Greeting

Welcome to chapel! We are glad you’ve come to worship and pray with us. During the service, we ask that you keep yourself muted so that everyone can hear our worship leaders. You are welcome to turn your camera on or leave it off. If you’d like to follow along you can find the order of worship at http://www.drewchapel.com. We invite you to greet one another in the chat.

Come, let us worship God together.

Opening Song

“Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days”

Reading

Psalm 25:1-10

To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

O my God, in you I trust;
do not let me be put to shame;
do not let my enemies exult over me.

Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame;
let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
teach me your paths.

Lead me in your truth, and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all day long.

Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and of your steadfast love,
for they have been from of old.

Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
according to your steadfast love remember me,
for your goodness’ sake, O Lord!

Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore You instruct sinners in the way.

You lead the humble in what is right,
and teach the humble your way.

All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness,
for those who keep God’s covenant and God’s decrees.

Prayer

Teach us your ways, O God, that we may come down from our heights and be open to the same Spirit who moved over the face of the waters in the first day of creation and moves also over the chaos of this time to fashion a day like this, a world like ours, a kin-dom acting as leaven in the bread of earth.

Teach us your ways, O God, that we may love your kindness and express it by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, healing the sick and standing with the oppressed. May we do so in your mercy and with humility.

Teach us your ways, O God, so that we may praise you for all the surprising, ingenious ways you bless us, and for all the wondrous gifts you give us. May we use those gifts to inspire, to uplift, and to love others well. In the name of the one who is and was and is to come we pray. Amen.

Blessing
