Sermon Title: "4 out of 5 Experts tell us...."
Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31 Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice?
Psalm 8 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Romans 5:1-5 ...God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
John 16:12-15 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth.
All may make the sign of the cross in remembrance of baptism
as the presiding minister begins:
P: In the Name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
P: Let us choose the wise way and turn our hearts to the Lord.
(pause for self-examination)
P: Almighty God...
C: you are the God that makes us,
and makes the world that surrounds and sustains us.
But we think we can do better.
We push our bodies beyond your boundaries.
We take from the earth more than we give.
Our morality is on the loose- your wisdom is lost.
We offer only whining for suffering,
and can not endure hardship.
We loose hope, even in you.
Forgive the sins we surface before you.
Save us from the sins we keep suppressed.
(Pause for reflection)
P: Our Lord is dying to save us. The Heavenly Father reveals grace in the Son Jesus Christ. Through Christ our sins are forgiven. The Father sends the Holy Spirit, who pours God's love into our hearts. We may hope again, and endure, even in our sufferings. All to the glory of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen. -wjw
P: The peace of the Lord be with you always!
C: And also with you!
