Watch or go to 9:40
Including Song: TIS185, Alleluia, alleluia
We praise you God, Creator Lord.
For the glory of your whole creation.
You have placed our tiny blue ball in the infinity of stars and space,
and we are overwhelmed by the wonderful uniqueness of creation.
The beauty of our earth, the myriad shades of green in plants,
dusty orange of deserts, frozen white of the ice fields,
the liquid blue of oceans and rivers, gold of the sun and dark velvet of night.
Yet you are mindful of our small and insignificant lives and you sent us your Son.
You are the God of the Cosmos, and our Story.
We praise you, God, Incarnate Lord,
For the mystery of your word made flesh.
We praise you Incarnate Lord.
You lived, breathed, and loved as we do, and with arms open wide on the cross,
you have created a place for us, a new covenant with us, in bread and wine.
You are the embodiment of God’s Grace and love for the world.
We praise you God Comforter, Lord,
For the presence of your Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, Comforter
Since the Ascension we have been living with this new Covenant.
Encouraged in our faith through your faithfulness.
We thank you that although we no longer see Jesus face to face,
his Spirit moves, breathes and walks with us.
God with us.
We praise you God, The Three – in – One,
For the promise of your coming Kingdom
Holy Three in One.
We know how undeserving we are of your new Covenant,
yet you created a place for us in your heart.
Forgive us when we wander away from you and ignore the suffering we see in the world.
Forgive us when we are complacent and close our minds
to those who are different, in race, colour, gender or religion.
When we don’t care for our earth as we should,
and ignore the warnings our climate is giving us.
Forgive us for our lack of faith for following our own way, not yours,
and open us to this new relationship with you.
Open our eyes and hearts to love as you love.
Creator God, Jesus Saviour, Spirit Comforter.
With arms open wide You welcome us, we just have to reach out to you.
You have created a new Covenant for us through the love of our Saviour Jesus Christ,
and we know that our sin is forgiven.
Thanks be to God
