~ Worshiping God ~

What would Francis say?

As we begin enjoying the gift of worshiping outside amidst the creation, help us continue the effort Francis began in 1225 when he penned All Creatures of Our God and King.

One stanza of this beloved hymn will serve as a gathering moment as we begin worship each Sunday morning in the pavilion at 8:30 a.m.

We need your help!

What is it that you appreciate or notice the most while worshiping outside?
To what creature would you like to give a voice?
What aspect of the setting do you hear offering praise to the Creator?

Put your writer's hat on ... and email me two 8 syllable, rhyming phrases that we will utilize to replace the two phrases in bold below.  Give it a try! Don't be shy!
Let us know if you need some help.

At the end of the season - on the Feast of St. Francis - we will put them all together as we raise our voices in gratitude for all that we will have experienced
in 2016 as we Worship On The Water.

All creatures of our God and King; Lift up your voice and with us sing!
We praise You, Alleluia!
The morning sun with golden beam; The evening moon with softer gleam;
All praise You; All praise You! Alleluia; Alleluia; Alleluia!
