Worship Resources for 11 October 2020

Dear Friends,

This week, we continue our exploration of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi.

I visited the ancient city of Philippi as part of my seminary training, a three-week excursion through the cities of Paul and immersion into the Greek Orthodox Church.

Here is a photograph of the baptismal pool created in memory of Lydia, a place I found beautiful and inspiring – obviously because I later named my daughter Lydia.

As the unusual founding of this community (a Gentile woman and a Roman soldier) reminds us, God’s Spirit is at work everywhere including in surprising people and places. 

Also, here is a song that will be part of our worship for those who gather together on Sunday:

I made the mistake of playing it early in the day and it has stayed with me, just ask the volunteers in the kitchen! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

If you are worshipping from home, here are the links to the Home Worship Guide for this Sunday and the Reflection.

In peace,
