Dry Bones – March 29, 2020
Welcome to Olympic View Virtual Church!
Unison Call to Worship Psalm 105:1-4
O give thanks to the Lord, call on God’s name,
Make known God’s deeds among the peoples.
Sing to God, sing praises to the Lord,
Tell all of God’s wonderful works.
Glory in God’s holy name,
Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the strength of our God,
And seek God’s presence continually.
We lift up our prayers to you, O God
Prince of Peace, we pray right now for peace in our hearts.
We pray that we may take advantage of the world slowing down
as a reminder that the sabbath was created for us, a time of rest.
May we lay aside the longing of the world we created to be busy,
to do all the things possible.
May we lay aside the guilt that we are not doing enough
for our work, for our families, for our children or for our elders in this time.
May we instead embrace this new pace, and find peace.

A Call to Serve
This morning let us reflect on how we can offer hope to those, including ourselves, who may be feeling lost and alone now.
How can we offer support, and be the church we are called to be?
I would certainly encourage financial giving to our ministry here,
but what are other ways through our conversation, prayer, and actions
that can make those around us feel part of a beloved community?
