With meaningful and poignant worship experiences before and after the holidays, the next regularly scheduled Service of Lament and Healing is 4:00 pm, Sunday, February 23. Gathering around the font that forms us into the community of Christ, we will have opportunity again to raise and bear together with God burdens of
- Physical and Emotional Distress
- Strained Relationships
- Social Justice Concerns
- Local, National and Global Affairs
- Ecological Apathy and Abuse
- Spiritual Struggles
The vision for these services is to provide a safe and holy space for people to express their deepest concerns, silently or aloud, in the presence of the baptismal community that is committed to sharing such concerns with God and each other, even when they are difficult to hear and possibly even conflicting points of view. The goal for the services is to promote healing and strengthen the witness of our faith community as it is centered on our trust in God’s promise of life and love for all the world through Christ Jesus our Lord, even amid the various and perhaps conflicting perspectives we may bring to that community. We gather to lay all our concerns before the Lord, trusting that the Lord will be at work through us to address those concerns for the well-being of all.
We look forward to sharing this worship experience with all who are interested. Please invite any other friends and neighbors who might like to join us too. Please see Pastor Steve, Vicar Sara or Josh Brodbeck with any questions.
