A Song of Assurance

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Children's moment, Holy communion, Sermon, Sunday service

The very familiar 23rd Psalm, containing some of the most comforting words in our scriptures, is the psalm reading in the lectionary today, and it couldn’t come at a better time.  It does not pledge that there will not be hard times – the valley of the shadow of death – but assures that God is with us, even in those times, even if we feel alone.  And what if the table prepared for us in the presence of our enemies actually means that at God’s table there’s a place for everyone, including those we might have thought of as our enemies?   (NOTE: We usually post the 11 o’clock service, but with the COVID-19 threat we are having only the 8:45 service today, and that is the service we are posting.  NOTE:  Although the video begins with the Children’s Moment, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
