WUC Peace Messages

Peace with earth: Finding a vision

It is time to ask ourselves what we can do differently. We must consider the values and the principles we need to guide us to more equitable, peaceful and sustainable ways of living. We must try to imagine this alternative life – what might it look like? How will we know if we are making the ‘right’ kind of ‘progress’? … This vision of wholeness is not about perfection – physical or spiritual – or freedom from disaster or suffering. It is not confined to ‘the world to come’ but is offered as a reality for the life of this world. It is a vision of flourishing, abundant life, of peace and reconciliation, justice and transformation, love and inclusion for all creation.

An Economy of Life: Re-imagining human progress for a flourishing world, Uniting Church in Australia National Assembly, July 2009, p.2 from

Peace with each other: Something to think about!

We all have filters on, so we mostly see
only what we want to see.
When you finally open your eyes, you may be shocked
at the obscured way you have been viewing the world
to suit your own little plans.
With those filters removed you can take a closer look
into yourself and ask objective questions
about the universe and your place in it.
In other words, investigate the meaning of life.

Book Club meets Monday October 15th at 8 pm in the church office to discuss ‘The history of bees’ by Maja Lunde. “Following a simple premise—what would happen if bees disappeared?—Lunde’s novel, originally released in Norwegian in 2015, jumps back and forth, across time, between the stories of three beekeepers. The term, it should be noted, is used loosely: There’s William, a British biologist in the mid-1800s; George, a farmer in the contemporary Midwest; and Tao, a young Chinese mother in a bee-less 2098 who spends hours performing manual labor in the fields to make up for the lack of apiformes. All three are dealing with personal problems brought about by the existence—or lack—of bees in their life. But the novel smartly relies limitedly on its ecological-disaster framework and instead gains its best footing in the quiet and intimate relationships it depicts between its characters …” ( from https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/09/maja-lunde-the-history-of-bees/538683/) Everyone is welcome to join in, or if you can’t make the discussion, you can still read the book.

SHARING OF NEWS & EVENTS

Greeting

INTROIT HYMN TIS 181 Come O God of all the earth

CALL TO WORSHIP

Today we celebrate our growing awareness of our humanity. We bring our empty hands and ask you to fill them. We bring our heavy hearts and ask you to share our load. We bring skin of many shades and sensitivities, eyes that yearn to see and ears that wait in silence and noise for the sound of your presence.

Amen.

HYMN: TiS 163 God who stretched the spangled heavens

Prayer of confession

TIME FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART

SONG: TIS 205 Jesus’s hands were kind hands

WE LISTEN FOR GOD’S WORD

Scripture readings:

Genesis 1: 26-28

Mark 10: 41-45

SERMON: Human dignity: Relationships and power to serve

HYMN TIS 640 Kneels at the feet of his friends

WE RESPOND IN PRAYER AND ACTION

OFFERING AND DEDICATION

We pledge, O God,

to discover how much is enough

for us to be truly fulfilled, neither rich nor poor.

We pledge, O God, to be part of the discovery

of how much is enough for everyone;

not only to survive but to thrive,

and find ways for all to have access to that.

May this offering of restraint and justice

teach us to live like Jesus

healing our lives and the life of the world.

Amen.

THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION

The Peace

Great prayer of Thanksgiving

The Lord be with you.

And also with you

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise

................ and so we praise you with the faithful of every time and place, joining with choirs of angels and the whole of creation in the eternal hymn:

Holy, holy, holy Lord,

God of power and might,

heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

THE LORD'S PRAYER:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done,

on earth as in heaven

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours

now and forever. Amen.

THE BREAKING OF THE BREAD

THE COMMUNION

Prayer after Communion incorporating Prayers of the people

WE MOVE OUT IN TO THE WORLD

Commissioning and sung blessing

May you, “wake up again to the most basic faith...that life is a gift… That life [is] contingent… but also surely a mystery and a gift. Set out on that little trail each day… that life is only possible through the shared sacrifice of all for others.”

Sallie McFague “Kenotic Theology.” (pp184-185).

So let us follow the example of Christ who emptied himself and gave his life in service and love, - we too go in peace to love and serve in the name of Christ. Amen

HYMN When you walk from here

WUC Peace Messages

Peace with earth: Does it demand moral courage?
A challenge: … “Because the looming environmental emergencies present a moral crisis, they call citizens of the world to our best and highest humanity. Climate change is a violation of human rights on an unimaginable scale. It is a failure of reverence for all the lives – the creatures of the land and sea that are striving to continue. It is a violation of justice, casting the burdens of corporate profligacy on those who will never enjoy its benefits. It is a betrayal of the children. It is also a chance, perhaps a last chance, to redeem the promise of humanity, the evolved awareness in a soft body that, from the time it draws its first breath, seeks to love and be loved”

WUC Peace Messages

Peace with earth: Does it demand moral courage?
A challenge: … “Because the looming environmental emergencies present a moral crisis, they call citizens of the world to our best and highest humanity. Climate change is a violation of human rights on an unimaginable scale. It is a failure of reverence for all the lives – the creatures of the land and sea that are striving to continue. It is a violation of justice, casting the burdens of corporate profligacy on those who will never enjoy its benefits. It is a betrayal of the children. It is also a chance, perhaps a last chance, to redeem the promise of humanity, the evolved awareness in a soft body that, from the time it draws its first breath, seeks to love and be loved”
Preface” in Great Tide Rising: towards clarity and moral courage, by Kathleen Dean Moore, (Counterpoint, Berkley 2016), from http://www.riverwalking.com/great-tide-rising.html downloaded September 13, 2016

WUC Activities
 

Men’s Friday Fix: Join us for a “fix” of coffee,  chat or whatever in an informal guy’s get together from 9:30 to 11:30am on 31 August 31 (the last Friday of the month) at the Church.    All welcome so bring a friend or neighbour too.  $2 donation. For more information contact Ken (0407 839 718)

Book Club meets Monday September 3 in the church office to discuss ‘Cadence" by Emma Ayres. ‘Emma Ayres reveals much about herself in an open, yet intimate portrayal of a tough early family life, the rigours of becoming a professional musician, and, in a sometimes amusing and other times chilling way, the androgynous trials of a lesbian on the sub-continent. Meanwhile the main theme of cycling, alone, from England to Hong Kong. presents a wonderful casserole of adventure, thickened and spiced with history and stories of individual contact with people who, in the main, would help to reawaken a feeling of trust and generosity in the most jaundiced reader’s faith in humanity.’ From https://johnofoz.wordpress.com/2014/06/08/an-occasional-review-cadence-by-emma-ayres-emmaayresviola-published-by-abc-books/ Everyone is welcome to join in, or if you can’t make the discussion, you can still read the book. A number of copies are available in our closest regional libraries. …
