WELCOME — Pastor Rob

PRELUDE — "Antiphon'" — Gordon Young


Pastor: What many of us value so highly in life, Jesus says will not bring true happiness.

People: We strive for success, wealth, power . . .

Pastor: But Jesus says, happy are the poor, the hungry, those in sorrow, and the despised.

People: We yield to our Lord's authority, assured of his good and perfect will for our lives.

* UNISON PRAYER Almighty God, who knows better than we do what the real values in life are; Teach us to re-order our lives after your pattern, that we may receive the true happiness we seek, and which you to give. We pray in our Savior's name. Amen.
