This week, we are in the prologue of a new series called "Returning to the Promise." In this series, we will explore stories from the Old Testament and how God's love of promise keeps returning to us over and over again. In this contemplative online worship experience, people from Prince of Peace reflect on the core values of creativity, community, grace, spirituality, and helping others and also what it means to be gathered by grace and sent to serve. Take time, pause for reflection and listen to God's voice as you keep your roots grounded in the waters of baptism. Open your hearts to the stirring of the Holy Spirit as together we discern where God is calling us in the midst of the challenges, suffering, and injustices of life.
"Returning to the Promise" is a seven-week series based on stories from the Old Testament. Often, we are told that the Old Testament is full of judgement, wrath, and anger. But the Old Testament describes the very character of a loving God who continues to return to the faithful promise of unconditional and ongoing love for all of creation. It is why we first ground ourselves in "God is love" from 1 John 4.
