The Consecration and Dedication of Hyatt Moore’s “The Beatitudes of Jesus.”

In Consecration and Dedication

“The Beatitudes”

Hyatt Moore, Artist

Call to Worship         Exodus 28:2, 40; Psalm 27:4

And you shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty.

For Aaron’s sons you shall make coats and sashes and caps. You shall make them for glory and beauty.

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.

Invocation

Congregational worship in song

Have you ever seen the wonder
In the glimmer of first sight
As the eyes begin to open
And the blindness meets the light
If you have so say

I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living colour
I see the world your way
And I’m walking in the light

Have you ever seen the wonder
In the air of second life
Having come out of the waters
With the old one left behind
If you have so say

I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living colour
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

I see the world in grace
I see the world in gospel
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light
I’m walking in the wonder
You’re the wonder in the wild
Turning wilderness to wonder

For the beauty of the earth,

For the beauty of the skies,

For the Love which from our birth

Over and around us lies:

Christ, our God, to Thee we raise

This our Sacrifice of Praise.

 

For the beauty of each hour

Of the day and of the night,

Hill and vale, and tree and flower,

Sun and moon and stars of light:

Christ, our God, to Thee we raise

This our Sacrifice of Praise.

 

For the joy of ear and eye,

For the heart and brain’s delight,

For the mystic harmony

Linking sense to sound and sight:

Christ, our God, to Thee we raise

This our Sacrifice of Praise.

 

For Thy Bride that evermore

Lifteth holy hands above,

Offering up on every shore

This Pure Sacrifice of Love:

Christ, our God, to Thee we raise

This our Sacrifice of Praise.

Consecration and dedication

Presentation of The Beatitudes

In the nine exquisite pieces of “The Beatitudes” Hyatt Moore experienced the anointed gifting of the Holy Spirit as seen in Exodus 35:30,

Then Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, 31 and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— 32 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 33 to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts.

In this work people of every tribe, kindred, and tongue are invited into the full spectrum of the Jesus life.  Experiencing “The Beatitudes” is a call to embrace the height, depth, and breadth of the invisible qualities of Christian interiority for in them the invisible becomes visible.

We present these nine artistic renderings of The Beatitudes to be consecrated and dedicated to the praise, honor, and worship of almighty God and for service in the preparation of God’s people in discipleship.

Act of consecration and dedication

Therefore, we the members of this congregation, with glad and grateful hearts, consecrate and dedicate “The Beatitudes” to the glory and in the name of the holy and triune God.

In grateful remembrance of all who have loved and served this church in the past and for those who will serve it in the future,

With sincere gratitude, we consecrate and dedicate “The Beatitudes,”

In reverent appreciation and respect for the Master Artist who brings order out of chaos, gives beauty and creativity to His people, and who draws all people to Himself,

We consecrate and dedicate Hyatt’s artistic rendering of “Jesus’ Beatitudes,”

Trusting God that each person who experiences the beauty in these pieces will fully develop the complete spectrum of the Jesus life.

We now consecrate and dedicate “The Beatitudes” as sacred worship of God and spiritual ministry to all people.  In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, AMEN.

Congregational worship in song

Your love oh God, displayed for us
As crimson covered over sinless hands
Your majesty, for all to see
In raging storms and quiet cloudless days

Beautiful Jesus, beautiful Savior
Nothing is greater, brilliant Creator
Friend of mine

You’re powerful, above this world
The universe is under your command
Your glory shines a holy light
That leads our hearts to praise
Your holy name is on our lips

Beautiful Jesus, beautiful Savior
Nothing is greater, brilliant Creator
Friend of mine

My lips will sing, my heart will bring
Praise to you, the holy king
My lips will sing, my heart will bring
Praise to you, the holy king

Beautiful Jesus, beautiful Savior
Nothing is greater, brilliant Creator
Friend of mine

Perfect in power, matchless in glory
Nothing is greater, brilliant Creator
Friend of mine

Benediction
