Greetings to you all in the name of Christ!
Today is a special day; Share Sunday.
Share Sunday is an opportunity for the whole of the Uniting Church to celebrate the incredible community services being undertaken by our agencies, parish missions, presbyteries and congregations. It is also an invitation to continue to explore how we can partner together as we respond to Christ’s calling to serve humanity seeking to create an inclusive, connected and just world.
Worship resources and suggestions this morning have been (largely) supplied by Uniting in the hopes that we will join with other churches around the country in focussing our attention on a very important cause, that of youth homelessness.
Here is the first song, Sing Out Earth and Skies,
Here is the Early Word (with apologies for bad editing) – you might like to have pens or pencils and paper for this one, we’re going to draw.
Here is the Reflection, written by our friends at Uniting,
Here are the two recorded stories recommended in the reflection:
Here is the second song, I the Lord of Sea and Sky,
Here is the last song, a lovely version of Be Thou My Vision,
And here is the page where you can make a donation to the Share Appeal.
Also here is a sheet with some more facts about youth homelessness if you want to know more about this really awful issue affecting so many: Additional info Share Sunday
May your worship bring you closer to one another, to the God who calls you home and to those for whom we pray today.
