Wednesday Advent Services on Zoom

Watch, Wait, Wonder, Worship
Wednesdays in Advent, 7 pm
During this season of Advent, we invite you to join us for a “live,” Zoom midweek worship each Wednesday – December 2, 9, 16, 23 – at 7 pm.  Our theme will be shared by many congregations across the ELCA, reminding us that even in this time of pandemic we remain a connected church.  These are quiet, meditative services with intentional spaces of silence, readings, and song.  To facilitate your participation, we invite you to save this Zoom link (it will be the same for each Wednesday) and to print or download the pages which will serve as your worship folder each week.  With the Church of every time and place we pray, Come, Lord Jesus.
Worship materials are HERE.

Hello Friends!

Today, Ross sings with us, complete with a spelling lesson, and Anita thinks about waiting. Happy Advent!

Martin Rinkart (1586-1649) is the author of the text “Now Thank We All Our God”.  He was a minister in the city of Eilenburg during the Thirty Years War. Apart from battles, lives were lost in great number during this time due to illnesses and disease spreading quickly throughout impoverished cities. In the Epidemic of 1637, Rinkart officiated at over four thousand funerals, sometimes fifty per day. In the midst of these horrors, it’s difficult to imagine maintaining faith and praising God, and yet, that’s exactly what Rinkart did. Sometime in the next twenty years, he wrote the hymn, “Now Thank We All Our God,” originally meant to be a prayer said before meals. Rinkart could recognize that our God is faithful, even when the world looks bleak, He is “bounteous” and is full of blessings, if only we look for them. Blessings as seemingly small as a dinner meal, or as large as the end of a brutal war and unnecessary bloodshed are all reasons to lift up our thanks to God, with our hearts, our hands, and our music.

Take time to relax and to count your blessings during this Thanksgiving Day and the year ahead.

The links to the first Zoom session and the materials to print will be in next week’s and subsequent Tidings. See the Trinitarian for more details. Contact Valerie M (valerie@vmwishes.com) with any questions.

Hello Trinity Family,
This week I offer Here I Am Lord arranged by Jack Schrader. The readings of the past few weeks have focused on uncomfortable themes of times to come: punishment for sins, limitations on who will go to heaven, and grinding and gnashing of teeth. This week’s readings will include a call to action as well. Following Christ’s example isn’t always easy or straightforward, but with the help of God’s grace, we can all act as God’s hands and feet in the world and bring each other closer to salvation.

Here is the hymn text for your reflection:
I the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save
I who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?
Here I am, LordIs it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord
If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart
Blessings,
Angela

Welcome Friends!

Today’s video has a surprise! Ross sings with us, and shows us the work on the roof of the sanctuary! Anita shares a reading from 1 Thessalonians, and wonders about how we encourage each other in faith.

Hello Trinity Family,
Happy Veterans’ Day!  Today I offer America the Beautiful arranged by Lorie Line.
The link to the video is HERE.

Here is the hymn text for your reflection.
Oh beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. This week looks a little different. The church building is getting a new roof, making things hard to record. This week, we also have an anthem from the Heavenly handbells.
This week also marks the 35th Sunday where we haven’t had worship in the sanctuary (Anita refers to this as the 35th Sunday of Coronatide), and we crossed over the line of 100 videos on YouTube. Thank you for your support of this ministry.
