For all the saints, who from their labors rest,Who Thee by faith before the world confessed,Thy Name, O Jesus, be forever blessed.Alleluia, Alleluia! Did you remember that Halloween is “All Hallowed Eve” before “All Saints Day” on November 1? And this year, it falls on a SUNDAY! If you have lost a friend or loved
From death to life, from fear to blessing, from despair to hope … this is what we have been about in this series. In this final worship experience we will hear testimony to the “Leading Causes of Life” that we have witnessed and small or big ways in which we have refocused in order to let our lives be about life. We will pray for these life-giving practices to “go viral”–infecting our communities so that there is more connection, more meaning, more action, more blessing, and more hope.
Join us TOMORROW, October 18 online or at Field’s Park! Our guest preacher on Sunday is Candace Woods, our Minister in Discernment, who will be preaching on the the story of Gideon found in the Book of Judges. Our whole worship team looks forward to worshipping together in the park. Our weather report has a cool front slipping through tonight, so keep an eye on Facebook, as we will try to announce there if it’s too chilly to be outdoors.
This week we will begin a journey together (either in person or via zoom) Tuesday evenings from 6pm-7:30pm utilizing scripture and other writings to learn to recognize White Privilege, and how to break down the systematic racism built into the most foundational aspects of our American culture! All the information can be found here.
This Sunday finds us expanding ourselves out a little as we attempt a re-gathering—with an outdoors worship service in Manitou Springs Fields Park. On this first Sunday of this seven-week worship series, Leading Causes of Life, I plan on introducing our theme and inviting us all to adjust our lenses to recognize life rather than focus on death—and that, during this pandemic, feels like is destroying us.
