GSCC Update - February 17, 2021
 
From the Lead Pastor:

As we begin the Christian season of Lent, today on Ash Wednesday, we begin by recognizing and calling upon God.  We hope many of you will join us tonight on our regular GTM log in at 7pm to usher in this season of prayerful reflection as Holy Vessels, holding our brokenness and learning about God's miraculous healing.  Each of you is in my thoughts and prayers.

Pastor Nina

Names of God Litany
(Chalice Hymnal #11)

O God, because you are the source of all life and love and being,
We call you Creator;
Because we know the history of your presence among your covenanted people and honor their tradition,
We call you Lord;
Because our Savior, Jesus Christ, your obedient child, knew you intimately and spoke of you so,
We call you Father;
Because you are present in the act of birth and because you shelter, nurture, and care for us,
We call you Mother;
Because you hold us up and give us strength and courage when we are weak and in need,
We call you Sustainer;
Because we have known you in our pain and suffering,
We call you Comforter;
Because beyond pain lies your promise of all things made new,
We call you Hope;
Because you are the means of liberation and the way to freedom,
We call you Redeemer.

Confident that you will hear, we call upon you with all the names that make you real to us, the names that create an image in our minds and hearts, an image that our souls can understand and touch.  And yet, we know that you are more than all of these. Blessing and power, glory and honor be unto you, our God. Amen.
