O Great God (Kauflin)

Confession

Scripture Reading: From Job 38

“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
     Tell me, if you have understanding.
 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
     Or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk,
     or who laid its cornerstone,
when the morning stars sang together
     and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
           
“Or who shut in the sea with doors
     when it burst out from the womb,
when I made clouds its garment
     and thick darkness its swaddling band,
 and prescribed limits for it
     and set bars and doors,
 and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
     and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?
                       
“Have you entered into the springs of the sea,
     or walked in the recesses of the deep?
Have the gates of death been revealed to you,
     or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
     Declare, if you know all this.
           
“Where is the way to the dwelling of light,
     and where is the place of darkness,
You know, for you were born then,
     and the number of your days is great!
           
“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow,
     or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,
which I have reserved for the time of trouble,
     for the day of battle and war?
What is the way to the place where the light is distributed,
     or where the east wind is scattered upon the earth?
           
 “Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades
     or loose the cords of Orion?
Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?
     Can you establish their rule on the earth?          
           
“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,
     that a flood of waters may cover you?
Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go
     and say to you, ‘Here we are’?
 
Who has put wisdom in the inward parts
     or given understanding to the mind?
Who can number the clouds by wisdom?
     Or who can tilt the waterskins of the heavens,
when the dust runs into a mass
     and the clods stick fast together?

 

Lead Us Back (Gilles and Ritter)

Gospel & Thanksgiving

Scripture Reading:  Ephesians 1:3-6

[Leader]
Blessed be the God and Father
     of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us in Christ
      with every spiritual blessing
          in the heavenly places,
 
even as he chose us in him
      before the foundation of the world,
 
[All]
that we should be holy
     and blameless before him.
 
[Leader]
In love he predestined us for adoption to himself
     as sons through Jesus Christ,
according to the purpose of his will,
 
[All]
to the praise of his glorious grace,
    with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
