WAIT... with prayerful expectation.

Come Holy Spirit: Thy Kingdom Come.

READ... the text with an open mind.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come into his presence with singing.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he that made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him, bless his name.
For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures for ever,
and his faithfulness to all generations. (Psalm 100)

LISTEN... for a word with a willing heart.

RESPOND... with prayer and action.

Oh welcoming God, you invite us to journey with you
through your beautiful world
and delight in your dwelling place.
So we will enter and exalt, shout and sing,
placing our hope in you,
our good and forever God,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
