We usually start our Christmas Eve worship services with the words of Isaiah 6:9, "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light..." referring to the coming of Jesus. But sometimes it feels like we're still walking in the dark and God seems quite far away. In Psalm 77 the psalmist finds comfort in remembering how God has helped in the past. What helps you find God?
Is it really possible that we would overcome our divisions, all truly be one in Christ Jesus, and fully include all people?
There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. - Galatians 3:28
At our Sterling Community Vacation Bible School this year, our kids learned how our actions today can make waves and change the world around us as we seek to follow Jesus and be guided by the Holy Spirit.
This Sunday is brought to you by the number 5 and the color red. On Pentecost we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. We wear red on this Sunday to symbolize the work and presence of the Holy Spirit among us. What else reminds you of the Holy Spirit?
