The theme for this week’s updated nondenominational worship service (now slightly shorter and with better sound balance) is discovery. It’s timed for and acknowledges Columbus Day (a long-term memory for many elders) and Indigenous Peoples Day.
Jesus likens the kingdom of heaven to a discovered treasure or pearl that’s worth everything! As people of faith, discovery is woven into the fabric of our lives. God’s word and presence aren’t static; God is constantly leading us to discovery more depths of his love, wisdom, guidance, correction, justice, mercy, and truth.
Peace be with you,
P.S. Here’s the written agenda for the discovery church service.
P.S.S. I’m indebted to this article by Valerie Burton for the three “discovery” questions in the service.
