Easter Online Worship worship

25th April 2021

Fourth Sunday of Easter

Welcome

This Sunday, Rev. Dr Martin Scott is leading  worship and celebrating Holy Communion in the church building, and in our online worship we are sharing in the Moderator’s Service for the use of all congregations in Scotland. The Rt  Rev. Martin Fair speaks to us from a field of sheep but then sends us to a different place, to Closton Milton in Glagow, for a powerful reflection on John 10:11-18

“Good Good Shepherd”

Prayer for this Sunday Evening at 7 pm

Lord our God,
We listen for the voice of the Good Shepherd,
For he is the One who will guard us and keep us
And lead us safe home.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord our God,
We listen for the voice of the Good Shepherd,
For he has spoken to us throughout all our days
And still he speaks, even amidst the clamour of the day.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord our God,
We listen for the voice of the Good Shepherd,
For he has nurtured and provided for us
And lifted us up, even when we have fallen.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord our God,
We listen for the voice of the Good Shepherd,
For he is the One who has laid down his life for us
In order that we might have life, even in the face of darkness.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord our God,
We listen for the voice of the Good Shepherd,
For your goodness and mercy still follows us
And you shall lead us safe home, even at the end of our days.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Amen
