Listening for God

Scripture

~ Isaiah 56: 1-8 ~

Thus says the Lord: Maintain justice, and do what is right, for soon my salvation will come, and my deliverance be revealed. Happy is the mortal who does this, the one who holds it fast, who keeps the sabbath, not profaning it, and refrains from doing any evil. Do not let the foreigner joined to the Lord say, “The Lord will surely separate me from his people”; and do not let the eunuch say, “I am just a dry tree.” For thus says the Lord: To the eunuchs who keep my sabbaths, who choose the things that please me and hold fast my covenant, I will give, in my house and within my walls, a monument and a name better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off. And the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to him, to love the name of the Lord, and to be his servants, all who keep the sabbath, and do not profane it, and hold fast my covenant— these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. Thus says the Lord God, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, I will gather others to them besides those already gathered.

We Carry God’s Light Into the World God Loves

Hymn: “Restless Weaver”

CCLI license #11038266

Restless Weaver, ever spinning threads of justice and shalom.

Dreaming patterns of creation where all creatures find a home.

Gathering up life’s varied fibers – every texture, every hue.

Grant us your creative vision. With us weave your world anew.

Restless Weaver, still conceiving new life – now and yet to be.

Binding all your vast creation in one living tapestry.

You have called us to be weavers. Let your love guide all we do.

With your Reign of Peace our pattern, we will weave your world anew.

Blessing for Departing

Closing Song: “In the Midst of New Dimensions”

391 (NCH) CCLI license #11038266

In the midst of new dimensions, in the face of changing ways,

who will lead the pilgrim peoples wandering their separate ways?

God of rainbow, fiery pillar, leading where the eagles soar,

we your people, ours the journey, now & ever, now & ever, now & evermore.

Postlude

You are invited to spend a few minutes in quiet reflection & allow the music to wash over you.
