Pentecost Year B
Reflections on the Mustard Seeds - Mark 4:31
Collect - Call to Worship - Prayer of Dedication
Written for the Union Church UCC of Tekonsha. Copyright Katherine Hawker.
We feel like mustard seeds, tiny and insignificant.
Like unplanted seeds, we forget that it is our calling
to be planted in the warmth of Gods earth.
May the Great Spirit carry our seeds to fertile ground
where the roots of our faith may grow deeply
and the branches of our love be broad.
Call to Worship
Called to be branches in Christs body,
WE YEARN TO BE CONNECTED TO THE VINE.
Called to be mustard bushes offering shade to Gods creatures,
WE SEARCH FOR PLACES TO PLANT THE SEEDS OF FAITH.
Called to be growing with God in the midst of this worlds painful questions,
WE SEEK GODS NURTURING PRESENCE.
Prayer of Dedication
MAY THE OFFERINGS BROUGHT THIS DAY BE USED AS SEEDS, PLANTED FAITHFULLY AND NURTURED LOVINGLY SO THAT GODS WAY MAY BE REALIZED ANEW IN THIS WORLD. GRANT US THE HUMILITY WE NEED TO PLANT AND TEND YOUR PRECIOUS GARDEN. AMEN.
