Called Into Service – v2

Each of us uniquely
called to service, to worship
as given by the Spirit
gifts for the work
building up the church of God

Called into service
to use the gifts we are given
to teach one another
the love of our God

Caring for the community
those who are our neighbors
the strangers in our midst
that they would come to the table

The saving of Christ’s sacrifice
his victory over death
the narrow gate of heaven
through the blood of the lamb

Yet freely his love given
unmerited, agape
so we must spread the news
Christ paved the way
we are redeemed before our God

“Notes from Peter”, by Reverend Peter A. Hey,
about his sermon for Mother’s Day, May 9, 2010
“Lydia had the gift of giving.  Her financial support of the early
Christian movement played a significant role in the church. 
My sermon on Mother’s Day will help us appreciate her gifts
and the gifts of leadership that many women bring to the church. 
I believe that loving, listening and learning are essential for leadership. 
I will be preaching this sermon at the evening service, as well as
the morning services.”
