Sunday Worship March 3, 2024

Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!  “We are better together” is a phrase registered long ago as a kind of mantra of mine.  It is rallying in unity, as one body, that distinguishes people of faith in Jesus, for whom we say we are the hands and feet.  So, as many of us set out for Augusta this morning in solidarity with people living in poverty in this, our most wealthy nation, I pray for unity of spirit and of mind.  Together we may face every challenge and, in love, conquer every evil. 

Sometimes, though, to attempt change in the face of seemingly intractable difficulty feels foolish.  If so, I invite you to join me as “a fool for Christ,” in Paul’s words.  On this Communion Sunday, when we remember the self-sacrificial gift that Jesus gave us–so that we may live–I pray we may lean into the joy and the contentment of foolishness in the eyes of the world.  In so doing, perhaps we may know righteousness in the eyes of God.  Do you wonder what we’re talking about here?  Join us in conversation to discover our joy and our strength. 

Blessings and peace, Lisa

Worship at Home Materials:  We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday. Coffee & tea are available after the church service. Masks are suggested in the sanctuary and required during the singing of hymns, as the virus spreads most easily with the projection of droplets.
