WELCOME AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

CALL TO WORSHIP (inspired by Psalm 119:105-112)

        Your word is a lamp to my feet, Lord.

        Your word is a light to my path.

        Though the world around me tosses and tumbles,

        I hold fast to you.

        Though I have doubts and worries and I wonder,

        I hold fast to you.

        Though my heart hurts, my spirit aches, and I lose my way,

        I hold fast to you.

        Though I encounter wickedness and hate seemingly around every corner,

        I hold fast to you.

        Your stories and your songs, O Lord-

        They comfort me.

        Your will and your way, O Lord-

        They nudge me along.

        Your presence and your promise, O Lord-

        They give me hope.

        Your world is my heritage and my heart.

        And I will turn toward you forever.

        I will hold fast to you.

        And I will sing praises to your name!

~ Written by The Rev. Erin Counihan, pastor Oak Hill Presbyterian Church, St. Louis, USA
