Please join us for the second week of the Epiphany Worship Series, God is Holding Your Life: A Journey of Assurance for the New Year. We can swing between disappointment, helplessness, and gratitude on a daily basis. There are also seasons of our lives when we feel inundated with more of one than the others. As we enter the new year, we had hoped we would be past the feeling of helplessness of the last several months. Instead, we find ourselves with ongoing prayers for help. The Book of Psalms knows all about this. Written over a span of time from exile and isolation to the rebuilding of the community, the poetry of the Psalms will accompany us in this series, reminding us that through it all, we can trust and even give our thankful gratitude because God is, indeed, holding our lives.
This Sunday Pastor, Peter Ilgenfritz will preach his sermon titled, Awe and Wonder and explore Psalm 29, “My God gives strength to the people and blesses the people with peace.” Strength and peace is the prayer of the Psalm this week. The Psalmist says “let me count the ways” that we can know the strength of the Holy One. With awe and wonder we behold the presence of God in all the elements of creation–water, fire, air, earth. And it is this glory that assures us that God, indeed, is holding our lives.
Join the Rev. Dr. Carl Scovel, retired Unitarian Universalist pastor from King’s Chapel in Boston, for a Zoom conversation on marriage and relationships this Sunday at 4 p.m. called "I Do" and It's Consequences. Copies of his book are available on Amazon or Peter will have a few copies to share. Please email Heather Lorrain at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
