This morning was beautiful. At church I took this beautiful sunrise picture.
The open hymn at both the Heritage service and Downtown Alive was
“Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
The King of creation
O my soul, praise Him
For He is thy health and salvation
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near
Praise Him in glad adoration”
One of my favorite hymns it really seemed to fit on this morning when the sunrise was so glorious. In week three of our sermon series our focus was on the phrase, “give us this day our daily bread.” The altar was beautifully set with a variety of breads. (Not pictured are the baskets of holy bread shared with the congregation during worship.)
Our scriptures; Psalm 23 and Luke 12: 22-32 are verses that remind us that God is there for us in all of life. “Don’t worry,” Jesus says, and we all know how easy that is! Still, again and again we are encouraged to not be afraid, to not worry or be anxious. The Lord’s Prayer gives us a moment to ask for what we need, not just for ourselves but for the whole world You can find today’s service at this link.
