September 1, 2019 – 12th Sunday After Pentecost – The Word

Genesis 1:1-9, Isaiah 40:1-8, Hebrews 4:12-14, John 1:1-14, 2 Timothy 3:16-4:5

           Our worship is centered around the word. We gather around the word, the proclaim the word, and we respond to the word. That’s the basic structure for our ‘normal’ worship service. The word can be the text of Scripture. It can be those words that we read from the Bible. The word can also be the living witness of Jesus Christ. Is it either/or or both/and?            We’ll hear the word, and we’ll respond to the living word. Our service will focus around hearing the passages that speak about God speaking in creation, about the Word that worked in creation, about the living word as a 2 edged sword, and about the word that does not wither or fade.
