Welcome to DisciplesNet weekly worship #151, with our special theme, "What's Love Got to Do." We put together this message, with scripture, songs, and communion to help us look at the love of God through the Holy Spirit and God's son Jesus…and the peace that comes through a life of faith.
Today we welcome Rev. Blanche Edwards in bringing our message. We also have brought back popular songs of Twana A. Harris and Dean Phelps, who sing several inspirational duets that we hope will bless you, and have you following along.
We're so glad you have found your way here and hope you will join us for this short time, 26 minutes.
As we do every week, we extend the invitation for you to join in as we celebrate the Lord's Supper, also known as breaking of the bread or communion. If you would like to share with us at the table that extends across boundaries of time, place, and structure, then we ask that you prepare a wafer, cracker, or type of bread and a small drink (we use grape juice, but even water will work). As we pray, we are praying that our blessing extends to where you are. If you are unable or prefer not to eat or drink with us at this time, you may want to meditate or use motions or mental symbol as you come together at this table of remembrance with us.
We hope that as you join us for worship you will feel a blessing from being part. Please tell friends, family, and others you know about our online church that is here with doors that are always open, walls as wide as the world, and always room at the table.
