Ekklesia is the Greek word that is translated in our modern bibles as "church." However, the meaning of the word is more closely translated "gathering." What would is mean to shift our thinking of church as a building, and more closely align it to a gathering?
What does it mean to be a mission-focused church? Pastor David takes a look at how you can do everything in the name of Jesus, even washing dishes and taking out the trash.
"Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to the Father through him." Colossians 3:17
Thanks to audio issues in worship on Sunday, we only have recordings of our musical offerings by Tim Gordon, sax, and Jeff Perks, piano/organ. Enjoy these arrangements of Highland Cathedral and We Bow Down.
When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the king and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost-
to heal the broken -
to feed the hungry-
to release the prisoner -
to rebuild the nations -
to bring peace among the people -
to make music in the heart.
- Howard Thurman
