Offering forgiveness, comfort and joy. (Listen)

Singing: MV62 There Is Room for All

There is room for all in the shadow of God’s wing

There is room for all, sheltered in God’s love.

And I rejoice and sing,

“My refuge and my rock in whom I trust.”

There is room for all, there is room for all.


Opening Prayer

One:  Loving God, your Spirit touches us like a soft wind, warm rays of sunshine, or gentle drops of rain.

All:  There is no mistaking your presence in our lives.

One:  Yet, sometimes we feel so alone, we forget that you are here.

All:  Help us to find you and to remember you, in the firm knowledge that we are never alone.

One:  Help us to remember your presence in all the activities of our lives.

All:  We praise you for your guidance as we strive to be your presence in the world,

The ministry and mission of Knox continues, even when the building is closed.  God’s love and concern for those who are struggling is shared.  You make it possible to carry this message to everyone.  If you normally give when you are in worship, we encourage you to continue your regular donations through Canada Helps.  The link is here:  https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/107576134RR0001-knox-united-church/ All donations made will be forwarded to Knox Winnipeg.  Or, if you have envelopes, you could put your offering in an envelope each Sunday and bring them with you when we get back to in person worship.  Thank you for your generosity in these times of trouble.

I’ll bring my love. I’ll do my share.


Community Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy Name,

thy kingdom come,

thy will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those

who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory,

for ever and ever. Amen.

‘हे हाम्रा पिता, जो स्‍वर्गमा हुनुहुन्‍छ,

तपाईंको नाउँ पवित्र होस्‌।

तपाईंको राज्‍य आओस्‌। 

 तपाईंको इच्‍छा स्‍वर्गमा जस्‍तो छ,

त्‍यस्‍तै यस पृथ्‍वीमा पूरा होस्‌।

हामीलाई आज हाम्रो दैनिक भोजन दिनुहोस्‌।

हाम्रा अपराधहरू क्षमा गर्नुहोस्,

जसरी हामीले आफ्‍ना अपराधीहरूलाई क्षमा गरेका छौं।

हामीलाई परीक्षामा पर्न नदिनुहोस्,

तर दुष्‍टबाट छुटाउनुहोस्‌

किनभने राज्‍य, पराक्रम र महिमा

सदासर्वदा तपाईंकै हुन्, आमेन।’

MV145 Draw the Circle Wide

Refrain: Draw the circle wide.  Draw it wider still.

Let this be our song, no one stands alone,

Standing side by side, draw the circle wide.


God the still-point of the circle,

 ‘round whom all creation turns;

Nothing lost, but held forever,

in God’s gracious arms.  R


Let our hearts touch far horizons,

so encompass great and small;

Let our loving know no borders,

faithful to God’s call. R


Let the dreams we dream be larger,

than we’ve ever dreamed before,

Let the dream of Christ be in us,

open every doorR


Blessing (Unison):

Caring God, may your peace and love fall on each one of us, bringing peace and life. Enter into our innermost being. Quiet all that makes us anxious. Help us to linger in your presence and send us forward into the coming week refreshed to carry your peace to others.

So may the Spirit go with us, Jesus the Son lead us, and our God smile upon us as we go today and every day.
