Summer Worship Begins - 9:00 & 10:20 a.m. This weekend is a trifecta of sorts: our nation observes Memorial Day, our local public school marks graduation, and the global church celebrates the Day of Pentecost. The poppies in the cafe will help us remember the sacrifices many made for our nation, our prayer time will focus on our graduates, and the rest of our worship will immerse us in our God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
And, we're beginning our summer worship times and our summer worship theme. "Hi-Fi: God's relentless love in the minor prophets." 9:00 and 10:20 a.m.
"Minor Prophets" is the name given to 12 Bible books at the end of the Old Testament. They are only "minor" in the sense that the books are shorter and their messages more specifically focus on one situation.
Sunday we'll meet the prophet Joel. He fits the day pretty well. Not only because his most famous verse is quoted in Peter's speech at Pentecost, but also because he speaks to a people whose lives feel wasting away because of a locust plague devouring a harvest.
I'm guessing most of us can name a time our lives (maybe even right now) when we have felt our lives eaten up by adversity and when God seemed distant. Let's lean in to Joel's message and find hope in God's relentless love.
