Psalm 30:5b "weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning."

A Reflection Before the Service

  • “If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

    ― E.B. White

     

    “Pleasure is the only thing one should live for, nothing ages like happiness.”

    ― Oscar Wilde

     

    "Reflect upon your present blessings - of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."

    ― Charles Dickens, 'A Christmas Carol

    And Other Christmas Writings'

     

The Call To Worship

  • Psalm 30:1-2, 4-5, 11-12

     

    I will exalt You, LORD,

    for You lifted me out of the depths

    and did not let my enemies gloat over me. 

    LORD my God, I called to You for help,

    and You healed me. 

    Sing the praises of the LORD, you His faithful people;

    praise His holy Name. 

    For His anger lasts only a moment,

    but His favor lasts a lifetime;

    weeping may stay for the night,

    but rejoicing comes in the morning.  

    You turned my wailing into dancing;

    You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,  

    that my heart may sing Your praises and not be silent. 

    LORD my God, I will praise You forever.

     

    (Prayer)
