1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3 You turn us back to dust, and say, “Turn back, you mortals.”
4 For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday when it is past, or like a watch in the night.
5 You sweep them away; they are like a dream, like grass that is renewed in the morning;
6 in the morning it flourishes and is renewed; in the evening it fades and withers.

  • SCRIPTURE READING – Matthew 4:1-11 – Kimi King and Dr. James Meernik
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished. 3 The tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” 4 But he answered, “It is written,
‘One does not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written,
‘He will command his angels concerning you,’
and ‘On their hands they will bear you up,
so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.’”
7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor; 9 and he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” 10 Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! for it is written,
‘Worship the Lord your God,
and serve only him.’”
11 Then the devil left him, and suddenly angels came and waited on him.

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.
2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them;
4 he will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.”
5 And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
6 Then he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life.
7 Those who conquer will inherit these things, and I will be their God and they will be my children.

Ash Wednesday Service

It was so good to see so many members of our Trinity Family come together to observe Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.

We were blessed by music from our Children’s Chimes, the Praise Team, and a beautiful Offertory song from Nick Hines. Our Youth led the litany readings.

If you were unable to attend, or simply want to experience it again, here is the LiveStream broadcast from last night’s service.

A Prayer for Christmas

Christmas prayer of praise and confession

We praise You, O loving God,
who gave Your very self in human form,
Your majesty born into our poverty,
Your love lying in a manger.

We thank You that, amidst Bethlehem’s noisy rush,
we find in You
a focus for our activity,
a hope for you humanity,
a love for all eternity.

But we confess that
Christ’s birth has gone unnoticed.
Now, as then, we have not made room
in our day to day lives.

Now, as then, we have mislaid
Your message of reconciling love.
Now, as then, we have ignored
the stillness of Your presence.

Gift-giving God, forgive us.
Free us from our self-centeredness.
Help us to accept Your love so freely given
that we may live
as You have called us to live. Amen.

– The Methodist Church in Britain
