"Resurrection doesn't mean we wake up without scars"

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

We are still family even while we are apart, so while we are unable to gather because of the ongoing health crisis, I will be sharing material on the blog each Sunday morning, and posting notes to those unable to access the internet. Of course you are free to use this material at any time, but my hope is that as many of us as possible will be reading these words during our usual service time - Sunday at 10:30 if you're new or need a reminder! - gathering in time if not in space.


Over the next few weeks, we will be thinking about what resurrection life may look like for us in the light of the current health crisis. Where do we go from here? Is there still space for fear as well as hope? What might look like the old life and what will be made new?



Call to worship

Begin by holding in your mind all those you would normally be worshipping with, then hear these words from Matthew 11 as an invitation to find solace into worship: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Song | Jesus Is The Name We Honour


Prayer

I invite you to spend some time praying for whatever is on your heart, but I also offer some recorded prayers below. However you pray, I invite you to end with the Lord's Prayer.

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory

forever and ever.

Amen.


Reading: John 20:24-29, read by Fiona Hossack

Song | Blessed Be Your Name


Blessing

Close your time of worship by again holding in your mind those you love and would be worshipping alongside, and use the words of the grace: May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit remain with us all evermore. Amen.
