A Smile Growing

A smile growing, in the way I was speaking
a smile growing, capturing my face
my voice rising, in the sharing
Christ revealing himself
to the disciples of John

Smiling in my heart
echoed in theirs
smiles upon their faces
a congregation joining, sharing
in the proofs of the coming of the king.

A Smile Growing
I served as Liturgist
Call to Worship:
  Let us praise God, the creator of heaven and Earth. 
  Let us seek God with open minds and open hearts. 
  May we feel the Holy spirit among us. 
  As the Scriptures are read and the Word proclaimed,
  as prayers and music are offered, may we receive with
  joy and thanksgiving what is offered for us.
Unison Prayer:
   Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all
  desires known, and from you no secrets are
  hidden. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the
  inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may love
  you with our whole self, and worthily praise your
  holy name. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Luke 7:17-22
Prayer of Dedication:
  Loving God, the giver of all that is good; our lives
  are blessed daily by your gifts.  Help us to receive
  your gifts with such gratitude, that we will be giving,
  as you  are to us.  We pray that through us the whole
  world will know the gift of your generous love in
  Jesus Christ, the one who gave his life for us, and for
  the whole world.
Acts 3:1-8
