Pastor Megan Honored By Dalai Lama

 
On Sunday February 23rd, Pastor Megan was received an honorable mention as an Unsung Hero of Compassion by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  His Holiness was present at the event and spoke about compassion and peace.  Video of the presentation can be found here.

Dick Grace, from the Grace Family Winery Foundation helped coordinate the event shared that he believed the real unsung heroes were the vulnerable individuals who were being cared for by those being honored. 

The Grace Family Winery Foundation provided Welcome with a grant that will cover the costs of a Health and Vision Event on the Big Island of Hawaii.  At this event Pastor Megan will partner with the congregants at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity in Kailua Kona.

Epiphany 7

February 23, 2014

10 am Holy Communion Service

Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, San Francisco


 Prelude:  "Jesus, the Very thought of Thee"; John Dykes; arr. Eleanor Whitsett


Assurance of Forgiveness

P    Forgetting that God has blessed us, we return again and again to worship, yearning to remember God’s promises.  As often as we have forgotten to follow God, we have been forgiven.  May we receive God’s compassion experience forgiveness for all of our sins, in the name of Jesus Christ.

C     Amen.

Greeting

P   The Grace of Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

C    And also with you.

Gathering Hymn


Prayer of the Day

P   Let us pray.

A brief silence is kept.


Loving God, you are made known in the work of our hands, in the beauty of creation and the ways that we love.  Help us to act with kindness, compassion and forgiveness.  Help us to grow and to honor the growth of other.  Amen.


Welcome                 Pastor Rohrer


First Reading: Leviticus 19:1-2, 9-18

19:1 God told Moses 2 to tell the entire Israelite community these things: Be holy, for I, God, am holy…


9 When you reap the harvest from your fields, do not cut the grain to the very edges of the field, or gather in all the gleanings. 10 Nor are you to completely strip your vines or pick up the fallen fruit. Leave the extra grain and fruit for poor people and foreigners to gather for themselves.  I am a God known through actions.


11 Do not steal. do not lie. Do not cheat your neighbor. 12 Do not swear by my name with the intent to deceive, for if you do, you profane my name.  I am a God known through actions. 


13 Do not oppress your neighbors or rob them. Do not hold back the hired hand’s wages until the next day. 14 Do not insult deaf people, or put obstacles in the way of blind people.   Revere your God.


15Do not be corrupt in administering justice. Do not show partiality to the poor or give honor to the great. Judge your neighbor with fairness. 16 Do not go about slandering others. Do not profit by the blood of your neighbor. I am a God known through actions.


17 Do not nurse hatred for a neighbor. If you are angry with your neighbor, speak frankly about it, to avoid storing up ill feelings.18 Never seek revenge or hold a grudge toward your relatives. You must love your neighbor as you love yourself. I am a God known through actions.


L   The word of the Lord

C  Thanks be to God


Psalm: 119:33-40       Read responsively

33 Educate me, God, in the way of your statutes, and I’ll keep them to the end.

34 Give me discernment, that I may observe your Law and obey it with all my heart.

35 Lead me in the path of your commands— that is where I’ll find joy.

36 Draw my heart to your decrees and not toward selfish gain.

37 Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things; make me alive in your way.

38 Fulfill for your faithful your promise to those who fear you.

39 Take away the reproach which I dread, for your ordinances are good.

40 See how I long for your precepts! In your justice give me life.


Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 3:10-11, 16-23

10 By the grace God gave me, I acted as a wise architect and laid the foundation. Someone else is doing the building. But each of you doing the building must do it carefully. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than the one already in place—Jesus Christ…


16 Aren’t you aware that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 if you destroy God’s temple, God will destroy you—for the temple of God is holy, and you are that temple. 18 Don’t delude yourselves. Any who think themselves wise in a worldly way had better become fools. 19 In that way you will really be wise, for the wisdom of this world is absurdity with God—as scripture says, “God knows how empty are the thoughts of the wise,” 20 and again, “God is not convinced by the arguments of the wise.” 21 So there is nothing to boast about in anything human, 22 whether it be Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all these are yours, 23 and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.


