Strength Training for the Soul
Services offered both online and outdoors at 10:00am
Please RSVP for the outdoor service HERE
“Increase the strength of my soul,” asks the Psalmist. Our culture pays a lot of attention to physical strength—cardio workouts, strength training, products like Peloton to get us physically moving. But how do we strengthen our souls? Join in worship as we explore that question this summer. We continue both the pre-recorded online worship and also the in-person outdoor services at least through Labor Day. Join in one—or both! And invite a friend!
Thanksgiving for Those Who Strengthen Us
In the story of the shepherd David and the giant Goliath, things are not always as they seem. King Saul gives David his own armor, but it doesn’t fit. Instead David relies on what he learned as a shepherd, and especially on the God he knew from his childhood. Who have strengthened us in the faith? Three men from the congregation share a story of a “father in the faith.”
Waiting on the Lord
“Wait for the Lord,” urges Psalm 130. “My soul waits for the Lord more than those who wait for the morning.” How can just waiting for someone or something strengthen us? For the Psalmist, waiting is a time to remember God’s presence in the past. The Psalmist remembers God’s forgiveness, power, and steadfast love. All good things to remember as we gather for the Annual Meeting after a year-plus of pandemic church.
South Strength Training for a nation
What strengthens the soul of a nation? Psalm 48 praises the ramparts of Jerusalem. The Prophet Ezekiel (2:1-5) speaks of the spirit of the Lord. Psalm 123 says look to the Lord. What does our nation need in our time to strengthen its soul? What is our role in that training program?
