Order of Worship

Call to Worship for before the parade:
Glory be to God who calls in the rush of the wind and whispers in the wing-beat of a dove.
Fill us, Breath of Life, and rouse our heavy hearts.
Come, O Spirit, let your power blow through your people on the gusts of morning.
Breathe into us so we might feel within ourselves a gentle stirring of life and hope.
Come, Gentle Whisper of Grace.
Open our hearts that we may see all people through the eyes of your limitless love which casts out fear.
Come, Spirit of Truth, breathe upon us anew this day, and renew our faith.
Breathe into us the life that never dies.
Breathe the hope that never despairs.
Breathe the courage that never turns back, and breathe the joy that never stops singing.
Come, O Spirit, stir and challenge us.
Fill your daughters and your sons with words to speak and new dreams to dream.
That same Spirit which sang in the church of old is lending new songs to us this day!
We take up the strain with gladness for the wonder of the Spirit’s gifts! We raise it high and send it on – the music never-ending!

Hymn for before the parade: This Is the Day (vss. 1-3)

This is the day, this is the day that our God has made, that our God has made;
we will rejoice, we will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it.
This is the day that God has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
This is the day, this is the day that our God has made.

This is the day, this is the day when the Spirit came, when the Spirit came;
we will rejoice, we will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it.
This is the day when the Spirit came, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
This is the day, this is the day when the Spirit came.

This is the day, this is the day when the Church was born, when the church was born;
we will rejoice, we will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it.
This is the day when the Church was born, we will rejoice and be glad in it.
This is the day, this is the day when the Church was born.
