This past week has been one of heartbreaking violence, shootings, bombings, destruction in various places of the world, with hundreds killed. As our eyes turn to the sins of racism and violence against those with different religious beliefs, we wonder how the world could have gotten so far removed from Jesus’ teachings, “Beloved, let us love one another because love is of God.”
Our worship is designed to bring a sense of peace and hope amidst these times, with reminders of God’s peace that passes all human understanding. We hope that you will join us for this short time of inspiring message, song, and prayer.
Our worship is 28 minutes long. 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.
