Being Christians of Influence

  Tower Chimes – May 2024 I’d like to ask two related questions: I have a non-Methodist clergy colleague, someone I consider a friend and an effective pastor, who sincerely believes that the United States should not be a democracy but a theocracy.

Maundy Thursday Musical Devotion

  Miserere Mei Deus Around 1638, Gregorio Allegri composed Miserere Mei Deus (“Have Mercy On Me, God”) specifically for the Maundy Thursday Tenebrae service. The Tenebrae takes place after dark. Over the course of the worship service, the candles are extinguished, leaving the sanctuary in darkness at the very end, symbolising the darkness of the tomb.

June 2: Making Jesus Priority #1

  Video and Audio Unavailable June 2 – Graduation Sunday Scripture Readings: Genesis 25:27-34 & 2 Timothy 4:1-8 When it comes to hopes and dreams, what is it you most want to see unfold in your life in the years ahead?
