CONSECRATION SUNDAY MOMENT McKenna Golden & Amanda Gravholt

RITUAL OF FRIENDSHIP (Please leave complete address)


We’re gathered to worship, giving God thanks for a new day.

      God, send your Spirit, send your word.

       Fill us with hope and wonder and praise.

   Fill us with grace and peace and light,

Do you have a word for us, O God? We are listening!

Then let us lift our voices in song and praise for God’s forgiving love.


*HYMN OF PRAISE #110 (UM hymnal) “Almighty Fortress Is Our God”

LITANY “Our Heart’s Desire”

 O Lord, we are like those who dream, but we are not bound by any spell;

      We are not chasing a wild fantasy, but dwelling amidst our heart’s desire.

       Yesterday we lamented;

   Today we laugh.

Yesterday we moaned;

Today we shout.

Yesterday we wept in grief;

Today we weep in gratitude.

Yesterday we doubted you;

Today you lead us home.

Yesterday our step was a drunken stagger;

Today our path is straight in stride.

Yesterday we had met our end;

Today we have begun again.

O Lord, we are like those who dream:

We have received our heart’s desire.

For you have visited our despair, and we have embraced our joy. It is you

whom we have sought; it is we whom you have found!
