Sermon: “Be Strong and Bold Because the Lord Goes With You
Theme: Our strength is in our faithfulness to God and service to accomplishing God’s will in the world around us.
Purpose: We will be humble and set aside our assumptions about our power or abilities outside of faithfulness to God’s direction.
Scriptures: Deuteronomy 31:1-13 Moses’ passing of leadership and the law to the people of Israel as they prepared to cross into the promised land.
John 16:16-24 We will weep and mourn – and the world will rejoice, our pain will turn into joy, like labor pains turning into the joy of birth.
What do we truly perceive to be our source for our strength and direction in our lives? In what ways do we allow ourselves to put our own agenda and expectations ahead of God’s work and teachings? How do we maintain our self-differentiation from the world? How do we build our strength on God’s teaching and direction for our lives? How do we be on a mission to build a new “promised land?”
Liturgist: Elijah, Claire, Will, and Kim Braatz
Scripture is read from NRSV Bible (New Revised Standard Version)
