Voyager Soundings & Bearings #1 – “How Did We Get Where We Are?” (Psalm 107:23-31) Sunday, September 9, 2018

Call to Worship 

 

L:         In the midst of storms it’s easy to lose sight of the horizon.

P:         Yet if we keep our eyes fixed on God we are not lost.

L:         When waves and wind whip us about, we can lose heart.

P:         Yet if we remember God is with us we can take heart.

L:         On this voyage we’re on we will face perils.

P:         Yet let us be courageous, for God has overcome the world!

 

Scripture (Psalm 107:23-31) 

Our reading comes from the Psalms. We will read this together, meditating upon the words and images. Let us together speak, listen, and ponder God’s word.   

23Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the mighty waters;

 

24they saw the deeds of the Lord, his wondrous works in the deep.

 

25For he commanded and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea.

 

26They mounted up to heaven, they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their calamity;

 

27they reeled and staggered like drunkards, and were at their wits’ end.

 

28Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out from their distress;

 

29he made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed.

 

30Then they were glad because they had quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven.

 

31Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.

Here ends our reading. May God bless our understanding.
