*Hymn 111 How Can a Name We Love  ccli #242496
1 How can we name a Love
that wakens heart and mind,
indwelling all we know
or think or do or seek or find?
Within our daily world,
in every human face,
Love's echoes sound and God is found,
hid in the commonplace.

2 If we awoke to life
Built on a rock of care
that asked no great reward
but firm, assured, was simply there,
we can, with parents' names,
describe, and thus adore,
Love unconfined, a father kind,
a mother strong and sure.

3 When people share a task,
and strength and skills unite
in projects old or new,
to make or do with shared delight,
our Friend and Partner's will
is better understood,
that all should share, create, and care,
and know that life is good.

4 So in a hundred names,
each day we all can meet
a presence, sensed and shown
at work, at home, or in the street.
Yet every name we see 
shines in a brighter sun:
In Christ alone is Love full grown
and life and hope begun.
WORDS: Brian Wren, 1973 MUSIC: Trad. English melody; adapt. by Franklin L. Sheppard, 1915 ccli #242496

Children’s Time

*Hymn 179 O Sing a Song of Bethlehem  ccli #242496
1 O sing a song of Bethlehem,
Of shepherds watching there,
And of the news that came to them 
From angels in the air.
The light that shone on Bethlehem
Fills all the world today;
Of Jesus' birth and peace on earth
The angels sing alway.

2 O sing a song of Nazareth,
Of sunny days of joy,
O sing of fragrant flowers' breath,
And of the sinless Boy:
For now the flowers of Nazareth
In every heart may grow;
Now spreads the fame of his dear name
On all the winds that blow.

3 O sing a song of Galilee,
Of lake and woods and hill,
Of him who walked upon the sea
And bade the waves be still:
For though, like waves on Galilee,
Dark seas of trouble roll,
When faith has heard the Master's word,
Falls peace upon the soul.

4 O sing a song of Calvary,
Its glory and dismay;
Of him who hung upon the tree,
And took our sins away.
For he who died on Calvary
Is risen from the grave,
And Christ, our Lord, by heaven adored,
Is mighty now to save.

WORDS: Louis F. Benson, 1889 MUSIC: English melody; arr. by Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1906 ccli #242496

Prayer Hymn 298 When I Survey the Wondrous Cross ccli #242496
1 When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of Glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride. 

2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast
save in the death of Christ, my God;
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to his blood.

3 See, from his head, his hands, his feet,
sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet,
or thorns compose so rich a crown?

4 Were the whole realm of nature mine,
that were an offering far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
demands my soul, my life, my all.   
WORDS: Isaac Watts, 1707 MUSIC: Lowell Mason, 1824 ccli #242496

Pastoral prayer and Lord’s Prayer 

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven:
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, 
For ever and ever. Amen.

Sermon: Do not be afraid

Hymn of Preparation 165 Hallelujah! What a Savio
1 Man of Sorrows! what a name
for the Son of God, who came
ruined sinners to reclaim:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

2 Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
in my place condemned he stood;
sealed my pardon with his blood:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

3 Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
spotless Lamb of God was he,
Full atonement can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

4 Lifted up was he to die;
"It is finished" was his cry;
now in heaven exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

5 When he comes, our glorious King,
all his ransomed home to bring,
then anew this song we'll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior! 
WORDS: Philip P. Bliss, 1875 MUSIC: Philip P. Bliss, 1875

The Great Thanksgiving For World Communion Sunday

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Lift up your hearts. 
We lift them up to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
It is right to give our thanks and praise.

It is right, and a good and joyful thing,
always and everywhere to give thanks to you,
Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
You have made from one every nation and people
to live on all the face of the earth.

And so, with your people on earth and all the company of heaven
we praise your name and join their unending hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Holy are you, and blessed is your Son Jesus Christ.
By the baptism of his suffering, death, and resurrection
you gave birth to your Church,
delivered us from slavery to sin and death,
and made with us a new covenant by water and the Spirit.
He commissioned us to be his witnesses to the ends of the earth
and to make disciples of all nations,
and today his family in all the world is joining at his holy table.

On the night in which he gave himself up for us, he took bread,
gave thanks to you, broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said:
"Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.”

When the supper was over he took the cup,
gave thanks to you, gave it to his disciples, and said:
"Drink from this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant,
poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ,
we offer ourselves in praise and thanksgiving
as a holy and living sacrifice, in union with Christ's offering for us,
as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.

Pour out your Holy Spirit on us gathered here, and on these gifts of bread and wine. Make them be for us the body and blood of Christ,
that we may be for the world the body of Christ, redeemed by his blood.
Renew our communion with your Church throughout the world,
and strengthen it in every nation and among every people
to witness faithfully in your name. By your Spirit make us one with Christ,
one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world,
until Christ comes in final victory, and we feast at his heavenly banquet. 

Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church,
all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, now and for ever.

Amen

Please partake at home in prayer and mediation.

*Hymn of sending forth 190 Who is He in Yonder Stall ccli #242496
1 Who is he in yonder stall, 
at whose feet the shepherds fall?

Tis the Lord, O wondrous story! 
'Tis the Lord, the King of glory! 
At his feet we humbly fall, 
crown him, crown him, Lord of all!

2 Lo, at midnight who is he
Prays in dark Gethsemane?

Tis the Lord, O wondrous story! 
'Tis the Lord, the King of glory! 
At his feet we humbly fall, 
crown him, crown him, Lord of all!

3 Who is he in Calvary’s throes
Asks for blessings on his foes? 

Tis the Lord, O wondrous story! 
'Tis the Lord, the King of glory! 
At his feet we humbly fall, 
crown him, crown him, Lord of all!

4 Who is he that from the grave 
comes to heal and help and save?

Tis the Lord, O wondrous story! 
'Tis the Lord, the King of glory! 
At his feet we humbly fall, 
crown him, crown him, Lord of all!

5 Who is he that from yon throne 
rules the world of light alone?

Tis the Lord, O wondrous story! 
'Tis the Lord, the King of glory! 
At his feet we humbly fall, 
crown him, crown him, Lord of all!
