Prelude

 

*Call to Worship

L:  Quiet your minds, still your restlessness.

      Come before God.

P:  Like rustling leaves blowing in autumn wind,

      bright with color, deep when gathered,

      we fall into the presence of God.

 

Opening Prayer

O God of Creation, you have blessed us with the changing of the seasons.  Remind us to take time to rest.  Remind us of the wonder of your creation. Remind us that it is you that gives us the breath of life.  We pray for your guidance in a world that desperately needs to glimpse your presence and your glory.  We pray that today, your light might shine through us into the world.  Open our minds and hearts to your word.  Amen.

 

Psalter:    Psalms 103: 1-5 and 13-18

Praise the Lord, my soul;
    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits—

who forgives all your sins
    and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
    and crowns you with love and compassion,

who satisfies your desires with good things
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 13 As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 
for he knows how we are formed,
    he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
    they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 
the wind blows over it and it is gone,
    and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
    and remember to obey his precepts.
