Living Liturgy: Part 2
Beloved CoG friends of God! Here are some more ways to be “living liturgy” as we pray with our bodies at home:
  • Take a plain paper plate and something to write with. It has been a while since we have shared Holy Communion and you might be feeling kind of hungry, so this prayer is for you. On the back side of the plate, write or draw how you need God to provide for you in the coming days. On the front of the plate, write or draw how God has provided for you this week. May your eyes be open to the feast God has spread for you!
  • Assemble a jigsaw puzzle. Now take a piece of the puzzle out of the picture and keep with you to remind you of Colossians 1:17, which says that Christ holds all things together. That means Christ holds the whole world, even you. When you feel alone or falling apart, Christ holds you so you don’t have to.

Notes from Tom Paulson
We’ve been singing “Be still, my soul, the Lord is on your side” for the last three Sundays as we stream worship. Our original plan was only to sing it Sunday the 15 th responding to Pastor Reggie’s sermon, Be Still and Know You Are Broken. However, it has become a very effective theme while we are dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak, especially the closing line “Be still, my soul: the waves and wind still know, God’s voice who ruled them while he dwelt below.”

The tune, Finlandia, comes down to us originally from Finland. Written by Jean Sibelius, it became a rallying cry of the Finnish people at the turn of the last century while Finland tried to throw off Russian oppression.

Because this is such a good tune, it has attracted use to sing other poems as well. For today I want to point out ELW #887:

This is my song, O God of all the nations;
a song of PEACE (my emphasis) for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is,
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
But other hearts in other lands are beating
With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

As we continue social distancing, we do well to remember other people in other countries are dealing with just as much, and more disruption than we are. Pray for the health care workers in Spain and Italy; they’re in a situation we are trying desperately to avoid in NYC. So, for today let this be our song, a song of peace for their land and for mine.
