Dear Village Chapel Singers and Extended Chapel Family,
From the Lectionary, Psalm 133 vs 1
“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” (American Standard Version)
We continue to be bombarded with news of division and strife, of violence and hate in our country. It seems to be an insurmountable problem. Yet the Bible teaches that God has called us to love one another, not hate. The anthem for this week expresses beautifully our prayer that we may accept one another, and that God will “bind us in love.”
“Lord, You have called us, chosen and beloved… teach us forgiveness and compassion… may we forever strive for justice and peace, God’s perfect peace… accepting one another… as we have been forgiven, we forgive. Above all else, Lord, bind us in love.”
For your weekend worship, here is “Above All Else” by Joel Raney:
May God be with you till we meet again.
