Getting Ready for Sunday December 4 at The Crossing

Running Race of Life graphic

This week we continue our sermon series, “Running the Race of Your Life,” as Keith Simon preaches a sermon entitled, “God is not Enough” from Genesis 1:26–27 and 2:18. The Scripture reads,

1:26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,

in the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them.

2:18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

We will introduce a new song this Sunday for Advent. It comes from Psalm 126 which was a psalm the Israelites sang as they went up to the temple. It is well-suited for Advent, because it is situated between Jesus’ first and second comings. It knows of both joy and sorrow, satisfaction and longing, exactly where we find ourselves now as we celebrate that the Lord has come and we long for him to come. Have a listen before Sunday so that you can be ready to sing it.

Here’s our song list for this Sunday (with links to lyrics and music):

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel [lyrics; Kim Walker-Smith version] – words by unknown Latin author; translated by John M. Neale

This is the Christ (lyrics; listen) – words by Martin Luther; music by Sandra McCracken

Psalm 126 [lyrics; listen] – Isaac Wardell

A Day of Glory (lyrics; listen) – Chris Collins, Justin Cofield, Aaron Ivey, Matt Carter; adapted from a hymn by John Mason Neale

We Will Feast in the House of Zion [lyrics and listen] – Sandra McCracken

See you on Sunday!

    As new member, although I did attend at Rock Bridge, I find Every Square Inch quite helpful. It puts me in church frame of mind. Which, I believe, for mealso flows over into my daily interactions with others. It makes stop and think. Stop being so judgemental and jumping to conclusions. A habit of mine it’s something I’m working on. After saying al of this , no it does not make me a “goodie two shoes”, just I hope more mindful. Sunday!!!!
