A Prayer for a Time of International CrisisBook of Common Worship, PC(USA)

Eternal God, our only hope, our help in times of trouble— Show nations ways to work out differences. Do not let threats multiply or power be used without compassion. May Your will overrule human willfulness, so that people may agree and settle claims peacefully. Hold back those who are impulsive, lest desire for vengeance overwhelms our common welfare. Bring peace to earth, through Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace and Savior of us all. AMEN!

Dear Friends in Christ,

On this Second Sunday After Epiphany, we ponder the “epiphany” of knowing that we are known by God.  Our lectionary scripture is Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18 and the call of the boy Samuel in I Samuel 3:1-10. 

Each worship service is planned with something for all ages. In addition to the Worship Guide, there is one specifically designed for children. In recognizing that the attention span of a child is much shorter than an adult, the Children’s Moment is near the beginning of the worship service and is based upon the scripture.

In preparing for worship,

  • intentionally set up the space where you will worship, maybe with a Christ candle, a Bible, flowers
  • pray for God to prepare your heart for worship and God’s Word
  • read the scriptures before worship and reflect
  1. do you remember when you first knew that God loves you?
  2. how do you know God knows you?
  3. what difference does it make in how you treat another person that God has also made him/her?

I look forward to worshipping together with you!

In the Love of God,

Dr. Laurey Harrell, Pastor
Johns Island Presbyterian Church

Our topic this week will be about New Year’s Resolutions and your Faith. Do you make new year resolutions? If not, How do you participate in setting goals for a new year? Do your resolutions connect to your life of faith? Why or why not?

At Theology Thursday meetings, ALL are welcome and ALL are invited to share their own experiences and opinions when applica- ble. Disagreement and debate are important parts of discussion and wrestling with faith. However, hateful speech, harsh language, rude comments, and an inability to hear others’ perspectives and opinions will not be tolerated.
