Offerings our Gifts/Remembering God’s Gifts

(Instead of passing our offering plates during worship, they will remain in the back for you to share your monetary donation before or after the service.  At this time, our usher will bring up the gifts we have shared as we share in a moment of silence and prayer of gratitude, for the financial gifts shared for the work of the church as well as the time and talents we share for the church and our greater community).   

Hymn 819. “For the Life that You Have Given” 

Scripture.  James 5:13-16,  Mark 9:38-50.   Olga Pirone 

Sermon   “A Wideness in God’s Mercy”

Hymn. “There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy”

There’s a wideness in God’s mercy,

like the wideness of the sea.

There’s a kindness in God’s justice,

which is more than liberty.

There is welcome for the sinner,

and more graces for the good.

There is mercy with the Savior,

there is healing in his blood.

But we make God’s love too narrow

by false limits of our own,

and we magnify its strictness

with a zeal God will not own.

For the love of God is broader

than the measures of the mind,

and the heart of the Eternal

is most wonderfully kind.

If our love were but more simple,

we should rest upon God’s word,

and our lives would be illumined

by the presence of our Lord.

Benediction
