Worship @ Home on Wednesday  9.9.20

Here is an outline of our Worship @ Home on Wednesday which you can use on your own or with other people who are in your household.

In our Worship @ Home we are focusing on the idea of journeys and pilgrimage and we think about churches, cathedrals or places of pilgrimage we have visited over the years. We have been thinking about cathedrals and churches and places of pilgrimage and  how the walking and what people see and think and hear and pray along the way is just as important as reaching a destination. During the summer months our own church is often open as a place for people to visit , to stop and reflect and pray. We open to welcome people coming to our town on cruise ships and we often, at the beginning of September, take part in the Open Doors events. Today and over the next few Wednesdays , you are invited to think of the church you call your home church as a place of pilgrimage and to remember different parts of the building, as though you were stopping there for a moment to read a bible verse and offer a prayer

Lectern and Pulpit  – think about how many words have been said from these places. Reflect on times you have felt God speaking to you through the words read from the bible or words spoken in worship. God always invites us to listen, to seek God’s still small voice

Isaiah 55: 3, 6

Give ear and come to me; listen that you may live …. Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near

Prayer – God, keep on speaking to us and help us to listen and to act. Amen

Windows –  God communicates in words and also in images . Think of the stained glass , the images of the windows and the way the light filters through them. The light, revealing beauty and colour, helps us to see things differently. The Bible often speaks of God’s presence as light, a brightness that illuminates, guides and inspires.

John 8 : 12

Jesus said ‘ I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’

Prayer – God, be my light today, guide me and inspire me. Let me see clearly and show me the way ahead. Amen

Blessing

May God’s love enfold you,

May God’s strength uphold you,

May God’s light shine upon you

And may God’s peace surround you

Amen
