Inviting in God's Presence - An Act of Worship

ACT OF WORSHIP*

Meditation – “Be Still and Know”
"Be Still and Know" John Bell (Psalm 46) (c) 1989 WGRG The Iona Community (Scotland), admin. by GIA publciations, Inc.

Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

Every moment of life has the potential to be worship.
God invites us to find the joy of every second.
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

When we stop and listen, we can hear God’s voice.
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

When we stop to look, we can see God’s handiwork
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

When we take in a breath, we can breathe in the inspiration of the Holy Spirit
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

When we perceive the hurting world around us, we can discern God’s will for us to help.
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

When we grieve or experience loss, we can know that God will never leave us.
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

When we fall into despair or experience insufferable pain, we can know that God hears our cry.
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

In stillness and silence, in turmoil and despair, in chaos and noise, God is with us.
We are not alone
Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.



*Sing what is in italics. Share the readings among individuals in a small group. Read together what is bold. This song can be found in The Faith We Sing #TFWS 2057 and sounds best when led by guitar. The guitar can also underscore what is read aloud. It sounds like this:
