DisciplesNet Worship #68, was released the week of the Super Bowl of American football, being held a few miles from the DisciplesNet worship center in Indianapolis, Indiana. We hope you will be blessed by our worship about God’s blessing of being “Uncommon.” Our short time of worship combines several favorites, including the text from Isaiah 40:21-35 (for I will lift you up on eagle’s wings) and two favorite hymns of our congregation, "On Eagle’s Wings," and "Borning Cry."
Our message by Deb Phelps looks at success and failure a worldly as well as God's perspective, drawing upon the world of athletics, but just everyday instances when we have the opportunity to feel like "the hero or the goat."
We work hard to design our worship so that you will have opportunities to participate (and keep working how to best do this.) If you would like, we hope you will join us in reciting our scripture, saying the Lord’s prayer, and making a joyful noise along with us on our hymns.
With our hymns, we can’t hear each other, but try to use our imagination to hear what God hears when we join our voices together around the world.
One of our message’s opening photos shows a world map with some countries colored in blue. Those countries are the ones from where people have been connecting to our DisciplesNet worships. So far, this includes people in 86 countries who are gathering here at this place called DIsicplesNet.
