Sunday January 31, 2021
Out of an abundance of care and caution, the people of Resurrection Lutheran Church, Moose Pass United Methodist Church, and Seward United Methodist Church bring you an online worship experience. It is an act of love to the communities we serve to provide this safe alternative to gathering in person Today “The kingdom of heaven is at hand” as Jesus heals a man with “an unclean spirit.” In this story we’ll see how we have often scapegoated those with mental illness and how we need to see our own “possession” by the powers of the world. But ultimately, Jesus heals. Pastor Jim is preaching today. Pastor Ben brings another Lego children’s time and provides the prayers.
Last week we used the music of Nathan Drake and ReAwaken Hymns as a shout-out to the good work he has done supporting churches during this time of COVID. But personal relationships have helped as well. Today we use the good music of Lani Nelson and the people of Hillview UMC in Boise, Idaho. We have highlighted Lani’s vocals and guitar playing and today we have some less traditional music, “God of Wonders,” “The Summons,” and “Mighty to Save.” Thank you for keeping music playing during these COVID times.
Thank you to Sue McClure for her piano music. You can find Sue’s pre-worship music as a separate upload. Worship will be “Premiered” on the Seward/Moose Pass UMC Facebook page at 10:30 AM but will thereafter be available on the Facebook Page and our YouTube Channel. You may also find Sue McClure’s pre-worship music there. Seward/Moose Pass UMC CCLI License for Music & Streaming #11205680. Seward/Moose Pass UMC One License for Music & Streaming # M-400610.
