Prayer for Renewal: God, we live in a broken and hurting world, immersed in a society that challenges our ability to hear your voice and to see St. Andrew’s By-The-Lake the pathway you make for us. Walking with you through the maze of choices and challenges demands more of us than we United Church expected. Sung Response: And it’s from the old I travel to the new; keep me travelling along with you. Your advice to turn the other cheek is often forgotten as our tempers blaze and we rage about an eye for an eye. What we call justice and what you offer us in reconciliation are often light years apart. Walking with you is hard, our feet are wounded, and the pace you set can be exhausting. Sung Response: And it’s from the old I travel to the new; keep me travelling along with you. When we go with you, we find that what you do is beyond fairness, expectation, and generosity. You call us and the whole of creation into a state of grace, where justice and righteousness flow like a mighty stream, where gifts for the Statement of Purpose: people of God pour out abundance of life. Help us to learn the spiritual discipline to walk with you and to live in the St. Andrew's By-The-Lake United Church strives to be… perfection of grace that you offer. a friendly, welcoming and inclusive church family which Sung Response: And it’s from the old I travel to the new; offers: keep me travelling along with you. spiritual leadership, concern and support for people in the community and the wider world, Amen. personal growth for all ages, through worship and educational opportunities that strengthen faith in God Sung Response is the refrain of Hymn 639: “One More Step Along the through Christ, and World I Go” an informal setting, accessible and inviting to all.