Anthem - "This Is a Day of New Beginnings"; Music: Carlton R. Young;  Text: Brian Wren; Grace Choir


Gospel Acclamation

Gospel: Matthew 5:38-48

P   The holy gospel according to Matthew, the fifth chapter.

C    Glory to you, O Lord.


38 “You’ve heard the commandment, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, offer no resistance whatsoever when you’re confronted with violence. when someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn and offer the other. 40 If anyone wants to sue you for your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 Should anyone press you into service for one mile, go two miles. 42 Give to those who beg from you. And don’t turn your back on those who want to borrow from you. 43 “You have heard it said, ‘Love your neighbor—but hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for your persecutors. 45 This will prove that you are children of God. For God makes the sun rise on bad and good alike; God’s rain falls on the just and the unjust. 46 If you love those who love you, what merit is there in that? Don’t tax collectors do as much? 47 And if you greet only your sisters and brothers, what is so praiseworthy about that? Don’t Gentiles do as much? 48 Therefore be perfect, as abba God in heaven is perfect.


P   The gospel of the Lord.

C   Praise to you, O Christ.

A brief silence.

A   Creating God, help us to care for all of your creation, to enjoy the beauty of all the earth: sunsets, stars and rainbows. Lord in your mercy,

C   Hear our prayer.

A   Parent God, bless all who are parents, the family and staff of the Grace Infant Care Center and all who have created families.  Lord, in your mercy,

C   Hear our prayer.


A  Help our civic leaders to bring justice to a war torn world and cultivate peace and love beyond borders.  Be with our bishops Elizabeth and Mark, our pastor Megan and all the staff and leaders of our congregation.  Help us to follow your path and grow in faithfulness.  Lord in your mercy,

C   Hear our prayer.

A   Help us to love each other, our neighbors and care for those who will soon join us.  Give us patience and help us have others the benefit of the doubt as we journey together.  Lord in your mercy,

C   Hear our prayer.

A   For whom and what else do the people of Grace pray?

(Please offer - silently or aloud- petitions to God.  End spoken petitions with “Hear our prayer.”)

P Our prayers rise like incense and are held by a loving God who yearns for us to be our best.  May we find comfort, hope and love in our days to come. 

C  Amen.


Peace

The presiding minister and the assembly greet each other in the peace of the risen Christ.

C   And also with you.

The people may greet one another with the sign of Christ’s peace, and may say, “Peace be with you” or similar words.

Offertory:  "Jesus, Joy of Loving Hearts"; W. Gardiner

After the offering is gathered, the assembly stands.


Offering Prayer

A    Let us pray.

C    God, bless our diversity gifts.  Beyond our times, talents and treasures, we give thanks for the relationships and visions that we bring into this holy place.  May our relationships with money, giving and receiving become one of the ways we live our faith in the world.  Amen.


Communion



P    It is indeed right, our duty and our joy, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks and praise . . . we praise your name and join their unending hymn:



P  In the night in which he was betrayed,

our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks;

broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying:

Take and eat; this is my body, given for you.

Do this for the remembrance of me.

Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks,

and gave it for all to drink, saying:

This cup is the new covenant in my blood,

shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin.

Do this for the remembrance of me.


The Lord’s Prayer

C  Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever. Amen

Gathering In
Welcome
Call to Worship
To the tune of Blackbird
Welcome to worship this Sunday night
God is here and the time is right
breathe the breath of life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Welcome to worship this Sunday night
Breathing as one, together we will sing
Let the church bells ring
You were only waiting for this moment to free.

