Scripture Cuttings:
Isaiah 62:1-5 …and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give.
Psalm 36:5-10 O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart!
1 Corinthians 12:1-11 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.
John 2:1-11 Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee,
and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

P:  In the Name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen

P:  Our God desires a strong relationship with us.
Let us reverse our resistance to the Lord. (pause for self-examination)

P:  Mighty Lord...
C: you give us great variety:
in ability, style, age, race, even gender,
  but we still don’t see difference as a gift.
Instead we act selfishly insisting on our own way.
  We know the best way, the right way.
    and so we become drunk with self - right - ness,
      and can not taste the holy righteousness you provide.
Your abundance is spilling forth
  while we squander your gifts
    by protecting our own.
Forgive us the sins we choose.
Save us from the sins we let choose us.
(Pause for reflection)
P:  God is dying to reveal love and glory. God’s son Jesus Christ has died for our sake so that we might know our sins are forgiven. We are invited into an intimate relationship with God. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we may live in the forgivenes so generously poured upon us. 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!
