Our OT lesson this past Sunday brings us into the intimacy that King David shared with the Lord. And in that moment of closeness and devotion, God makes a covenant that a ruler of David’s line will reign forever–a promise we see fulfilled in Christ!
Continuing in King David’s story, we read about the Ark being brought to Jerusalem as David rejoiced. Would that we all loved God with such devotion and fervor!
Two for one this Sunday. Back to David’s being honored by God for restoring honor to the Lord in Jerusalem. (Our lectionary omits verses 6-9, which can be found here. **Please note, the Vanderbilt site is offline, so the Satucket site was used, which pops up as a document download.**)
Then our less formal, periodic evening Service of Light. The topic: Why Go to Church?
This past Sunday at St Francis, Canon Natalie Hall shared a simple way to make corporate daily devotions in the home a realistic way to re-energize the faith of everyone in your household. It’s called Faith Five: in which 1) we share our highs and lows for the day, 2) read a Scripture, 3) talk about the Scripture in connection to your highs and lows, 4) pray for each other’s highs and lows, and then 5) bless one another. If you are single, you can get together with others, at least once a week, perhaps around a mealtime. This regular practice can do wonders for building relationships with God and others! [Note the recording does have workshop time included, which hopefully you can practice along in your own home.]
