ecclesia song

We are called to faith, gathered in love
Sent with hope to change the world
We are called to faith, gathered in love
ecclesia, ecclesia, Church at the Chip

   Called to Faith, Gathered in Love,
   Sent with Hope – ecclesia!

Psalm 64

1    Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
        preserve my life from dread of the enemy.
2    Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,
         from the throng of evildoers,
3    who whet their tongues like swords,
        who aim bitter words like arrows,
4    shooting from ambush at the blameless,
        shooting at him suddenly and without fear.

5    They hold fast to their evil purpose;
        they talk of laying snares secretly,
      thinking, "Who can see them?"
6       They search out injustice,
     saying, "We have accomplished a diligent search."

         For the inward mind and heart of a man are deep.

7     But God shoots his arrow at them;
         they are wounded suddenly.
8    They are brought to ruin, with their own tongues
      turned against them;
         all who see them will wag their heads.
9    Then all mankind fears;
         they tell what God has brought about
         and ponder what he has done.

10   Let the righteous one rejoice in the Lord
         and take refuge in him!
      Let all the upright in heart exult!

Welcome Table

   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table
   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table one of these days
   I'm gonna sit at the welcome table
   Sit at the welcome table one of these days, one of these days

I'm gonna feast on milk and honey
I'm gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days
I'm gonna feast on milk and honey
Gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days


All God's children gonna sit together
All God's children gonna sit togehter one of these days, hallelujah
All God's children gonna sit together
All of God's children gonna sit together one of these days, one of these days


All the People Said Amen

You are not alone, if you are lonely 
When you feel afraid, you're not the only
We are all the same, in need of mercy
To be forgiven and be free
It's all you got to lean on
But thank God it's all you need

   And all the people said Amen
   And all the people said Amen
   Give thanks to the Lord for his love never ends
   And all the people said Amen

If you think you're poor, well it don't matter
Weak or strong, we know love is what we're after
We're all broken but we're all in this together
God knows we stumble and fall

And he so loved the world he sent his son to save us all


Blessed are the poor in spirit who are torn apart
Blessed are the persecuted and the pure in heart
Blessed are the people hungry for another start
For theirs is the Kingdom, the Kingdom of God

   Chorus (2x)

Your Hands

I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn't there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That you would take my pain away
That you would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crooked lie
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine

   When my world is shaking
   Heaven stands
   When my heart is breaking
   I never leave your hands

When you walked upon the Earth
You healed the broken, lost, and hurt
I know you hate to see me cry
One day you will set all things right
Yea, one day you will set all things right


Your hands
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still

   Chorus (2x)

Canaanites and Bread Crumbs
The World's True King: A Study in Matthew

Matthew 15:21-28
Steve Gilbertson

Jesus is making a great name for himself by his provocative teaching and his  
incredible works of power. But he appears reluctant to heal in the story of the
Canaanite woman. In fact, he appears positively rude! Why is this? And why does
Matthew include this story? We'll find out today...

Matthew 15:21-28

21 And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And
behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, "Have mercy on me,
O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon." 23 But he did not
answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away, for she
is crying out after us." 24 He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of
Israel." 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me." 26 And he answered,
"It is not right to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." 27 She said, "Yes, Lord,
yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus answered
her, "O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire." And her daughter was
healed instantly.

29 Jesus went on from there and walked beside the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the 
mountain and sat down there. 30 And great corwds came to him, bringing with them the lame,
the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed
them, 31 so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy,
the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel.

32 Then Jesus called his disciples to him, and said, "I have compassion on the crowd because 
they have been with me now three days and have nothing to eat. And I am unwilling to send 
them away hungry, lest they faint on the way." 33 And the disciples said to him, "Where are we
to get enough bread in such a desolate place to feed so great a crowd?" 34 And Jesus said to them,
"How many loaves do you have?" They said, "Seven, and a few small fish." 35 And directing the crowd
to sit down on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he 
broke them and gave them to the disciples and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 And they 
all ate and were satisfied. And they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over. 38 Those  
who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And after sending away the crowds,
he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan.
