Call to Celebration
Love does not seek fame.
Love honors humility.
Glory is not glamours.
Glory is gut-wrenching, transformative work.
Faith is not a system of belief.
Faith embodies the practice of Love.
Love shifts our focus from personal gains to communal acquisition.
We become what we practice.
Dear Love, thank you for not calculating the costs. You gave everything. Your Glory transformed our personal stories. We are emerging into a community of love because you gave ALL. Empower us to reveal that Love is more than reciting prayers and creeds on Sunday. Love is not a ritual. Love is an ongoing practice. Amen
Service May 15
John 13: 31-3 NIV
31 When he was gone, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in him. 32 If God is glorified in him,[a] God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.
33 “My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
