Welcome to DisciplesNet Worship! This week's worship blends four lectionary scriptures for this week. In doing so, Rev. Dr. Audrey Borschel helps us explore some of the ways God has worked to help people grasp some understanding of God's love and powers of restoration.
Along with our message are a moving Pastor's prayer by Bob Shaw, and popular hymn favorites: "Wonderful Words of Life," "In the Bulb," "Softly and Tenderly," and "Here at Thy Table, Lord."
We hope you will join us for communion (breaking of the bread)--for this 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 (30 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.
