Noted church statesman from Old Princeton in the 19th Century, Samuel H. Miller, asserted:
Worship is the highest act of which man is capable. It not only stretches him beyond all the limits of his finite self to affirm the divine depth of mystery and holiness in the living and eternal God, but it opens him at the deepest level of his being to an act which unites him most realistically with his fellow man.
We certainly hope, and pray, that our times of worship each week lead us into the kind of rich experiences that Miller described – that, by God’s grace, the Holy Spirit enables us to “stretch beyond self”, to deepen our connection both with the living and eternal God and with one another.
Our service this week again follows a now familiar pattern. We encourage you to take a look at the service in advance, and assign the various parts before you sit down together. As it has been for previous weeks, videos of the songs and the message have been embedded into our digital April 26 Worship Service Outline, and will be available for viewing by 8am on Sunday. These are provided as optional resources to be used when you come to them in their respective places in the service.
A .pdf of the worship outline should be printed out so that each person has the tools for participating in the service. You can find the .pdf by clicking April 26 Worship, or at the top of the Digital Worship Outline.
