Greeting

Janelle Gayle

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

“There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy”

Led by Brendan Fox

Reading

Jeremiah 31:31-34 NRSV

31 The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the Lord,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.

Prayer

Holy One, you desire honesty from the heart – teach us to be wise in our inmost being.

In the heart of our hearts,
In the place where we are most ourselves,
In the space that we protect the most
and share the least.

In the hidden chamber that we sometimes close off
even from ourselves,
In the realm where you wait and watch,
where you see each thing that lies in shadow,
where you know the names of all that makes their homes in us.

Here in our secret hearts;
Here teach us to move with your wisdom,
to open the doors that will draw us deeper still,
to live in the truth that you desire;
Here let us open the windows wide
so that those who pass by will see you looking out.

In the one who loves us and sets us free we pray, Amen.

Blessing

Rev. Dr. J. Terry Todd
