Preparing for Worship
“Wherever two or more are gathered in my name,” Jesus said, “there am I in the midst of them.” Whether you’re gathered around the breakfast table with your family, sitting in your favorite recliner, or taking a walk outside, we assemble Jesus’ name bearing witness to the Church’s identity and mission as Christ’s body in the world.
As you prepare for
worship, light a candle. This simple act reminds us of God’s presence in this
hour of worship and the entrance of Jesus Christ, the light of the world, into
our midst. This candle will remind you of Christ’s light and love, and it will
also be a symbol to signify our togetherness despite our separation, during
this time. I invite you to share a picture of your candle and your “worship
space.” Please also email me your picture at firstname.lastname@example.org; on Sunday
afternoon, I will share images of our togetherness.

A Holy Week Book Discussion: Join Adam for a Holy Week discussion of the book, “Did God Kill Jesus?” by theologian and writer, Tony Jones. “Many Christians believe that God the Father demanded his only Son die a cruel, gruesome death to appease His wrath, since humanity is so irredeemably sinful and therefore repugnant to God. Tony argues that this understanding is actually a medieval invention and not what the Bible really teaches. He looks beyond medieval convictions and liberates how we see Jesus's death on the cross from this restrictive paradigm.” The books can be purchased in the office for $10. You can also find the title on Kindle and other eBook platforms.
Adam will be by himself in the parking lot at church Sunday, April 12, at 7 a.m. and will preach an Easter sermon. I will also offer a blessing to each car, remaining 8 ft away. You will NOT need to leave your vehicle.
