Did you ever see a sign looming before you, and just knew: It’s time to turn around and go a different way? Sooner or later, most all of us have that experience. The Apostle Paul had a powerful sign, and because of it changed plans quickly for a trip to Macedonia.
This week’s worship looks at such moments, the game changers. Our message, brought to us by Rev. Charles Webb, comes from Acts 16:1-15, the story of Paul and his meeting up with Lydia, maker of purple cloth. We invite you to weave this in with your own story.
We hope that you will join us with this inspiring message, song, and prayer.
Our worship is 28 minutes long, and as we do each week, our closing moments together include a time of communion (breaking of the bread). We invite you to participate if you would like with some type of actual bread and drink you supply, or these elements held in your mind. You may also meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me." All are welcome at our table.
