Scripture: Isaiah 43: 16-21
















I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. - Ephesians 3:16-19

My prayer for you today is the same as the Apostle Paul's prayer for the believers in Ephesus two thousand years ago: That you may know the love of Christ, that you may be rooted and grounded in his love. Join us Sunday morning for worship as we come face-to-face with our Lord and his love.

Rev. Katie Hill




Soundtrack for Lent

 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.  - Colossians 3:16

     Paul encouraged the church to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. There is something deep and rich in singing the songs of our faith. Music has a way of reaching past our minds, past even our hearts, into our souls, the depths of our being. If you have ever spent time with someone with memory problems, you know that even when they struggle to remember names and dates, they can still sing the songs they learned in childhood without missing a word.

     The season of Lent begins this year on February 17th. We will gather, in some fashion, for Ash Wednesday to confess our sins and receive the mark of the cross on our foreheads. And we will begin to sing our way through the season. Our soundtrack for the season will be the Psalms and we will have the opportunity to gather around the word of God through daily readings and a weekly gathering.

     The daily readings include a reading from one of the Psalms, a short reflection on that passage, a prayer, and two or three questions for further reflection. If you would like to participate in the daily devotional readings, visit soundtrackforlent.com. There you will be able to sign up for a daily devotional email or purchase the devotional book. There is also a playlist of the Psalms in modern language set to familiar tunes (such as “Amazing Grace”) on the webpage. Not only can you read the Psalms, now you can sing them!

     The readings are wonderful for personal daily encouragement, but they are even better when read and reflected on with others. I encourage you to find a few friends who will band with you around the word of God.  In addition, I will be leading a weekly study based on this book, either in person or on Zoom. Please contact me (pastor@fumcalva.org) or the church office to let me know you would like to participate. 

There’s a soundtrack at the center of the Scriptures. It’s called The Psalms. - seedbed.com
