Call to worship Ch4 448 Shine Jesus Shine 1 Lord, the light of your love is shining in the midst of the darkness, shining ; Jesus, Light of the world, shine upon us, set us free by the truth you now bring us. Shine on me, shine on me. Shine, Jesus, shine, fill this land with the Fathers glory ; blaze, Spirit, blaze, set our hearts on fire. Flow, river, flow, flood the nations with grace and mercy ; send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light ! 2 Lord, I come to your awesome presence, from the shadows into your radiance ; by your blood I may enter your brightness, search me, try me, consume all my darkness. Shine on me, shine on me. 3 As we gaze on your kingly brightness, so our faces display your likeness, ever changing from glory to glory, mirrored here may our lives tell your story. Shine on me, shine on me. Graham Kendrick (b. 1950) Prayer Bible Reading - Jonah Chapter 1 Jonah - A whales Tale part 1. ( Stuart Mckenzie)

Ch4 186 Father God, I wonder how I managed to exist Father God, I wonder how I managed to exist without the knowledge of your parenthood and your loving care. But now I am your child, I am adopted in your family, and I can never be alone cause, Father God, youre there beside me. I will sing your praises, I will sing your praises, I will sing your praises for evermore. The last three lines are sung twice. Ian Smale (b. 1949)

Talk 2 - When God calls - You can run but you cant hide. Offering Ch4 807 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow Praise God, from whom all blessings flow ; praise him, all creatures here below ; praise him above, ye heavenly host ; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Thomas Ken (16371711) Dedication of offering ( Leader) Prayer of Praise You see deep into our hearts, O LORD, and you know everything about us. You know when we are working or resting, when we come and when we go. No matter where we are, we are never out of your sight. Even before we speak a word, you already know what we are going to say. Your reassuring presence surrounds us at all times. Such knowledge is far above us We cant begin to comprehend it! It was you who created us, Who formed us inside our mothers womb? We praise you for the gift of life, and for the miracle of our bodies. Everything you do is marvelous, and worthy of our praise! Nothing about us is hidden from you! Even before we were born, you knew us and watched over us and you continue to walk with us, through out all the stages of our lives. Your thoughts are far beyond our understanding, More than we could ever imagine. They outnumber the grains of sand on the beach. Look deep into our hearts, O God. Search out our hidden thoughts and motives. Keep us from actions that will bring harm to ourselves or to others, and guide us in the ways that lead to life. Amen. based on verses from Psalm 139 Ch4 97 O God, you search me and you know me PSALM 139 1 O God, you search me and you know me. All my thoughts lie open to your gaze. When I walk or lie down you are before me : ever the maker and keeper of my days.

(Congregation)

You know my resting and my rising. You discern my purpose from afar, and with love everlasting you besiege me : in every moment of life or death, you are.

Before a word is on my tongue, Lord, you have known its meaning through and through. You are with me beyond my understanding : God of my present, my past and future, too. 4 Although your Spirit is upon me, still I search for shelter from your light. There is nowhere on earth I can escape you : even the darkness is radiant in your sight. 5 For you created me and shaped me, gave me life within my mothers womb. For the wonder of who I am, I praise you : safe in your hands, all creation is made new. from Psalm 139 Bernadette Farrell (b. 1957) Talk 2 - Lord you search and you know us - nothing is hidden from God Prayers for ourselves and others Ch4 485 Dear Lord and Father of mankind 1 Dear Lord and Father of mankind, forgive our foolish ways ; reclothe us in our rightful mind ; in purer lives thy service find, * in deeper reverence, praise. 2 In simple trust like theirs who heard, beside the Syrian sea, the gracious calling of the Lord, let us, like them, without a word rise up and follow thee. 3 O Sabbath rest by Galilee ! O calm of hills above, where Jesus knelt to share with thee the silence of eternity, interpreted by love ! 4 With that deep hush subduing all our words and works that drown the tender whisper of thy call, as noiseless let thy blessing fall as fell thy manna down. 5 Drop thy still dews of quietness, till all our strivings cease ; take from our souls the strain and stress, and let our ordered lives confess the beauty of thy peace. 6 Breathe through the heats of our desire thy coolness and thy balm ; let sense be dumb, let flesh retire ; speak through the earthquake, wind and fire, O still small voice of calm ! * The last line of each verse is repeated. John Greenleaf Whittier (18071892)

Ch4 803 We will walk with God, my brothers Sizohamba Naye We will walk with God, my brothers, we will walk with God. We will walk with God, my sisters, we will walk with God. We will go rejoicing till the kingdom has come. We will go rejoicing till the kingdom has come. Swaziland traditional hymn
