NEW POST FOR 2016 HERE
or Psalm 150
Belief. Forgiveness. Gratitude. Peace.
Wow, that seems like plenty to work with.
Inspired by Iris Dement this week as she performed here at Grace Palm Sunday evening.
Church in the morning.
Church in the evening.
If you get a chance to see Iris live--do it.
Gathering: Sweet Hour of Prayer
Text: William Walford, 1772-1850
Music: William B. Bradbury, 1816-1868
Opening: I Saw the Light by Hank Williams
Gospel: I Believe In You by Bob Dylan
I like this version:
Offertory: Is Love Enough by Michael Franti
The kids have led this one.
Communion: Mercy Now by Mary Gauthier
An old favorite. Great line about doubt and fear in verse 2.
After Communion: Let the Mystery Be by Iris Dement
Closer: I'm a Believer by Neil Diamond
I am old enough to appreciate and remember the Monkees--AND Neil Diamond.
I don't think we've ever done this one on a Sunday morning...but on the right Sunday it would be really perfect. And somebody really getting into the tambourine--come on--goodness.
Rock it Neil.
