1 Service of Worship 26 th January 2014 With Revd Dr Kevin Snyman

2 Psalm 27 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to devour my flesh My adversaries and foes — they shall stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; Though war rise up against me, yet will I be confident. One thing I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: To live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, and to behold the beauty of the Lord.

3 I danced in the morning when the world was begun and I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun and I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth, at Bethlehem I had my birth Refrain: Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the Lord of the Dance, said he and I'll lead you all, wherever you may be and I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he

4 I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee But they would not dance and they wouldn't follow me I danced for the fishermen, for James and John - they came with me and the dance went on Refrain: Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the Lord of the Dance, said he and I'll lead you all, wherever you may be and I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he

5 I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame The holy people said it was a shame They whipped and they stripped and they hung me on high and they left me there on a Cross to die Refrain: Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the Lord of the Dance, said he and I'll lead you all, wherever you may be and I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he

6 I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black it's hard to dance with the devil on your back They buried my body and they thought I'd gone but I am the Dance, and I still go on Refrain: Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the Lord of the Dance, said he and I'll lead you all, wherever you may be and I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he

7 They cut me down and I leapt up high I am the life that'll never, never die I'll live in you if you'll live in me - I am the Lord of the Dance, said he Refrain: Dance, then, wherever you may be I am the Lord of the Dance, said he and I'll lead you all, wherever you may be and I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he

8 Prayers of Approach and Adoration

9 BEE-LIEVERBEE-ATTITUDES Bee Kind Bee Loving Bee Curious Bee Persistent Bee Hardworking Bee VERY Eco-Friendly Bee Humble … but… DON’T bee Pushed Around!!!

10 For the healing of the nations Lord, we pray with one accord for a just and equal sharing of the things that earth affords To a life of love in action help us rise and pledge our word Lead us forward into freedom from despair your world release that, redeemed from war and hatred all may come and go in peace Show us how through care and goodness fear will die and hope increase

11 All that kills abundant living let it from the earth be banned pride of status, race or schooling dogmas that obscure your plan In our common quest for justice may we hallow brief life's span You, Creator God, have written your great name on humankind for our growing in your likeness bring the life of Christ to mind that by our response and service earth its destiny may find

16 Blest are the meek For they shall inherit the earth Antiphon – all Show us your ways O Lord teach us your paths Blest are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness For they shall be filled Blest are the merciful For they shall obtain mercy

17 Antiphon – all Show us your ways O Lord teach us your paths Blest are the pure in heart For they shall see God Blest are the peacemakers For they shall be called God’s children Blest are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake The Kingdom of Heav’n is theirs Antiphon - all

18 Sermon

19 David Andrews’ Be-Attitudes 1) Focus on poor, not status or wealth - Humility 2) Grieve over injustice - Empathy 3) Get angry, not aggressive - Self restraint 4) Seek Justice, not vengeance - Righteousness 5) Extend compassion to all in need - Mercy 6) Be wholehearted in desire to do right - Integrity 7) Work for peace in a world of war - Non-violence 8) Suffer for just causes (Not 'just' war) - Perseverance

20 To quote the Be-Attitudes is religious… To act on them is revolutionary

21 Sermon Nekeisha Alexis Baker Higher clergy seduced by political power & economic comfort – Said 'yes' to temptation Jesus rejected in wilderness

22 Sermon Practise the Bee-Attitudes

23 Prayers of the People Norman Gatehouse

24 Offering

25 God of freedom, God of justice You whose love is strong as death You who saw the dark of prison You who knew the price of faith Touch our world of sad oppression With your Spirit's healing breath

26 Rid the earth of torture's terror You whose hands were nailed to wood Hear the cries of pain and protest You who shed the tears and blood Move in us the power of pity Restless for the common good

27 Make in us a captive conscience Quick to hear, to act, to plead Make us truly sisters, brothers Of whatever race or creed Teach us to be fully human Open to each other's need

28 Benediction May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ The love of God And the fellowship of the Holy Spirit Be with us all, forevermore AMEN
