We invited our sisters and brothers of faith from our local mosques and synagogue to join us in a time of reflection and prayer to honor the innocents slain as they worshiped in the mosques of Christchurch, New Zealand - the latest in a string of global assaults on people of faith worshiping peacefully. An attack on any people of faith is an attack on all people of faith, and we stand in solidarity with all people of faith with love in our hearts for all who seek the peace and blessings of a loving LORD. A podcast recording of our service with interfaith prayers and scripture readings are below. Please continue in times of prayer and reflection to help the world to surrender to the living shield of faith, not to the hard and lifeless shield of warring hearts.
We invite you to come this Sunday at 10AM to celebrate a God who loves us, a God who protects us, a God who invites us to gather in new generations to God's protection in Jesus Christ. It is love that is meant to save us all, for all time! Rejoice in joyful worship, stay for warm fellowship, and please join us for a moment of prayer at noon, in unity with all people on God's earth, in the wake of the tragic shooting of 49 worshipers at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. Be blessed, and rejoice in our God's loving protection!
At our church, we take our faith seriously, and the love of a saving God seriously. We offer it to everyone in our community. And so, at the time of this tragic murder of 49 worshipers at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, we invite all people, and all faith leaders, to a short but important time of prayer and reflection this Sunday, March 19th, in our church sanctuary. There will be no sermons, only prayers, some visual and sound reflections, and some words of scripture that can offer us unity, healing, and hope at this time. May we all pray for the healing of the world that God have given to us in love, and for the healing of all hearts and bodies and souls who have been wounded so deeply by this tragedy.
