We will share communion this Sunday. For those on Zoom and Facebook, have a little something with you. All those in person, we will have a little something for you to take with you. For those on Zoom and Facebook, I’m working on virtual gifts for you as well. I figure that you would not want a cookie picture and sending you cookies seems a little crummy – literally. What do you think of a high quality images you can use for your phone or computer wallpaper? Send me your ideas and I’ll start to figure out what we can do (images of prayer, the beauty of the Earth, the stars, storms, let me know what you think.)
*The Covid-19 Delta variant requires us to change plans about masks. Everyone will need masks for in person worship. I have been given some N95 masks that are available to all for use against the variant and the smoke. I can mail them to anyone who needs some. For those in person, you can have one for worship and take another for the days ahead.
All: We thank you, God, for your presence as we remember the Living Jesus. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, you are among us still, in each of us, and in all of your creation. Bless us to more fully live as your people. Amen.
pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but you are mighty;
hold me with your powerful hand.
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
feed me ‘til I want no more,
feed me ‘til I want no more.
where the healing waters flow.
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,
ever be my strength and shield,
ever be my strength and shield.
bid my anxious fears subside.
Death of death, and hell’s Destruction,
land me safe on Canaan’s side.
Songs of praises, songs of praises
I will ever sing to you,
I will ever sing to you.
