Welcome to DisciplesNet weekly worship #153. This week Pastor Anita Cobb shares a message about God's presence with us even when life changes, even when we may feel like a plant that is uprooted. Genesis 12:1-3 is the text, sharing the story of Abram who would become Abraham.
Our worship time of 30 minutes includes scripture, songs, and communion with the theme of God's presence, no matter what we do, where we go, or what happens to us in life.
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.
