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).

Promise of Hope

This Sunday, we are in week four of a six-week series called Promises Unfold. In this series we continue to explore the Old Testament through the major and minor prophets. This week, we look at the story of Daniel and the Lions’ Den. It is a story that remains open to the future as an example of the experience of God’s faithfulness. It’s like other stories that we hear about in the Old Testament. The story of Joseph and his brothers, Esther, and even the story about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Daniel chapter 3. And it is what the Christmas story is all about too. It is an illustration of God’s wondrous working despite all odds. It’s about God’s victory on behalf of all humanity and creation even in the darkest times of life. Knowing all of this, Daniel remains steady, even despite disaster and communal suffering. Daniel knows that God is the past, present, and future. Ultimately Daniel trusts in the promise of hope that is God’s victory.
