Lenten Devotion 2nd Sunday

Weekly Family Prayer 2nd Week of Lent

Covenant God, Sometimes, when we can’t see, touch, or hear you, we wonder, “Are you really there?” Then we remember the many ways you have shown us your love and we see the many things that reveal your creative presence in our lives. We feel the love in a hug from our mom, dad, or friend; and we know that this is what your love must feel like. We see the stars shining in the sky above or watch the sunrise, and we are amazed by your beautiful work that makes these things possible.Lord, during this week of our Lenten journey, help us find ways to remember that you are with us. We know that this is big work. Help us practice remembering as we get ready for the mystery of Easter. During this season, help us learn how to trust you, love you, and share your love with others. Lord, thank you for being with our family as we travel together, preparing our hearts and minds to enter into the mystery of Easter. Bless us in our work. It’s in your holy name, we pray. Amen..

Lenten Devotion 1st Week

Wesley Covenant Prayer 

Recite daily 
I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, 
rank me with whom you will;
put me to doing, put me to suffering;
let me be employed for you, or laid aside for you,
exalted for you, or brought low for you;
let me be full,
let me be empty,
let me have all things,
let me have nothing.
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things
to your pleasure and disposal.
And now, glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours. So be it.
And the covenant now made on earth, 
let it be ratified in heaven.
Amen

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love,  as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:1-2

Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.O divine Master, 
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
it is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.                                                                                          

“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34-35

Advent Christmas Eve, 2019

Christmas Eve 

Good news! Good news!

Our hopes and fears and all of years

     have met in this place tonight.

And we have beheld the glory of the coming of God’s Messiah.

Sing for joy! Salvation has come!

Light the Christ Candle

We light the Christ candle as a sign to the world

    that today, in the City of David, a Savior is born,

    who is Christ the Lord.

We no longer have to fear the darkness

     for our Light has come.

Glory to God in the highest heaven! 

And on earth, peace to all of God’s children!

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Amen.

All: O come, Desire of nations bind all peoples in one heart and mind.  From dust thou brought us forth to life; deliver us from earthly strife.

 Our souls magnify the Lord and our spirits rejoice in God for God has looked with favor on us, God’s servants.

God has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly. God has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty.

God of Justice, God of Peace, we open our hearts to you. Give us grace to be instruments of your righteousness.

Give us courage to turn away from distractions and distortions and turn toward the home you have made, are making, and will complete through Christ.

All: We, God’s people, sing songs of joy with the prophet, “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my whole being shall exult in my God.” (Isaiah 61:10, NRSV)

Another mission project that will be on-going throughout the year is “Shoe Boxes for Kids”.

These boxes will contain items small enough to fit into a shoe box that would be used by children, such as pens, pencils, crayons, note paper, stickers, toothbrush, toothpaste. 

The receptacle to hold these items will be located in the nave. 

The filled boxes will be sent to children in the U.S. and around the world.   

Healthy Personal Hygiene Background

Future ‘Shoe Boxes’ will be for Women, and for Men.  If you have new personal hygiene items for Women or Men you can put them in the receptacle at any time.  We will separate as needed.

Second Sunday of Advent

In those days a fiery preacher from the desert came to tell the people:

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near!”

He is the one the prophet Isaiah spoke about when he said:

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:

    ‘Prepare the way of the Lord,

      make his paths straight.”

We light the second Advent candle in preparation for the coming of the Messiah,

 in anticipation of the fullness of God’s justice and righteousness,

 and remembering the call of John the Baptist

    to make paths straight,

    repent of our sin,

    and live holy lives devoted to God.

Light the candle

Come, Lord Jesus.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Amen.

Covenant God, Sometimes, when we can’t see, touch, or hear you, we wonder, “Are you really there?” Then we remember the many ways you have shown us your love and we see the many things that reveal your creative presence in our lives. We feel the love in a hug from our mom, dad, or friend; and we know that this is what your love must feel like. We see the stars shining in the sky above or watch the sunrise, and we are amazed by your beautiful work that makes these things possible.

Lord, during this week of our Lenten journey, help us find ways to remember that you are with us. We know that this is big work. Help us practice remembering as we get ready for the mystery of Easter. During this season, help us learn how to trust you, love you, and share your love with others.

Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, 
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
it is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.                                                                                         “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
