Re-Formation, A Way of Living

Introduction

In our final week before the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the historic Reformation, we turn our attention to our traditions' way of living out our faith in Christ. Washed in God's grace, raised by the power of the Gospel, we are set free to trust and serve God with our lives, dedicate ourselves to the freedom of others, share in their pain, and boldly hold up our weakness and vulnerability as the instrument through which God is working to heal the cosmos (an idea we call "the Theology of the Cross").


Prayer of the Day

O God, we thank you for your Son, who chose the path of suffering for the sake of the world. Humble us by his example, point us to the path of obedience, and give us strength to follow your commands, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Care Ministry

Do you feel connected to God when you pray? Sometimes we find ourselves in ruts--always eating the same meals, doing the same activities. It's helpful to refresh all areas of our lives, including our prayer life.

Here are some ideas: try a different prayer posture, pray with a Gospel reading or one (or several) of the Psalms. Envision a conversation with Jesus. Say the Jesus prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." May we all find peace, comfort, hope and joy through our time spent in prayer.

 

Do you have ideas for enhancing our prayer life, connectedness, and care for others? Please email karenwhitefield@me.com or call (713) 446-8678.

Acolytes

Acolytes play an important role in worship. The word acolyte means "one who helps," and MDLC Acolytes do just that! These volunteers light and extinguish candles, collect the offering, and assist with communion and baptisms. Students in elementary school are encouraged to participate. Training is provided.
