OPENING PRAYER
Canticle of Covenant Faithfulness (based on Isaiah 55:6-11) UMH 125
Seek the Lord who now is present,
call upon the Lord, who is near,
let the wicked forsake their way,
and the unrighteous their thoughts;
let them return, that the Lord may have mercy on them;
that our God may abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and return not but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I intend,
and prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
 
OPENING HYMN
“Shema & Gadol Elohai (How Great is our God)” Lyric Video Joshua Aaron


READINGS FROM SCRIPTURE

Exodus 20:1-3, 7-8, 12-17 New Revised Standard Version
Then God spoke all these words:
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery;
you shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above,
or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth
You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God,
for the Lord will not acquit anyone who misuses God’s name.
Honor your father and your mother,
so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or female
slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.
Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy.

OUR LORD’S PRAYER, IN UNISION
Our Father/Mother/Creator, 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.

For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
