West End United Methodist Church

Love Letter, Part 3

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon

This is the final of a series of three sermons on texts from 1 John, all titled “Love Letter,” which is the focus of that ancient letter.  In worship are we talking to God or about God?  Of course, the design of the service, beginning with the Prayer of Confession, is that we join together to focus on God.  Perhaps we think of the sermon as talking about God rather than to God, but the hope is that the sermon draws us into conversation with God.  The author of 1 John reminds us that our response to God’s love for us is to love one another – it isn’t just a one-on-one relationship between a person and God, but it draws us into love of all of God’s people and God’s creation.  (NOTE: We are livestreaming both services, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are using a chamber choir and having limited congregation.  NOTE:  The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
