Call to worship 

*Hymn 66 Praise My Soul the King of Heaven
1. Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
to the throne thy tribute bring.
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
evermore God’s praises sing.
Alleluia! alleluia!
Praise the everlasting King!

2. Praise the Lord for grace and favor
to all people in distress.
Praise God, still the same as ever,
slow to chide, and swift to bless.
Alleluia! alleluia!
Glorious now God’s faithfulness!

3. Fatherlike, God tends and spares us;
well our feeble frame God knows.
Motherlike God gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes.
Alleluia! alleluia!
Widely yet God’s mercy flows!

4. Angels, in the heights, adoring;
you behold God face to face;
Saints triumphant, now adoring
gathered in from every race.
Alleluia! alleluia!
Praise with us the God of grace!

The Right Hand Of God    
1. The right hand of God, is writing in our land,
Writing with power and with love.
Our conflicts and our fears,
Our triumphs and our tears,
Are recorded by the right hand of God.

2. The right hand of God, is pointing in our land,
Pointing the way we must go.
So clouded is the way, so easily we stray,
But we’re guided by the right hand of God.

3. The right hand of God is striking in our land,
Striking out at envy, hate and greed,
Our selfishness and lust, 
our pride and deeds unjust,
Are destroyed by the right hand of God

4. The right hand of God is lifting in our land
Lifting the fallen one by one
Each one is known by name and lifted now from shame
By the lifting of the right hand of God
WORDS: Patrick Prescod, 1973 MUSIC: Noel Dexter, 1973

Step by Step
O God, you are my God, 
and I will ever praise you 
O God, you are my God, 
and I will ever praise you
I will seek you in the morning, 
and I will learn to walk in your ways,
And step by step you’ll lead me,
And I will follow you all of my days.

Prayer Hymn 297 Beneath the Cross of Jesus
1 Beneath the cross of Jesus
I fain would take my stand,
the shadow of a mighty Rock
within a weary land;
a home within the wilderness,
a rest upon the way,
from the burning of the noontide heat
and the burden of the day.

2 Upon the cross of Jesus
mine eye at times can see
the very dying form of One
who suffered there for me:
and from my stricken heart with tears
two wonders I confess,
the wonders of redeeming love
and my unworthiness.
                     
3 I take, O cross, thy shadow
for my abiding place:
I ask no other sunshine than
the sunshine of his face;
content to let the world go by,
to know no gain nor loss;
my sinful self my only shame,
my glory all the cross.
WORDS: Elizabeth C. Clephane, 1872 MUSIC: Frederick C. Maker, 1881 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  Good Foolishness

*Hymn of sending forth 381 Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us            
1. Savior, like a shepherd lead us,
Much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us,
For our use Thy folds prepare:
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

2. We are Thine, Thou dost befriend us,
Be the guardian of our way;
Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us,
Seek us when we go astray:
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Hear, O hear us when we pray;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Hear, O hear us when we pray.

3. Thou hast promised to receive us,
Poor and sinful though we be;
Thou hast mercy to relieve us,
Grace to cleanse, and power to free:
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
We will early turn to Thee;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
We will early turn to Thee.

4. Early let us seek Thy favor,
Early let us do Thy will;
Blessed Lord and only Savior,
With Thy love our bosoms fill:
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still.