Prepare your hearts
Prepare your hearts
For the words of God bring change
Prayer
Loving God, on this feast day of St. Gerard, we pray for all parents, the families, children and staff at Grace Infant Child Care, those who care for aging parents and those who longed for or ended relationships with children they were unable to raise.  Be with the members and staff, friends and colleagues of Grace Lutheran and the chosen family we create whenever we share bread, wine and water with each other.  Amen.
Word
The first reading is from Numbers, the 27th chapter:
16‘May you, the God of the spirits of all living creatures, appoint someone to lead the congregation 17who will go out and come in before them, who will lead them out and bring them in, so that the congregation will not be like sheep without a shepherd.’
The Second reading is from 1st Corinthians, the 3rd chapter:
9 We are God’s servants, working together; you are God’s field, God’s building.  10 By the grace God gave me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it. Each builder must choose with care how to build on it. 11For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ.
Gospel Acclamation
To the tune of Yellow Submarine
Hallelujah and praise be to Christ
praise be to Christ, praise be to Christ
Hallelujah and praise be to Christ
praise be to Christ, praise be to Christ
The Gospel of the day is read.
A reading for the Gospel of Luke the 1st Chapter:
36And now, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; she who was thought to be infertile is now in her sixth month. 37 Nothing will be impossible with God.’ 38Then Mary said, ‘Here am I, the servant of God; let it be with me according to your word.’ Then the angel departed from her.
39 In those days Mary set out and went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country, 40where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42and exclaimed with a loud cry, ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. 43
Hallelujah and praise be to Christ
praise be to Christ, praise be to Christ
Hallelujah and praise be to Christ
praise be to Christ, praise be to Christ

Words are shared by Seminarian, Daniel Tisdell.

Installation of a Pastor
Presentation
The assembly stands. The pastor to be installed and a representative of the calling body come before the Dean of the San Francisco Conference and the assembly.  The dean addresses the assembly.
Having been authorized by the church to install Megan Marie Rohrer
our co-worker in the gospel, as pastor,
I now ask for certification of this call.
A representative of the calling body addresses the presiding minister.
After prayerful deliberation,
we, of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church
have called Megan Marie Rohrer as pastor.
I present Megan and this letter certifying the call.
The representative gives the dean the letter certifying that the call has been received and accepted.
The representative moves aside, and the assembly is seated.
Address and Questions
The presiding Dean addresses the pastor being installed.
A reading from John: Jesus said, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you. Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."  (John 20:21-23)
A reading from Matthew: Jesus said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
A reading from First Timothy: Set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Attend to the public reading of scripture, to exhorting, to teaching. Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you through prophecy with the laying on of hands by the council of elders. Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress. Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; continue in these things, for in doing this you will save both yourself and your hearers. (1 Timothy 4:12-16)
The dean questions the pastor being installed.

I will, and I ask God to help me.
Will you be diligent in your study of the holy scriptures
and in your use of the means of grace?

nourish them with the word and sacraments,
and lead them by your own example in faithful service and holy living?
Response:
I will, and I ask God to help me.
Will you give faithful witness in the world,
that God's love may be known in all that you do?
Response:
I will, and I ask God to help me.
Almighty God, who has given you the will to do these things,
graciously give you the strength and compassion to perform them.
The assembly responds:
Amen.
The assembly stands. The dean addresses the assembly.
People of God, will you receive Megan as a messenger of Jesus Christ sent to serve all people with the gospel of hope and salvation? Will you regard Megan as a servant of Christ and a steward of the mysteries of God? We will, and we ask God to help us.
Will you pray for Megan, help and honor Megan’s work, and in all things strive to live together in the peace and unity of Christ? We will, and we ask God to help us.
The dean addresses the pastor being installed.
Megan the office of pastor is now committed to you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The newly installed pastor may kneel as the dean proclaims God's blessing.
The God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, make you complete in everything good so that you may do God's will, working in you that which is pleasing in God's sight; through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
The pastor stands. The dean escorts the pastor to the place of baptism. A representative of the congregation says:
You have been called to be among us to baptize, to teach, and to forgive sins. Remind us of God’s love for all people.
They proceed to the place of the word. A representative of the congregation says:
You have been called to be among us to proclaim the good news.  Teach us of God’s hope for all people.
They proceed to the place of the meal. A representative of the congregation says:

The dean may address the assembly with these or similar words.
People of God, I present to you Megan, your pastor.
 Let us welcome Megan in the name of Christ.
The assembly may offer acclamation with applause.
