Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – Short North, Sunday March 20, 2016
Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and readings of the Veritas worship gathering on March 20, 2016
L: So the disciples brought the colt to Jesus and threw their garments over it for Him to ride on. As He rode along on His way into Jerusalem, a large crowd of Passover visitors took palm branches and went down the road to meet Him. They spread out their garments on the road ahead of Him and began to shout and sing as they walked along, praising God for all the wonderful miracles they had seen. “Hosanna, Praise God! Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Hail to the King of Israel!” But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!” Jesus replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!”
Song: “King of Glory”
L: Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
C: Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
—Based on Luke 19:35-40 (NLT) and John 12:12-14 (NLT)

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. Peace be with you.
