Breathing in, breathing out, God patiently shapes our fragile, earthen vessels into members of the eternal, grace-filled Body of Christ.

the call to worship from last night’s worship service:

Breathing in, breathing out, the Spirit of God calls us to this time and place.

Breathing in, breathing out, we practice living in the presence of God.

Breathing in, breathing out, we practice loving as God loves the world.

Breathing in, breathing out, God patiently shapes our fragile, earthen vessels into members of the eternal, grace-filled Body of Christ.

Welcome to the season of Epiphany!

P.S. The air-wind-breath imagery of this call to worship was especially appropriate last night. First, we worshipped in the main sanctuary due to a gas and/or heating issue in our sanctuary (I arrived late, so I’m not exactly up on what the problem was.) And then, while we worshipped, the wind outside squeeeeeealed and rattled the stained-glass windows. I took it all as God’s way of helping me remember to relax into the Holy Spirit, to relax into the Power of God, God’s Wind, God’s Breath.
