Meditation “The Goddess is the unspeakable wisdom that grew into the very cells of the body. She lives with the sacramental truth at her center: the beauty and the horror of the whole of life are blazing in Her love. She is dancing in the flames.” Dancing in the Flames, Marion Woodman

“Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of way to kneel and kiss the ground.“ Rumi

“A simple, beautiful practice has bee spreading along with the Work That Reconnects. To celebrate their commitment to life and their solidarity with activists the world over, people join hands in a circles dance….Joann took the Elm Dance to workshops she was leading with a Russian-speaking team in areas poisons by the Chernobyl disaster. There….the dance became an expression of the peoples will to live, It was here the dance evolved a distinctive form with the raising of swaying of arms, evolving their connection with the trees they so loved.” Coming Back to Life Joanana Macy

(Silence) 

One: We pray for  those who are sick,  those who suffer from addiction, mental illness and  for those who are mourning. (Silence)  We pray for those who are dying 

and being born. We pray for all those who have asked for our prayers, our clients and those in our church.  (Silence)  We pray for Mother Earth, for all creatures, plants, animals and minerals.   (Silence)  We pray for our enemies as Jesus taught us. (Silence)

All: We come  to make confession for we are often self-centered and  ignorant of the harm we do. Please forgive us for those things we know we have done and for those things we do not know we have done. We long to be close to you, Gracious God and to become more loving to ourselves and all of creation.

Meditation “No man can concentrate his attention upon evil, of even upon the idea of evil, and remain unaffected. To be more against the devil that for God is exceedingly dangerous.

Musical response     Down to the River to Pray  

Passing of the Peace God Loves You and There is Nothing You Can Do About It

 Scriptures Gospel of Mark 1:21-28, NRSV They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught. 22They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. 23Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, 24and he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” 25But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” 26And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.27They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another, “What is this? A new teaching—with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” 28At once his fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee.

Philippians 4:8-9 NRSV Finally, beloved,[a] whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about[b] these things. 9 Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.

Meditation "If prayer were a conventional form of energy, it should weaken as distance is increased, and this does not happen. If it were energy, its effects could be shielded, but this has not proved possible. This suggests that prayer does not involve any conventional form of energy or signal, that it does not travel from here to there, and that it may not "go" anywhere at all. It then  may be simultaneously present everywhere, enveloping sender, object and Loving GOD (my addition) [the Almighty] all at once." Healing Words, Dr. Larry Doseey MD

Opening Musical Prayer       Our Dear, Dear Mother by Raffi   
Our dear, dear Mother, daily provider, earth be your name. The time has come, to honor you, to know you and to show our love.” 1.You give us each day our daily grain, kissed by the sun and kissed by the rain. Teach us now to find a way to care for you in our work and play. Chorus2.Within the beauty of your silent spin, we know you’re hurting and we feel your pain your pain. With your forgiveness we can start anew. We need a chance to make it up to you. Chorus

Prayer in Unison  Dear God,  Goddess, You who we call by many names, You are in us and all over the place- in every living thing,  up and down, inside our bodies  and you who we live inside, for you are the vastness of the galaxies-- we come  to say thank you. You are creativity, energy and light, and you are dancing in star dust and stars, plants and animals, oceans and  mountains, clouds and  air, and all  life that  dances  in cells and atoms; You who are love,  truth, dreams  and all holiness that is  invisible to our eyes.  You who are the net of relationships —you are an awesome God and we give you thanks.  You God are the unity that is the all, beyond words yet as close as our breath.  You who are the sacred interconnectedness-- we give thanks for our part of your miraculous oneness of creation. Our hearts are filled with awe and gratitude for our life and for all life and for you gracious God that animates us all.  Thank you.  We come also to make confession for we are often selfish,  greedy as well as ignorant of the harm we do and we ask  for your forgiveness. Please forgive us for the harm we do intentionally and the harm we do that we are not aware of.  We long to be close to you and to spiritually grow and become more loving to all of creation. Please guide us in this time of global and ecological crisis that Our Common Home, a church and counseling center will be a source of service, inspiration, healing and love.  Amen
