Filled to the measure of all the fullness of God
Ephesians 3:16-20, which will accompany us through the summer, alludes to a mysterious, beautiful reality – being filled with the fullness of God. The first portion of this text will function each week as our call to worship during the summer, and the second portion will be our benediction. The line, “Filled to the measure of all the fullness of God”, as well as the image of the the Holy Spirit being the “Breath of Life” (or “Spirit of Life”) will be central to our worship. Below is a list of our summer schedule and the folk who will help us reflect on the theme of the God’s abundance, even amidst the confusion, pain, and experiences of scarcity that accompany us through life.

Pray peace and light into our dark and troubled world,
that the Spirit of Life would overcome the Spirit of Death that feeds and feeds off hatred, violence, and destruction.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion. I will wait for him.”
