Sunday Worship April 7, 2024

Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!  With the marvel of the resurrection behind and within us and the marvel of total eclipse in front of us, we approach this weekend profoundly aware of our place in the universe.  Maybe some of you will be venturing north into the “path of totality” of the solar eclipse on Monday; maybe some of you will avoid the predicted crowds.  Hearing news of an earthquake centered in New Jersey, there is a lot of speculation and scientific calculation regarding atmospheric and geologic changes, and no wonder.  We are wowed by cosmic events.  Still, we live in the day-to-day and often wonder how to be.  In very direct language and with symbols of light and dark that are wonderfully coordinated with this week’s events, scripture for tomorrow invites us to regard closely how it is that we respond to wonder and to our belief that our good God brings it.  How, like the disciples, do we question and how do we move forward in faith?  Do we become something or someone new in response to the glory that we see?  What does this look like? 

With tomorrow being the first Sunday of the month, we will celebrate the sacrament of Communion, in which we celebrate the very present way in which the Spirit moves in us, while remembering what Jesus has done for us.  If you are worshipping from home, please join us by setting aside some bread or a cracker and some juice.  We are together in love.

Blessings and peace, Lisa
