Prelude

Welcome to Celebrating the Path of Humility
Laura Collins

Inviting our Roots

(all sing)
"Day by Day"

Day by day, day by day,
O, dear Lord, three things I pray:
To see thee more clearly,
Love thee more dearly,
Follow thee more nearly,
Day by day


Calling of the Spirit from the Sacred Directions
Yona FrenchHawk

Song to Celebrate the Path of Humility
(feeding the hungry)
"The Garden Song"


Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow.
All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground.
Inch by inch, row by row,  someone bless these seeds I sow.
Someone warm them from below, 'til the rain comes tumbling down.

Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be free,
'Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

Pulling weeds and picking stones, man is made of dreams and bones.
Feel the need to grow my own 'cause the time is close at hand.
Grain for grain, sun and rain, find my way in nature's chain,
tune my body and my brain to the music from the land. 

When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we will not be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come round right. 

Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow.
All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground.
And Inch by inch, row by row, Someone bless these seeds I sow.
Someone warm them from below, 'til the rain comes tumbling down.
(w/m: Traditional John Denver)

Singing & Sharing a Holy Peace
"Get Ready, My Soul"

Get ready, my soul - I'm diving in
Get ready, my soul - I'm diving in
To the deepest kind of love
To the sweetest kind of life
Get ready
Get ready, My soul
 
Everything I've ever done
Everything I've ever seen
Everything I've lost or won
Everything I've ever dreamed
Has brought me here:
To the present moment,
Here: To a new beginning,
Here:  And I'm seeing life so clearly now
 
Get ready, my soul - I'm diving in
Get ready, my soul - I'm diving in
To the deepest kind of love
To the sweetest kind of life
Get ready
Get ready, My soul

(w/m Daniel Nahmod)
 
LEARNING

Matthew 6:16-21
And whenever you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces so as to show others that they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that your fasting may be seen not by others but by your God who is in secret; and your Creator who sees in secret will reward you. Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Reader: This is ancient wisdom and holy word.
People: Thanks be to all that is wise and holy.
 
Reader: All creation is wisdom and holy word.
People: All creation sings of wisdom and god. Hallelujah!

  Dedicating Our Gifts to God
 
(all sing)

"Blue Boat Home"

Sun, my sail and moon, my rudder
As I ply the starry sea
Leaning over the edge in wonder
Casting questions into the deep
Drifting here with my ship s companions
All we kindred pilgrim souls
Making our way by the lights of the heavens
In our beautiful blue boat home
(words: Peter Mayer/music: Pritchard)


BLESSING

Benediction for the path of humility ahead...
(all sing)

"For the Beauty of the Earth"

For the beauty of the earth,
For the glory of the skies
For the love which from our birth,
Over and around us lies, over and around us lies,
Lord of all to thee we raise,
this our joyful hymn of praise
(words: F.S. Pierpoint / music: John Rutter)

This Week's Quotes

Humility means sticking close to the earth...Humility in theology means discovering the sacred on native soil.
~ Sam Keen, To A Dancing God

Humility does not rob people or take anything from them.  Rather, it holds together everything in love.
~ Hildegard of Bingen

Humility comes from the root word humus, which means earth, soil.  The dictionary defines humus as the dark organic material in soils, produced by the decomposition of vegetable or animal matter and essential to the fertility of the earth.
~ Tim Burkett

As long as we are able to be extravagant we will be
hugely and damply extravagant.
Then we will drop foil by foil
to the ground. This is our
unalterable task, and we do it joyfully.
~ Mary Oliver, "When the Roses Speak, I Pay Attention," Thirst

The way of humility, of reconnecting to the humus, remembers the sacred Ground of being within us all.
~ John Philip Newell
