Prayer for peace: Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is peace; Where the Spirit of the
Lord is, there is love. There is comfort in life’s darkest hour; There is light and life, there
is help and power In the Spirit, in the Spirit of the Lord.
Prayer for Illumination: He leadeth me. O blessed thought! O words with heavenly comfort fraught! Whate’er I do where’er I be, Still ‘tis God’s hand that leadeth me. He leadeth me,
He leadeth me, by his own hand he leadeth me; His faithful follower I would be, for by his hand he leadeth me.

Sermon “God Gave Eternal Life to Us” Rev. Stuart C. Buisch
Creed In life and in death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy
One of Israel, who alone we worship and serve. We trust in Jesus Christ fully human, fully God;
preaching good news to the poor and release to the captives, teaching by word and deed and
blessing the children, healing the sick and binding up the brokenhearted, eating with outcasts,
forgiving sinners, and calling all to repent and believe the gospel. A Brief Statement of Faith
Hymn Into my heart, into my heart, come into my heart, Lord Jesus; come into today,
come into stay; come into m heart, Lord Jesus. Out of my heart, out of my heart, shine out of my
heart, Lord Jesus; shine out today, shine out always; shine out of my heart, Lord Jesus. 2160
Joys and Concerns/Prayers of the People/Lord’s Prayer (pray for our church family)
Hymn Ref: She come sailing on the wind, her wings flashing in the sun; on a journey just
begun, she flies on. And in the passage of her flight, her song rings out through the night,
full of laughter, full of light, she flies on.
Flying to the river, she waited circling high, above the child now grown so full of grace, As
he rose up from the water, she swept down from the sky, and she carried him away in her
Long after the deep darkness that fell upon the world, after dawn returned in flame of rising
sun, the Spirit touched the earth again, again, her wings unfurled, binging life in wind and
fire as she slew on. 2122 vs 4,5
Charge Science is real. God is real but in very different ways. Render unto science the
things that are scientific and unto God the things, bodies and souls that are God’s.
Benediction May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the community
of the Holy Spirit be with us all evermore. Amen.
Song: As the wind song through the trees, as the stirring of the breeze, so it is with the
Spirit of God, as the heart made strangely warm, as the voice within the storm, so it is with
the Spirit of God. Never seen ever known where this wind has blown bringing life,
bringing power to the world as the dancing tongues of fire, as the soul’s most deep desire so
it is with the Spirit of God.
