Honoring Christ In Hymnody-Day 3

We leave you with this modern day Hymn from Garden Cities’ Album, The Gospel of John , and we would encourage you to get on our mailing list for when we release our Modern Hymn Projects. Notice the attempt that is made here to combine the choruses of today, with the rich Trinitarian theology that is so dear to us from our history. Notice also how this song tells a story—the story of God. One of the strengths of hymnody that has been...

Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 2

Meals as Historical Turning Points Let’s give a short synopsis of how Scripture’s storyline and historical turning points are built around meals: God’s blessing began in the garden with a meal (Gen. 1:29). God gave Adam and Eve a choice to eat of blessing or curse, symbolized in the Tree of Life and Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The curse, fall of mankind, and Satan’s temptation happened over a meal (Gen. 2:16–17). The first...

Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 1

Meals as Method Have you ever wondered why the whole story line of Scripture is shaped around meals? Have you found yourself the least bit curious as to why the entirety of Jesus’ ministry is summed up in Luke 7:34 as “the Son of Man came eating and drinking?” Let’s do some digging. I find it fascinating that God did not start the creation in the context of a 501(c3) non-profit, a building, a cabinet, a district, a board, or an...

Responsorial Psalm 118: This Is the Day the Lord Has Made!

  Let me begin by saying, “Buckle your seat belts–the holiday season is officially upon us.” While it’s easy to be immediately sucked into Christmas plans, gifts and decorations, Thanksgiving is a holiday that I choose to engage in, even if it has a smaller bling factor. Thanksgiving centers us in reflection and gratefulness. The Psalms, specially Psalm 118, offer practical words and actions we can use to...

Thanksgiving Eve Service – 11-25-09

Well, here we are again. I don’t know if very many of you do a Thanksgiving Eve or Thanksgiving day service, but to me these services seem to just creep up on me every year. In the back of my head, I know they’re coming, but between our regular weekend services and gearing up for Christmas weekend, it seems that they just sort of appear out of no where. I find myself on the Monday before the service wondering exactly how...

Thanksgiving Eve Serivce Review – 11-26-08

Tonight was our annual “Thanksgiving Eve” service. I think it’s a Baptist thing. I’m sure that other churches from other denominations do a thanksgiving eve service, but I had never been a part of one until I worked at a Baptist church. Anyway, it was a good service. We had a pretty normal turnout and it was a nice relaxed time of worship and giving thanks together. Because of the relaxed atmosphere, I felt a...
