Learning from the Followers of… Elvis?

by | Apr 19, 2020 | Sermons

 

It is my prayer that this Easter season is unveiling unexpected blessings in your lives.

As we inch a little closer to Sunday, I wanted to invite once again to join us for our online worship service.    As we gather together around our screens, we will share a similar Order of Worship, which will include the singing of the hymn, “Christ is Alive!” . . . and since the lyrics are printed in this email, I hope that you will participate in lifting your voices in song  –

Christ Is Alive
   Christ is alive!  Let Christians sing.
    His cross stands empty to the sky.
    Let streets and homes with praises ring.
    Love, drowned in death, shall never die.

    Christ is alive!  No longer bound
    to distant years in Palestine,
    but saving, healing, here and now,
    and touching every place and time.

    Not throned above, remotely high,
    untouched, unmoved by human pains
    but daily, in the midst of life,
    our Savior in the Godhead reigns

    In every insult, rift, and war,
    where color, scorn or wealth divide,
    Christ suffers still, yet loves the more
    and lives where even hope had died

    Christ is alive, and comes to bring
    Good news to this and every age,
    till earth and sky and ocean ring
    with joy, with justice, love, and praise.

Our Scripture will come from John 20:19-29.
Our meditation is entitled, “Learning from the Followers of . . . Elvis?”

If you have any prayer requests, please forward them to me in the next couple of days.

The Value of Community

In the Divine Community we will mutually embrace people who are different in race, different in gender, different in socio-economic levels, different in political understanding, different in religious beliefs.
