Seventh Sunday After Epiphany
February 24, 2019
"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

  • 1/13:  The Rule of Life & Turn
  • 1/20: Learn

This Sunday's Anthem:

We Are Called
David Haas

1. Come! live in the light!
Shine with the joy and the love of the Lord!
We are called to be light for the kingdom,
to live in the freedom of the city of God!

Refrain: We are called to act with justice.
We are called to love tenderly.
We are called to serve one another, to walk humbly with God.

2. Come! Open your heart!
Show your mercy to all those in fear!
We are called to be hope for the hopeless,
so hatred and violence will be no more!

3. Sing! Sing a new song!
Sing of that great day when all will be one!
God will reign and we'll walk with each other as sisters and brothers united in love!
"We are called" (1988) captures the energy and enthusiasm of the folk song style. Each of the three stanzas exhorts the singer with an imperative verb: "Come! Live in the light!" "Come! Open your heart!" "Sing! Sing a new song!" Folk songs, especially those growing out of the 1960s and 1970s, urge us to action. The action here is inspired by Micah 6:8: ". . . what the Lord really wants from you: He wants you to promote justice, to be faithful, and to live obediently before your God." 

The first stanza invites us to "Live in the light" of God's grace and freedom and to reflect that light with "joy and . . . love." Stanza two, following naturally in the spirit of the first stanza, invites us to "Open our hearts" to "mercy" for all who live in "fear," "hatred," and "blindness." The final stanza invites us to an eschatological vision of the future when "all will be one!"
