“Psalm 141” 


In a season when answers don’t come easily,
when questions and doubts, concerns and fears abound,
we gather with each other to hear a word of promise. 

God, our creator and sustainer,
delights in our curiosity,
calls forth our questions,
and embraces our doubts, no matter what.

(beat of silence)

In a world with enough for all, 
we remember that many lack enough to eat, 
live paycheck to paycheck, or long for meaningful work.

Why, O Lord?

As you call your people and this planet to peace and wholeness, 
we see communities in conflict and the countless costs of war. 

Why, O Lord?

We share the same world, the same streets, the same air,
but we appear to be more divided than ever.

Why, O Lord?

With our questions, with our fears, 
God answers with a better way, 
a way of love and harmony,
a way of Jesus. 

Surrounded by this community of friends, 
we follow the way of Jesus into God’s promises
of wholeness and hope that are unfolding before us, 
one step at a time.

“A Gaelic Blessing”

The Lord Almighty grant us a quiet night and peace at the last. Amen.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praise to your name, O most high, to herald your love in the morning, your truth at the close of the day. Amen.
