CALL TO WORSHIP
Let not your heart be troubled, ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house there are many mansions. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, 1 have overcome the world.
The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not want:
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green: He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.
My soul He doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
E'en for His own names sake.
Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill:
For Thou art with me, and they rod
And staff me comfort still.
My table Thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.
Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me,
And in God's house for evermore
My dwelling place shall be.
READING (Read by the Senior Roman Catholic)
Who then can ever keep Christ's love from us? When we have trouble or calamity, when we are hunted down or destroyed, is it because He doesn't love us anymore? And if we are hungry, or penniless, or in danger, or threatened with death, has God deserted us? No, for the Scriptures tell us that for His sake we must be ready to face death at every moment of the day - we are like sheep awaiting slaughter. But despite all this, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us. For 1 am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His love. Death can't, and life can't. The angels won't and all the powers of Hell itself cannot keep God's love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, or where we are -high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean - nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when He died for us.
Romans Ch. 8 vs 35-39
