You are invited into this worship experience for the week of Sunday,
Commitments are made in a lot of different spaces these days. We have work commitments, family commitments, social commitments, and so much more. All of these commitments can feel overwhelming and overdone at times. So what would it look like to see the commitments we make in Christian community not as another “to do”, but as a space for freedom and sharing? In this five week stewardship series, we’ll look at the commitments we make when joining our church as a foundation for conversation about the ways commitment can be shared, and how our mutual living can lead to mutual growth and love by the power of the Holy Spirit.
As we begin this series on stewardship, we’ll be using this space to introduce how this is a different kind of approach to our shared life in community. And then we’ll pivot into a conversation about commitment to prayer. Prayer is kind of a hard thing, especially when it involves other people. Sometimes this is because we have this image of prayer that is poetic and flowery language that is lofty and inaccessible. Prayer is meant to be shared, not just by clergy, but by everyone. Prayer is also challenged by it’s conflation with “thoughts”. More than just a passing thought (though possibly present in that moment!), prayer is an opportunity for intentional sharing, reflection, and action. We’ll look into prayer as a shared task and encourage opportunities to be in intentional prayer for one another.
Prayer is not just a fleeting thought, but an intentional sharing in the depth of life together.
No matter where you worship from, you are encouraged to add your voice to prayers and songs and stand as you are able. There is a Bulletin to help you experience worship. It includes links and information to help you be connected at Herndon UMC along with the order of worship.
