April 3 | God and the Good Life (Week 5): Alleviate Suffering

Mar 28, 2022 | Worship

You are invited into this worship experience for the week of Sunday, April 3.

From Psalm 126:1-6

This Psalm is a reflection of a God who has transformed spaces of mourning and grief into spaces of immense joy and gratitude. Frederick Buechner writes about the sense of calling or vocation as the intersection of your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger. In this way, the alleviation of suffering is the attentiveness to personal vocation. Sometimes that may be a very practical or physical suffering. Other times it may be an invitation to intercede in someone’s emotional or spiritual suffering. But in this space there is bound to be a transformation both of the other and of the self.

Personal and communal suffering are realities of this life, but God can create transformation in these spaces through the presence of those who are faithful.

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.

This Sunday our morning worship is  @ 10am in Herndon UMC’s Fellowship Hall. This service is livestreamed on YouTube and herndonumc.org. Our second worship opportunity is Sunday at 5pm in the sanctuary.

Nursery care is available for infants and young children during the Sunday worship services.  If you have questions about the Nursery, contact mallory@herndonumc.org.

KIDS Age 3 – Grade 6 start Sunday mornings in Worship with their families, and are invited to join our adult leaders for their own hands-on Bible learning time after the Children’s Message. 

As always, we want to stay connected and are a community of prayer.  Glory sightings and prayer concerns may be shared by text, in the chat, through this online form, or at any time by email to prayerchain@herndonumc.org.
