Contemplative Worship Experiences

All are welcome to watch, listen, download the bulletin, and participate in contemplative online worship experiences.

Prince of Peace uses the Narrative Lectionary for its Scripture readings during worship. The Narrative Lectionary guides worshippers through the breadth of the Bible, both the Old Testament and New Testament. People are invited to hear the many voices within Scripture. Beginning the Sunday after Labor Day through Advent, the Narrative Lectionary takes us through the Old Testament starting with the story of creation and moving through the Prophets. The Christmas Season through Easter focuses on readings from one of the four Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Following Easter until Pentecost, Scripture focuses on the early Christian Church through the Book of Acts and the Apostle Paul’s Letters. During the summer months, there are three thematic units. They contain at least one series from the Old Testament; one series from the New Testament; and one catechetical series (Ten Commandments, Sacraments, Creeds or Lord’s Prayer).

Pastor Andrea Fluegel - August 16, 2020


This week, we are in the second week of a six-week series called, “Beguiled By Beauty,” based on Wendy Farley’s book of the same name. In this series, we will explore the beauty of God’s created world as God sees it and how it leads us into a more contemplative, Christ-giving life. We will experience the Triune God through scripture, sermon, music, poetry, and visual pictures. We are beloved children of God, created by God. God knew us while we were still in our mother’s womb. God knows how many hairs we have on our heads. And God knows our hearts. Psalm 16 is a psalm of lament in which an individual cries out to God in the midst of a perilous, even life-threatening situation. And yet, this Psalm is also a psalm of confidence or a confession of faith. For even in the midst of suffering, we trust in God’s strength and refuge. We trust that God’s blanket will surround us and comfort us.

Scripture References: Psalms 16:7-11
