Welcome and Announcements

 *Call to Worship                                                                                                                       

    Leader: Let us hear what God the Lord will speak.   

    People: God speaks peace to the people.    

    Leader: The Lord will always give what is good.      

    People: And God’s footsteps will show our way. [Psalm 85]                                            

 Lighting the Second Candle: Peace in Each Step of the Journey.

Speak: “Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God” (Isa. 40:1)

     Light the Second Candle, the Candle of Peace.

Reflect: Isaiah calls the people to get up to a high mountain. For generations people have cried out as Isaiah does that the paths are crooked, the valleys too far down, and the mountains too high. We fear stumbling on uneven stretches of the journey. What if we could see it all from God’s perspective, that through it all God is the eternal source of Peace?

Do: Each time you aet out on a road or pathways today, pause and ask God to grant you peace. Driving to work, walking into the office, or taking the dog for a walk, remember God’s promise of peace. 

Pray:  God of our journeys, whether we walk with purpose or wander without clear direction, whether we are in a valley or on the mountaintop, grant us your eternal peace.  Amen.
