Reflection from Ps. Bill

Dear Logos Family,

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:12-13 (NIV)

The following is an excerpt from a liturgy by Douglas McElvey in his book, Every Moment Holy.

Leader: 

O children of the Living God, what is your Father’s greatest desire for you this day?

People: 

That we should love our eternal King with all our hearts, with all our souls, with all our minds and with all our strength.

 And how would you show this love?

By remembering him at all times. 

By cultivating thankfulness for his many blessings, and trusting his good providence for the meeting of our needs.

By loving all whose lives intersect our own. 

By choosing to serve rather than to be served, to be wounded rather than to wound, and by bearing patiently with the failings of others, extending the same kindness, mercy, and compassion that God in Christ has so graciously offered us. 

Have a blessed holy week!

Pastor Bill
