Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap, Sunday July 12th, 2015

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on July 12th, 2015

This week we resumed our look through the book of Acts, picking up where we left off in the spring. Garrison Greene preached a sermon entitled “The Inclusive Gospel” from Acts 10 – 11:18. So, as we explore God’s desire to unite entirely different people under the sacrifice of His Son, let us open our ears and our hearts to hear from God through His Word and rejoice in Him! We will start the gathering by singing a song called “Greater is He”.

L: “I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees. You will be my people, and I will be your God.”
-Ezekiel 36:24-28

:::BENEDICTION:::

As God’s own, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, and patience, forgiving each other as the Lord has forgiven you, and crown all these things with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Go in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you.
– Based on Colossians 3
