The Elm Dance
After the choir sings the postlude on Sunday morning, those who wish to join in “The Elm Dance” gather in the circle dance area outside the church
before going up to coffee in the hall. The Elm Dance
The Divine Gift of Life, Light and Love
Our offering - a reflection of the gifts we have received
and an orientation of our giving to the life of this community.
There is nothing in all the Universe so much like God as silence.
Be Still and Know that I AM God
As we gather (ourselves and together) for worship, many find it helpful to still the noise of the everyday. Our Music Ministry team provide some sung reflections and an introit to assist us in being centred. Please be honouring to those who desire the stillness and prayerful silence as we begin and during the Eucharist. Conversations can always take place outside of the church, or later after the service.
We meditate on the glory of the Creator;
Who has created the Universe;
Who is worthy of Worship;
Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light;
Who is the remover of all Sin and Ignorance;
May The Divine enlighten our Intellect.
Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthi
May creatures all abound in wealth and peace;
May all be blessed with peace always;
All creatures weak or strong,
All creatures great and small;
Creatures seen or unseen,
Dwelling afar or near.
born or awaiting birth,
May all be blessed with peace!
