HOPE for these hard times…

Welcome to this week’s edition of ‘some assembly required’ worship. Blessings to you as you take the time to worship today.

Let’s begin with Eric’s prelude. This week, Eric plays for us the third movement of Beethoven Sonata Op. 10, No. 1, “Minuet and Trio.”

A prayer of Adoration and confession to settle us as we worship:

Our first hymn this morning is #400, Spirit of the Living God. You will notice that Eric is playing an introduction to the hymns this week. So wait until he pauses before you start singing along.

Our Scripture reading this week is provided by my Mom, Barbara Mitchell! She is reading from Ephesians 1:15-23 in the Good News Translation:

The sermon is entitled HOPE for these hard times:

And our final hymn is #792 Let us hope when hope seems hopeless (you may not recognize the words, but I promise you will know the tune! Remember to wait for the intro!):

Until tomorrow, dear friends, keep on hoping in God whose mercy and love never fails!

  1. Didn’t get any hope this morning, listened to Eric’s prelude, but no matter what I tried I could not make my phone or computer continue with today’s service. Was it just me or was there a glitch in the transmission?

    I did manage to hear and see most of the Ascension Day message from Knox Waterloo, I do enjoy Hugh Donnelley and style of their service.

    Love what you are doing to hold Graceview together, we all need these feelings of hope and of a peaceful future.

    1. Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear that, Bob. I did check with others and they were able to access it. So I suspect it was a glitch on your end. I would suggest fully shutting down your computer and rebooting it. Sometimes computers get stuck in a loop and won’t load content, even though there is nothing wrong with the content. Rebooting usually fixes this. Blessings to you!
