Sunday to Monday | God Has Your Back

 “Ring the bells that can still ring. Forget your perfect offering.”

Leonard Cohen

It was a good morning to gather for worship and praise God for being with us on the journey. We remembered 9/11/01 and considered 9/11/18. Pastor Dave shared the Exodus story in chapter 14:19-31 as God and Moses were leading the Israelites out of slavery - God moved behind them to protect them from the Egyptian army chasing them. That's what God does when we are in times of deep darkness - moves behind to protect and be with us. 

If you missed being with us, you can watch here. Pray with us here. Check out photos from the week's ministry: 

For your week's reflections, devotions and conversations. 

  • Where was God on 9/11/01? Where is God on 9/11/18? (See Exodus 14 for reflection.
  • Where were you on 9/11/01? Where are you spiritually in terms of processing 9/11 on 9/11/18? (See Luke 23:34 and wrestle with the images of 9/11/01 and what Christ is telling us now.)
  • Watch Paul Simon’s song, “American Tune” and prayerfully consider the words. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHZ72yHQ0K8
  • Read Matthew 5:1-12. (The Beatitudes) out loud each day for a week. What thoughts and phrases stand out?
  • Where is peacemaking needed in your life: personally, locally, globally, or all of the above?
  • How can you be God’s agent of peace in the next 5 minutes?
  • Looking ahead to next week: If you could have one great argument, what would be the topic? Who would you address? See Mark 9:30-37 for inspiration.
