[CWM] Second Sunday After Pentecost: Mental Health Sunday [2008-05-25]

Moment of Meditation

Meditation on the Greek in Luke 6:6-11

Dear Jesus,

Your heartbeat throbs in my best;
It is your blood that forces through my veins;
Your breath gives my lungs ease and strength!

At this moment, you enjoin me:
"Stretch yourself; let go of the most terrible of sickness.
Stand outright in the immediacy of the universe's resurrection!"

We together are reconciling the trauma of the past,
Calling death to life, we proclaim the world's healing process as
God helps us all encourage creation onward. Amen!



Opening Hymn: "Praise to Our God"

Beth did the Children's Time even though the Grenfell's were away, since she had prepared one.

Benediction and Grace

We started about on time and service only went about an hour. I think I left around seven p.m. (and everything was mostly cleaned up at that point).
