May The Lord...

One of the most beautiful blessings in the Bible is given to Aaron the priest in the book of Numbers. Many who grew up in the Methodist Youth Fellowship will remember the blessing as the “MYF benediction”. This beautiful blessing, beginning with the phrase “may the Lord bless you and keep you...” is one of the most well-known in the scripture. Join us to explore what it means to receive this blessing in our lives by God and to know the grace and peace of our loving Creator.
