MEDITATION    “Listening For God’s Voice”   Alan Minarcik
REFLECTION     Ken Pettigrew

Today’s service is fashioned after a set producer explaining what is going to happen just before it happens.  Alan is the producer, so he explains ‘raising our voices in praise’ as we begin the opening prayer and hymn.  Alan introduces the sermon time with an explanation of ‘listening for God’s Voice’ before Ken shares his reflection.   ‘Crying out to a God who listens‘ sets the scene for our time of Prayers for the People and Lord’s Prayer.

Music leadership today was provided by Heather Reid, Don Miller and Joyce Reid sharing music centred around worship, how and why we worship.  Music included Come Worship the Lord, Don’t Be Afraid, Joy Comes with the Dawn, Make a Joyful Noise and Take O Take Me as I am.  Prelude included some lively fiddle music.
