New Year's Day Worship

This is a brief devotional service for the beginning of a new year. The text is Romans 5:5, and I've adapted an old song from the Pilgrim Hymnal, Great God, We Sing That Mighty Hand for the 21st century. The opening prayer is from Common Order, the Church of Scotland's main worship resource. It's from the office for morning prayer, tweeked very slightly for a new year instead of a new morning. 

Here's the order found in the video that follows at the end of the post:
  • 00:00 Chimes
  • 00:33 Welcome
  • 01:10 Call to Worship: Hebrews 13.8
  • 01:27 Opening Prayer
  • 02:10 Song: Great God, We Praise Your Gentle Hand
  • 03:10 Scripture Reading: Romans 5.1-5
  • 03:56 Message
  • 07:22 Closing Prayer
  • 07:52 Lord's Prayer
  • 08:22 Benediction in Song: Go Now in Peace
 As always, it's best to watch the video in full-screen mode.
