We invite you to join us for DisciplesNet worship #101, with Rev. Bob Shaw's exploring the difficult scripture of the Syrophoenician woman's encounter with Jesus and our call to go into all the world to share the Good News of God's love for us. What does this mean in each of our lives?
Along with our message we are share several musical specials, featuring the Thomas A. Dorsey's "Old Ship of Zion," from Dean Phelps new CD, Picking the Faith. Also, our worship opens with Southport Christian Church quartet singing, "I Will Sing of My Redeemer"by Selah, with Jillian Reisinger, Scott Leis, Leah Trigg, and Sue Dykes.
Our worship includes a time of communion (breaking of the bread)--for which we extend the invitation given by Jesus Christ to all who would come. If you would like to share with us in this time at the table that passes all boundaries of place, time, and walls, then we ask that you prepare a wafer, cracker, or bread and a drink, and we ask that our blessing will extend to where you are. If you are unable to eat or drink, use a symbolic gesture or mental symbols of joining with us.
We hope you will join us for this short time of worship (28 minutes), and will be blessed by participating. Please tell friends, family, and others you know about our online church that is here with doors that never close, walls as wide as the world, and always room at the table.
If you would like to chat with one of our pastors, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
