Love Letters to the Church ....
Wherever you are on your own journey, there is a place for you here.
In worship for the next eleven weeks – May 29 to August 7 – Blair will be exploring two of Paul’s letters: to the Galatians and the Colossians. The series will be called “Love Letters to the Church.” Over this time, the people of Lynn Valley United are considering these texts, have been invited to write a love letter to the congregation - with words of hope, and encouragement, as this community prepares to move into our building.
If you're part of the Waves group, centenny prayer, or want to read through the scriptures on your own, here are the readings:
- May 29, Galatians 1:1-12
- June 5, Corinthians 3:10-23

- June 19, Galatians 2:15-21

Questions we may consider include - How does the gospel of Jesus Christ play out in your life? From your perspective, how is the gospel seeking to be proclaimed in our time and place? What is the good news that is longing to be heard? What words of encouragement would you offer the people of LVUC preparing to move into a building that stands as a bold reminder of God in the midst of the community? In the manner of the ancient texts, and as a disciple of Christ, what letter would you write to LVUC? Exerpts of these letters wil be included in Sunday worship.
