SONG

This song, probably composed by an Afro-American slave in the 19th century has been specially recorded for us by Keziah Rodell, Anne's daughter, who is living in Australia. It picks up on the theme of Jesus as 'the Way'.

You can follow the words here:

I went down to the river to pray 

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way

O sisters, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down

O sisters, let's go down
Down to the river to pray

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord, show me the way

O brothers, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
Come on, brothers, let's go down
Down to the river to pray

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way

O fathers, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O fathers, let's go down
Down to the river to pray

As I went down to the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord, show me the way

O mothers, let's go down
Come on down, come on down,
Come on, mothers, let's go down
Down to the river to pray

SERMON Preached by Martha   

Eternal God,

whose Son Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life:

grant us to walk in his way,

to rejoice in his truth,

and to share his risen life;

who is alive and reigns, now and for ever.

HYMN Join James and members of the choir and congregation to sing

Thy hand, O God, has guided

CREED Led by David and Judith

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again;

he ascended into heaven,

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

Amen

PRAYERS Led by Francis 

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, the power and the glory,

for ever and ever. 

Amen
