“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” ~Barack Obama

GREETING Nancy Lucid
PSALM 1 Ellen Cook
Happiness comes to those who reject the paths of violence, who refuse to associate with the abusive and those who belittle others.
Happiness comes to those who delight in God’s Law and meditate on it day and night.
For they are like trees planted by flowing water
They bear fruit in every season and their leaves never wither. Everything they do will prosper.

SCRIPTURE Deuteronomy 34:1-12 Nancy Lucid
HYMN #434 Today We All Are Called to Be Disciples vs, 1, 3, & 4
With Gwen and Terry Duffy
Today we all are called to be disciples of the Lord,
To help to set the captive free, make plowshare out of sword,
To feed the hungry, quench their thirst, make love and peace our fast,
To serve the poor and homeless first, our ease and comfort last.
Pray justice may come rolling down as in a might stream,
With righteousness in field and town to cleanse us and redeem.
For God is longing to restore an earth where conflicts cease,
A world that was created for a harmony of peace.
May we in service to our God act out the living Word,
And walk the road the saints have trod till all have seen and heard.
As stewards of the earth may we give thinks in one accord
To God who calls us all to be disciples of the Lord.
