Special thanks to our friend Karen Burke for leading the opening liturgy and reading the scripture.

The Lord be with you…
…and with your spirit
Lift up your hearts…
…We lift them up to the Lord
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God
… It is right and just

Mic 5:2-5
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. “Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor gives birth and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites. He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth.

What city would you choose to be the least? What people group today represent the low, the ordinary? How do you feel about those people? How do you feel when you think about the global redemption of God’s people coming from the ordinary? How can you make more space in your life, both for ordinary experiences, and ordinary people?



The Lord be with you…
…and with your spirit
May Almighty God Bless you, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Go in peace
thanks be to God
