Call to Worship:                                                       Donna Hinch

L: It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most high;

C: to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,

L: to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.

C: For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

L: The righteous flourish like the palm tree, and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

C: They are planted in the house of the LORD; they flourish in the courts of our God.

L: In old age they still produce fruit; they are always green and full of sap,

C: showing that the LORD is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Opening Prayer:                                                      Donna Hinch

Almighty God, Holy One, our saviour and healer. Wake us up. Lift us into consciousness of your presence. Change us, move us, mold us for the better; so that, at the sound of your voice, at the call of our name, we will never be the same. May you do this as we worship you, so that we will never be the same. In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.
