January 4 - Sunday Rest

8:30 worship today turned out to be a great way to launch church for the new year.  The praise band "hit the groove" early, and it was one of those rare occasions where I could simply feel my way around the guitar and enjoy the worship experience without having to watch too closely to make sure I was playing the right notes.

The music touched me deeply; and the preaching was excellent. But it was communion that set the tone for 2009 (Stock photo image). Remembering Christ's sacrifice; understanding why we were there - together; taking the elements in the context of community; confirming what we already knew yet so easily forget. The knowledge that we are God's children, that we are loved unconditionally, and that we have this opportunity to respond through living faithful lives.
