The Divine Shepherd
A Psalm of David
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff — they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
Let us pray
Let your wisdom be our guide, O God, in these uncertain times. Allow that wisdom to wash over us and provide a path for your global village to move forward in the midst of this pandemic. Grant strength to those first responders and the medical staff who are overwhelmed. Grant comfort to all those grieving over the loss of loved ones. Grant knowledge to those in positions of power that they may make the best decisions that affect so many people. Grant security to those who are facing job loss and those businesses that are feeling the economic loss. Grant patience to those researchers developing a vaccine. May you offer your unconditional love to this your creation.
We prayer for our new premier, Dr. Andrew Furey. May you be with him as he steers our province during this difficult pandemic and economic time. May all political parties work together for the benefit of the people. Loving God be with Premier Furey’s Cabinet and may they feel supported by the province.
We pray, O God, for the people of Lebanon. Following the earth shattering explosion that caused so many deaths. For those plunged into grief over loss allow your love to surround them. May the global community respond to help the people of Beirut.
We pray for ourselves, for First United Church congregation. For those enjoying their stay-cation and rediscovering our province. May you God travel with them and keep them safe. For those in hospital or sick at home may these prayers allow them to feel loved and supported. Loving God watch over us all. Amen

Seasons of Our Faith
As Christians we move through the church calendar each year, giving us an organized way to celebrate, reflect on and respond to the life and teachings of Jesus.
The seasons take us through the birth, life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus, being baptized by the Holy Spirit, then emerging into a long season of renewal and discipleship.
So, what are you doing Sunday morning?
Feel like singing? Want to celebrate God's word?
