Preparing to Worship
In this season after Easter we will be reflecting on the church’s calling to be a physical manifestation of Christ’s presence in the world and reading from 1 Corinthians. In this book, Paul invites us to think about ourselves and how we are part of the church in several ways. Early on he encourages us to think of ourselves as temples of the Holy Spirit. In a first century cosmopolitan port town like Corinth there were many temples to many Gods. In the midst of that, the encouragement to think of ourselves as temples of the Holy Spirit is a powerful one. Later on, Paul makes use of another image, the body—we are all part of the Body of Christ he says.
Please note the new time of 9:15 a.m. for the early service.
For May 28th, the readings for Truth and Reconciliation Sunday will come from 1 Corinthians 13, and the Reverend Dimock’s sermon title is The endurance of Love.
