Opening Hymn

#1008 "When Our Heart Is in a Holy Place"

Words and Music by Joyce Poley


Chorus


When our heart is in a holy place,

When our heart is in a holy place,

We are bless'd with love and amazing grace,

When our heart is in a holy place.


When we trust the wisdom in each of us,

Ev'ry color ev'ry creed and kind,

And we see our faces in each other's eyes,

Then our heart is in a holy place.


Chorus


When we tell our story from deep inside,

And we listen with a loving mind,

And we hear our voices in each other's words,

Then our heart is in a holy place.


Chorus


When we share the silence of sacred space,

And the God of our Heart stirs within,

And we feel the power of each other's faith,

Then our heart is in a holy place.

Go lifted up,

Closing Words

"The Truth That Makes Us Free"

Worship Web: Author Unknown


May the truth that makes us free,

and the hope that never dies,

and the love that casts out all fear

lead us forward together,

'till the day breaks,

and the shadows flee away.


Closing Circle

May faith in the spirit of life

And hope for the community of earth

And love of the light in each other

Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
