  • CHIMES The chimes call us to silent readiness.

    PRELUDE Diapason Piece Samuel Wesley


    CALL TO WORSHIP L: No great flowing fabrics of red hanging from sanctuary ceilings, yet this is still the day we celebrate Grace’s breath flooding into our shuttered hearts. P: On this day, clad in our pajamas, sitting at home may we continue to let the Spirit of new life breathe upon us! L: From near empty sanctuaries, through video worship, we gather with our sisters and brothers,

    proclaiming that we are God’s Pentecost. P: On this day, we would touch (virtually) all who remain sheltered in place, safe in God’s grace. L: There will be no Pentecost birthday cakes, no balloons released, no butterflies emerging from cocoons, yet in the days to come, we will continue to speak of God’s love and the Spirit’s peace for all. P: So that even apart, people will know they are not alone, And that when that day comes, and we know it will, people will find a community awaiting them when they once again venture out into the light of God’s world. L: Let us worship God!

    HYMN #285 Like the Murmur of the Dove’s Song BRIDEGROOM (See music in bulletin)

    PRAYER OF CONFESSION Merciful and gracious God, Our hearts cry out for You to make us whole again. Even as we celebrate that You have come to dwell within us, We have sinned against You and abandoned Your commandments. We have been jealous, possessive, ambivalent, and impulsive. We have not heeded Your Word and we have not cherished Your covenant. Help us to glorify You in all times and in all places. As our souls thirst for Your living waters, Quench our needs and satisfy our love That we may come back to You and be sent forth To fill the world with Your mercy and grace.

    DECLARATION OF PARDON L: God has promised to send us the Spirit, that we might know fully God's presence in the world and in our lives. P: We know that the Spirit of forgiveness and understanding flows over us this day and always. Thanks be to God, we are forgiven. L: Let us worship God!

    GLORIA PATRI Hymn #581 Glory be to the Father And to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, Is now, and ever shall be, World without end – Amen, Amen.


    DOXOLOGY Hymn #606 Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

    SCRIPTURE READING: Acts 2:1-21 (NRSV, Pew Bible p. 885)

    2 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And

    suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the

    entire house where they were sitting. 3 Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them,

    and a tongue rested on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and

    began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.

    5 Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. 6 And at

    this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them

    speaking in the native language of each. 7 Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all

    these who are speaking Galileans? 8 And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own

  • 4

    native language? 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and

    Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya

    belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and

    Arabs—in our own languages we hear them speaking about God’s deeds of power.” 12 All

    were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13 But others

    sneered and said, “They are filled with new wine.”

    14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, “Men of Judea

    and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say. 15 Indeed,

    these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning. 16 No, this is

    what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

    17 ‘In the last days it will be, God declares,

    that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,

    and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

    and your young men shall see visions,

    and your old men shall dream dreams. 18 Even upon my slaves, both men and women,

    in those days I will pour out my Spirit;

    and they shall prophesy. 19 And I will show portents in the heaven above

    and signs on the earth below,

    blood, and fire, and smoky mist. 20 The sun shall be turned to darkness

    and the moon to blood,

    before the coming of the Lord’s great and glorious day. 21 Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

    AFFIRMATION OF FAITH Adapted from the Belhar Confession We believe in one holy, universal Christian church, the unity of the communion of saints of the entire human family. And we believe that this unity of the people of God must be manifest and active, in that we love one another; that we give ourselves willingly and joyfully to one another, that we share one baptism together, that we eat of one bread and drink of one cup together, that we confess one name, one Lord, for one cause, with one hope, which is the height and the breadth and the depth and the love of Christ, forever and ever. Amen.

    HYMN Love One Another Bill Wolff

    Love one-another, show that you care. Give to each other, you'll find Him there.

    When sorrow has found you, when you're feeling all alone.

    You'll find Him in your brother's eyes; and He'll take you home. (refrain)

    And when you are happy, when joy fills you up inside. Open up your heart and share it; it's a joy you can't hide. (refrain)

    Oh, don't hesitate now. This moment will forever pass!

    Open up your heart and find, a love that will last. (refrain)


    The Lord’s Prayer Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.

    Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done

    On earth as it is in heaven.

    Give us this day our daily bread;

    And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;

    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

    For Thine is the kingdom and the power

    And the glory, forever. Amen.
