“I am a child of the water and the word.  My baptism is extremely important to me and I relish the gift of the Holy Spirit dwelling within me, the cross of Christ placed upon my forehead and the gift of creation that I am…

I believe that the Holy Spirit has given me gifts of compassion, listening and presence.  I am in awe of the work of the  Holy Spirit through me.  I often see myself as a vessel and servant of God.”   Wendy Abrahamson (2016)

 

Sabbath Stillness

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.

Psalm 62:1

my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.

                        Psalm 130: 6

Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 46:10

Be still, O inhabitants of the coast, O merchants of Sidon, your messengers crossed over the sea

Isaiah 23:2

 So then, a sabbath rest still remains for the people of God; 10 for those who enter God’s rest also cease from their labors as God did from his

Hebrews 4: 9-10.

 

There is so much hustle and bustle in our lives as we run from one appointment or obligation to another, as we “taxi” children and grandchildren to all of their activities, that we need to take a moment or two to be still.   Our busyness may be keeping us from recognizing our soul’s hunger. And that hunger is best fed by taking time to be still in God’s presence.

This time is not for Sunday mornings alone, but wouldn’t that be a good place to begin one’s week?  Join us on Sunday mornings at 8:15am or 10:30 am.  Feed your soul’s hunger, come into the presence of God, entering the worship space upon arrival, sitting in the silence of God’s presence until the prelude begins(10:30am worship only) and then using the music of the prelude to guide your heart’s meditation.
