SUNDAY DECEMBER 27, 2020
Wherever you find yourselves, I trust God will find your worship to be BLESS-ED. May God’s spirit live inside of you today.
The worship committee has invited me to do a sermon series on the theme of my choice:
For Janaury, It will be ….. FAITH 101
January 3 ” GOD “
January 10 ” The Bible”
January 17 ” Salvation”
January 24 ” End Times”
As you listen to the services, think about how someone who is not a person of faith might hear them. Think also of someone who has left the faith how might they hear them ?
Are the sermons inviting and challenging ?
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
The prayer below are the words from a song in Sing the Story hymnal number 15.
Hope is a candle once lit by the prophets
Never consumed though it burns through the years
Dim in the daylight of power and privilege
When they are gone hope will shine on
Peace is a candle to show us a pathway
Threatened by gusts from our rage and our greed
Friend feel no envy for those in the shadows
Violence and force their dead end course
Love is a candle whose light makes a circle
Where every face is the face of a friend
Widen the circle by sharing and giving
God’s Holy dare love everywhere
Joy is a candle of mystery and laughter
Mystery of light that is born in the dark
Laughter at hearing the voice of an angel
Ever so near casting out fear
Christ is the light that the prophets awaited
Christ is the lion the lamb and the child
Christ is the love and the mystery and laughter
Candles make way Christ is the day
