Sermon by Rev. Matthew van Maastricht
Scripture Text: 1 Kings 5:1-5; 8:1-13
Choir Anthem: "Peace"
Oh, Lord, through the strife bring your peace.
Where worry prevails, give release.
As the shadows linger all around,
To our troubled minds and broken land.
Let there be peace. Let there be peace.
Oh, Lord, through the dark shine your light.
Where truth seems unclear, help our sight.
Lift the veil that covers blinded eyes; give a vision of you, only wise.
Let your light shine. Let your light shine.
Lord of all mercy and grace, rain down your love in this place.
In a world where hatred seems so strong, may your grace right the wrong.
