Kyrie

Veni Sancte Spiritus

A reading from

The Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-15; 2:23

Psalm 107

I will exalt you, O Lord, because you have lifted me up

  and have not let my enemies triumph over me.

O Lord my God, I cried out to you,

  and you restored me to health.

You brought me up, O Lord, from the dead;

  you restored my life as I was going down to the grave.

Sing praise to the Lord, all you faithful;

  give thanks in holy remembrance.

Psalm 107

God’s wrath is short; God’s favor lasts a lifetime.

  Weeping spends the night, but joy comes in the morning.

While I felt secure, I said,

  “I shall never be disturbed.

You, Lord, with your favor, made me as strong as the mountains.”

  Then you hid your face, and I was filled with fear.

I cried to you, O Lord;

  I pleaded with my Lord, saying,

Psalm 107

“What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit?

  Will the dust praise you or declare your faithfulness?

Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me;

  O Lord, be my helper.”

You have turned my wailing into dancing;

  you have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.

Therefore my heart sings to you without ceasing;

  O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.

A reading from 2 Corinthians 8:7-15

 Mark 5:21-43

1 Samuel 17

Psalm 107

2 Cor. 6

Mark 4

Were there words or phrases that touched you?

Word of God; Word of Life.

Thanks be to God.

We Complete the Sermon Together

1. As you look at the world/US/Iowa City, where are you most invested in seeing God's healing touch come?

 

2. What would it take to a privileged one on hold while you focused your attention a concern of someone who is poor and vulnerable?

We Shall Overcome

We shall overcome, we shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We shall overcome some day


The Lord will see us through, the Lord will see us through
The lord will see us through some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
The Lord will see us through some day

We Shall Overcome

 

We’ll know his power to heal,

we’ll know his power to heal,
We’ll know his power to heal some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We’ll know his power to heal some day


We’ll hear ‘Talitha cum,’ we’ll hear ‘Talitha cum,’
We’ll hear ‘Talitha cum’ some day
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We’ll hear ‘Talitha cum’ some day
