with the land, the wild flowers, and all the creatures of the countryside. Amen.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever.
