On Eagle's Wings

Day 4 of 91 Praying Psalm 91, what connections do you make with this Psalm?

Shannon Wise offered in our staff meeting today that it makes her think of the song "On Eagles Wings" by Michael Joncas. The link below allows you to listen to the song as sung by the composer and fellow artists.

As you pray Psalm 91 with us, if you are inspired to create something (i.e.a photo, a sketch, a painting or something else), Julie Albanus would love to share it with our community over our 91 days of prayer. You can send it to her at [email protected]. And it's not too late to send Mallory Hopper a video of you reading it to [email protected].

Here's the Common English Bible link from BibleGateway again, to help you pray it today:

Day 3 of 91 -- Praying Psalm 91
(This time in King James Version.)

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Pastor Jonathan's Response to Today's Press Release by the United Methodist Church

Friends,

Earlier today, a group of leaders in the United Methodist Church released a joint proposal about the future of our denomination. These participating leaders represent a wide variety of theological and geographical perspectives. If you haven't had a chance to read the proposal, you can do so here:

https://www.unitedmethodistbishops.org/newsdetail/united-methodist-traditionalists-centrists-progressives-bishops-sign-agreement-aimed-at-separation-13133654

I will be discussing this proposal this weekend in worship briefly, but for now, I would offer two thoughts to you:

This is a proposal, not a defined action. There are more steps to come that would allow something like this to be implemented, to include action by the General Conference that will convene in May of this year. Any conversation that happens prior to General Conference is just that -- a conversation. Action will follow based on the will of those gathered as representatives in Minneapolis this May.

Herndon UMC has a wide range of perspectives in our population. Some of us will read this proposal and have a sense of hope, others might read it and have a tinge of worry, and even others might have both or neither of those feelings. No matter what your perspective is, know that I love you, God loves you, and it is great to be doing church together. Over the coming months, we will have a lot to discern together. I believe in both of those words. Discernment, to me, means seeking God's will. How can we be the kind of church God desires for our community? And together, to me, means no one is left out. It is important that the diversity of perspectives in our community be represented well in the conversations we will need to have in the coming months. When we discern together, I believe we have the opportunity to hear the voice of God with clarity and perhaps in new and unexpected ways.

I encourage you to pray for the United Methodist Church, for Herndon UMC, and for the opportunities God is giving us to live into our core values that God's love is real, God's love is active, and God's love is for everyone.

I can't wait to worship with you this weekend and to see how God might be leading our church and community in the weeks and months to come.

Blessings,
Pastor Jonathan

Thank you in advance for all of your help! ***SHARE!*** Link to flyer: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1gdOyKlB7nOZR2nav9ImkYnctEgtGxYIL?usp=sharing
I have been looking for a way to share some of my talents with my fellow Herndon Church members (and anyone else who is interested) and maybe this is a good platform to use. I have recently posted a video of simple exercises to maintain and improve the health of your lungs. These exercises are particularly important during the fall and the cold and flu seasons, but persons with lung problems can do them year round, which is what I do. Here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBwfCeNStGU&t=58s. Best wishes for good health, Roger Blough.
Still looking for a few more volunteers for ushering for the Connection Service! message me if interested!! :)
