Weekly Recommended Resource

Calvin for Armchair


by Christopher Elwood

“This is as winsome introduction

to John Calvin as one can find.

It is brief, but covers the whole

range of his life and theology. It

is not only lucid, but also written

in a lively style. The analysis is

accurate and faithful to Calvin,

and at the same time post-Calvin

developments — “Calvin’s children”

— are related in a suggestive way

to Calvin’s own life and thought.”

— I. John Hesselink, Albertus C

Van Raalte Professor of Systematic

Theology Emeritus, Western

Theological Seminary

Global Missions

Welcome to worship!

Today is Kirkin’

O’ the Tartans, a

celebration of the

Scottish heritage

of the Presbyterian

Church. Our worship

will be a celebration

of the great tradition

that shapes who we

are today.

Based on Rev. 4:8,

Holy, Holy, Holy was

written by Anglican

minister, poet and

Bishop of Calcutta,

Reginald Heber, just

one year before he

died in 1826 at the

age of 43. Notice the

descriptions of God

and the magnificent

picture of heavenly

worship around God’s

throne. As we join that

heavenly worship, for

what do you praise

God today What do

you bring with you to

worship that you need

to give to God

Prayer of Confession

Almighty God, with our lips we easily acknowledge that

you are Lord of all things. You are Lord of history, guiding

nations and rulers. You are Lord of the created world,

giving sun and rain and changing the seasons. And yet

we fail to recognize you as Lord of the small things that

concern us. We doubt your power over our jobs and

relationships. We question your interest in our illnesses

and heartaches. Forgive our small vision of who you are.

Remind us that all power, glory and honor belong to you.

Open our eyes that we might see your mighty hand at

work in this world and in our lives. Hear us now as we

continue our confession in silence . . .

*Declaring Our Faith

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker

of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and


And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,

begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of

Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one

substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Originally crafted

in 325 AD at the

Council of Nicaea,

this creed is the

most ecumenical of

creeds shared by

Eastern Orthodox,

Roman Catholic,

and most Protestant

churches. The

version printed here

was finalized in

381 AD.

Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from

heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin

Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under

Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day

He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended

into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father;

and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick

and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life;

who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the

Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who

spoke by the prophets.

And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I

acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look

for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to

come. Amen.

*Congregational Response

Gloria Patri (all singing) .....................................................greatorex

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

World without end. Amen. Amen.

The Tartan Presentation

On behalf of Scots everywhere, we raise this Tartan before

Almighty God in appreciation of our heritage, and ask His

blessing on His servants. In the name of the Father, and of

the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

**Life of the Congregation

Pastoral Prayer and the Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors,

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.


Mendelssohn loved

Scotland. On his

first trip there, he

wrote to a friend

“God is so kind

in Edinburgh”,

and he spent 3

weeks hiking the

highlands. He

premiered his

“Scottish” (3rd)

Symphony in 1842,

four years before

the Elijah oratorio.

And the glory of the Lord ever shall reward you!
