Summer Service Bulletin for Sunday, June 20, 2021
Invitatory: Prelude on “Land of Rest” by Wilbur Held (1914-2015)
Welcome & Introduction of Guest Preacher: Dean Thames
Call to Worship
Sermon: Rev. Dr. David Buschman
Hymn: God Marked a Line and Told the Sea (Kedron)
God marked a line and told the sea its surging tides and waves were free to travel up the sloping strand but not to overtake the land.
The line, the limit, and the law are patterns meant to help us draw a bound between what life requires and all the things our heart desires.
We are not free when we’re confined to every wish that sweeps the mind. But free when freely we accept the sacred bounds that must be kept.
Lord’s Prayer: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer for Princeton: O Eternal God, the source of life and light for all peoples, we pray you would endow this University with your grace and wisdom: give inspiration and understanding to those who teach and to those who learn; grant vision to its trustees and administrators; to all who work here and to all who bear her name give your guiding Spirit of sacrificial courage and loving service. Amen.
Voluntary: Toccata in Seven by John Rutter (b. 1945)
