Worship Reflections 06.28.09

Our sermon series from Matthew 5-6-7 continued today with a sermon simply titled ‘Stuff’ from Matthew 6:19-34.  An interesting conversation about ‘earthly treasures’ vs. ‘heavenly treasures’, when having ‘stuff’ crosses the line, and what to do about worry.

Thoughts
‘Glory to God Forever’ is still a bit new for us.  Our church seems to draw more effectively into worship through music when we start with something familiar so we started with a scaled down chorus of ‘Holy is the Lord’ (coming out of a brief scripture prayer), then went into a full band version of ‘Glory to God Forever’. 

‘Endless Mercy of God’ was new for all of us.  Great song with a hymn-like quality.  Led by our guy vocalist, featuring acoustic guitar, bass, and some truly tasty B-3. 

To end the service, our pastor gave the congregation a few minutes to reflect on the primary questions in this passage.  We then sang ‘Center’, which I think was a great fit for this service.
