Whether you join us masked-up in the sanctuary or from the livestream–we’ll rejoice in the house of the Lord, bound together by shared worship. Worship is our gift to God–but as we give it away, we nourish and strengthen our spirits.
And in the House of the Lord we find wisdom for these days. Jesus spoke words of peace and revelation to his first disciples–who also lived in turbulent and uncertain times. When their spirits were overwhelmed by fear and anxiety, he did not shame or scold them. He taught them to look around to find peace:
Consider the birds of the air–consider the Lilles of the field…neither can care for themselves but notice how extravagantly God cares for them. Remember God cares for you even more deeply.
Look around–notice the tender intimate faithfulness of God in nature and let it bear witness to you.
I hope you’ll be rejoicing in worship with me on Sunday as Nicole brings us a message of courage and consolation!
