This responsive liturgy was created for the worship of the Melodi ya Tshwane congregation of the Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa (URCSA) in the inner city of Pretoria. Like many Reformed congregations, all the way back to John Calvin's liturgy in Geneva, the congregation usually starts its liturgy with the liturgist reading Ps 121:1f, often spoken in the first person plural rather than in the singular (as in the Psalm). Since words wear thin with repetition, I decided to clarify for myself (and for the congregation) what we mean by the "hills" to which we "look up for help" rather than to our faithful creator God.
