“Sending our thoughts and prayers.” Is this a way of avoiding taking a stand and making the changes that need to be made? How do we redeem the idea of prayer from those who have presented it as ineffectual and easy? Today we see how prayer and action are not opposites but complements in the spectrum of responding in faith.
Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning. Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.
Our Scripture Reading is from James 5:13-20 NRSV. James spends much of this book encouraging followers to have faith that is displayed in action, but in this passage he encourages the community to use prayer to build up the community.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC. Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service. I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
The message today from Trish Catalano is “The Power of Prayer.”
