November 8, 2020 (In-person Congregational Meeting)

Welcome to Trinity’s online worship service!  The liturgy has been adapted for online use and some hymns have been eliminated to streamline the online service.  We are so glad you chose to join us for virtual worship, and we’d be very excited if you chose to join us in-person on Sunday’s at 10 am in the Nave.
If you are able please consider an offering for God’s work in the world: Tithely
1 Lord of all nations, grant me grace
to love all people, ev’ry race;
and in each person may I see
my kindred, loved, redeemed by thee.

2 Break down the wall that would divide
thy children, Lord, on ev’ry side.
My neighbor’s good let me pursue;
let Christian love bind warm and true.
3 Forgive me, Lord, where I have erred
by loveless act and thoughtless word.
Make me to see the wrong I do
will crucify my Lord anew.
Kyrie/Hymn of Praise from All Things New by N. Carroll:
First Lesson: Amos 5:18-24
Psalm 70
Second Lesson: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Gospel Acclamation from All Things New by N. Carroll:
Hymn of the Day: Let Justice Flow Like Streams ELW #717

1 Let justice flow like streams
of sparkling water, pure,
enabling growth, refreshing life,
abundant, cleansing, sure.

2 Let righteousness roll on
as others’ cares we heed,
an everflowing stream of faith
translated into deed.

3 So may God’s plumb line, straight,
define our measure true,
and justice, right, and peace pervade
this world our whole life through.

Prayers of Intercession and Lord’s Prayer:
1 The right hand of God
is writing in our land,
writing with power and with love,
our conflicts and our fears,
our triumphs and our tears
are recorded by the right hand of God.
2 The right hand of God
is pointing in our land,
pointing the way…we must go,
so clouded is the way,
so easily we stray,
but we’re guided by the right hand of God.

3 The right hand of God
is striking in our land,
striking out at envy, hate, and greed.
Our selfishness and lust,
our pride and deeds unjust
are destroyed by the right hand of God. 

4 The right hand of God
is healing in our land,
healing broken bodies, minds, and souls,
so wondrous is its touch
with love that means so much,
when we’re healed by the right hand of God.
We honor those who have served from our congregation and all other veterans:
