“Be Stirred to Action in Their Memory”

Memorial Day2A Prayer of Confession for us all:
God of every nation, as we remember those that gave their lives for our sake, let us be stirred to action in their memory. We confess that we have not done all that is possible to promote peace and justice in our world. We have not loved our neighbors, let alone our enemies. Forgive us for failing to live up to your commandments. Empower us to work for your Kingdom in this world, and welcome us by your grace into your Kingdom in the next.

In A Challenging World, There Is Cause for Celebration

In a wohoperld filled with violence and war, we celebrate the promise of peace.
In a world filled with tyranny and oppression, we celebrate the promise of justice.
In a world filled with hunger and greed, we celebrate the promise of plenty for all.
Our hope is in the name of the Almighty God, the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer of Heaven and Earth. Our hope is in the Son, Jesus Christ.

Praise God!

You hpraiseave turned my mourning into dancing;
you have taken off my sackcloth
   and clothed me with joy,
      so that my soul may praise you and not be silent.
   O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.”

Answer the Lord

The trumpet of the Lord sounds,
Calling you to examine your soul,
For you have not only met temptation,
You have felt its grip.
The trumpet of the Lord sounds,
Calling you to mend your ways,
For you have not only committed sin,
You have felt its sting.
The trumpet of the Lord sounds,
Calling you to give your heart,
For you have not only witnessed forgiveness,
You have felt its power!
Come and answer God’s call.
Be transformed by His everlasting love.

The Basics

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

The Gift of Love – Love Keeps No Record

heart and crossIf I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

 Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant  or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;  it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end.  For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part;  but when the complete comes, the partial will come to an end. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.  And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.

1Corinthians 13: 1-15
