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).

Abyss, Mystery & Wonder

This week, we are in the fourth 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. Today’s Psalm was written after the people had returned back to the Temple after they were scattered by the Babylonians and the Assyrians. And when they came back to Jerusalem, they praised God. But it wasn’t what they had anticipated. The Temple wasn’t the same. The people were not the same as before the exile. Worship wasn’t the same either. They struggled with finding a new identity while still celebrating their survival and return.

Scripture References: Psalms 135:13-21, Psalms 135:1-3
