Half-Truths: What the Bible DOESN’T say Series week 4
Invitation to Worship:
Leader: When God speaks, all creation answers:
All: and sing praises of love and adoration to the one who inspires
Leader: When God speaks, lives are changed:
All: each one, as God wills it, will have a new beginning
Leader: When God speaks, everything is turned inside out:
All: the wise learn the language of grace from little children and all learn the wisdom of God is forever.
Leader: When God speaks, we eagerly await his wisdom
All: We praise the God of Wisdom and Love, Amen.
Opening Prayer: by Thom Shuman
You do not want us to be ignorant of your dreams and hopes for us, God of holiness, so you speak to us, so we might pay careful attention to your words; you tell us stories about our grandparents in the faith, so we might become mentors to our grandchildren, and theirs.
Filling us with the holy oil of generosity and grace, you make us ready to welcome Jesus Christ into our lives, and to open our hearts to those who are in need.
On this day, we choose to serve you, God in Community, Holy in One, even as we pray as Jesus teaches us, Our Father. . .
Scripture: Matthew 5:17-20, 1 Corinthians 1:18-25
Message: “God Said It, I Believe It, That Settles It”
Theme: The Bible is the word of God. Does that mean that we follow every rule that is in there?
