How can we as ordinary people describe our Creator God? Traditionally we use the term “trinity,” as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but these terms may still be limiting. Beyond those words, if we use music, images, and the emotions from stories, we can enhance our understanding of God, as much as any human community can comprehend the totality of God.
Our services are 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 Psalm is Psalm 8. This is a Psalm of David, praising the majesty of God and the amazing blessings God has given humans.
Our Scripture Reading is Romans 5:1-15. Paul is speaking to the early church in Rome, reminding them they have been filled with God’s love through the Holy Spirit.
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.
I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
|The message today is a telling of the story of Max Lucado’s “Hermie: A Common Caterpillar.” Hermie (and his best friend, Wormie) wonder why God-their close friend and Creator-chose to make them so common. With an amazing transformation, they both learn the truth behind God’s impeccable timing. (Description from the book summary from GoodReads.com.)|
