GREETING

WORSHIP THROUGH PRAYERFUL SILENCE

I invite you to relax, breathe deeply, close your eyes, and enter into the Quiet of Silent Prayer, Meditation. Enjoy a while in this Silence. For those who like music as background during your Quiet, I give the video below. I recommend a mantra, or prayer-word, invocation; however, feel free to enjoy the Silence however you choose.


Breathing in: Come
Breathing out: holy Spirit


WORSHIP THROUGH SONG

*Michael W. Smith. “Breathe.”

WORSHIP THROUGH SCRIPTURE

JOHN 14.15-21

If you love me, keep my teachings. And I will petition the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that the Helper may remain with you always. This is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, for it does not see It, and does not know It. But you know that One, for the Spirit lives with you and shall be in you. I will not leave you abandoned; I will come to you. Yet a short time, and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. I live, therefore, you shall live. In that time, you will know I am in my Father, you in me, and I in you. The person who has my teachings and follows them, that person loves me, and the Father will love that person; I will love the person, also, and show myself to that one.

COLOSSIANS 3.1-4

If you, then, are risen with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ sits on the right hand of the Divine One. Set your affections on things above, not things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hid with Christ in the Divine One. When Christ, who is our Life shall manifest, you shall also manifest with him in glory.

WORSHIP THROUGH PRAYERS

Hold in prayer audibly or in silence intercessions for persons and needs, petitions for yourself, and thanksgiving and praise. End the time with Prayerful Silence.

SONG FOR UNITY AND PEACE, AND WORSHIP
THROUGH WITNESSNG OUR FAITH

*Michael Jackson, et al. “We Are The World.”

We believe in the Divine Presence,
known by many names and titles,
and worshiped in many ways.

We believe in the diversity of
religions, sacred paths, and
spiritual traditions as many
ways the Divine communes
with us.

We believe in the goodness
of Creation, and of the need
to respect Nature as an expression
of the Divine Artist.

We believe that each person,
regardless of race, creed, color,
or any other human distinction,
is deserving of respect as a spiritual
being in the image of the Giver of Life.

We believe we are responsible
to live by the highest standards
of human conduct and character,
and we rely on Divine Grace to work
in and through us to enable us to live
such a noble and dignified life in Love.

*Brian Kenneth Wilcox. "OneLife Confession 1."

WORSHIP THROUGH THE SPOKEN WORD

A GROWING SPIRITUAL INTIMACY

Brian Kenneth Wilcox, Chaplain, MDIV, MFT, PHD

WORSHIP THROUGH RESPONSE

SONG

*John Paul Young. "Love Is In The Air."

QUIET REFLECTION

This time is to reflect prayerfully, and in silence, seeking to listen to the Inner Voice of Love, and discerning your personal response to the Experience today.

The following musical presentation is for those who would enjoy some deeply relaxing music while sitting in Silence. The music is Paul Collier, “Air.” Please spend some time now sitting in Silence. When you are ready, come out of the Silence slowly and with an inward Prayer for all the children in our world, that they will know in their lifetimes a world at peace among all peoples and where no child goes hungry or uncared for. Take that peace and love with you, as you leave this Experience, and share it wherever you go. Amen.






Thanks!
