Weekend Worship Series: A New Normal
Life is different now. In these days it seems like we have crossed a threshold into a surreal realm. Our daily experience feels so foreign and challenging. It causes us to wonder, even after the crisis abates, what will life be like?
Our journey in these days is very much like that of the disciples after the resurrection. If you think about their experience, their entire world had been rocked by Jesus’ death and resurrection and they had to find a new way. They had to settle into a new normal. Many of their fears and adjustments parallel ours. This gives us an opportunity to learn from them.
In the weeks after Easter we will reflect on issues that we face in today’s world and how they were very much in line with what the disciples faced. We will see how they navigated to their new normal and we will envision what a new normal looks like for us.
Like the disciples, we have been so blessed for so long, which means we have some painful readjustment of our expectations that need to take place. But just like the disciples, we have the Holy Spirit and blessedness of a united community through which the love of Christ is made known.
We have been livestreaming worship. Prior to the pandemic, we intentionally avoided live streaming because we believe that the essence of church is best understood and ingested in community. Our new normal in these days is to allow folks to have a sense of being remotely fed by community.
Series Scripture Readings for Weekly Worship & Sermon Topics
April 19: Fear – John 20:19-23
Immediately after the resurrection, Jesus began to come back and visit the disciples. What he found was a group rightly filled with fear. Each of us struggles with the same reality. Fear is an immediate response to the unknown. How do you respond to fear?
April 26: Complacency – Luke 24:36-49
Following Jesus had been a relatively easy thing to do for the disciples. Wherever he went he drew a crowd and he met their needs. This made the crowds grow and the popularity of the group increase. They led a pretty enchanted life, one that created a sense of complacency. Our first-world culture has been very comfortable. Is part of our struggle rooted in our complacency?
May 3: Danger – Luke 24:13-27
The walk to Emmaus was one filled with sadness, as much for how dangerous the world seemed as for anything else. Amid our new normal, we feel that same sense of grief, as our world feels so dangerous now. The fact is, however, for us and for Jesus’ disciples, is that the world has
always been a dangerous place. In our privilege, we have simply lost sight of this reality. How do we live in the midst of danger?
May 10: Self-Sacrifice – Matthew 28: 1-10
On this Mother’s Day, we reflect on the self-sacrifice of the women in the early church and for all women everywhere. Why is it so easy to live striving to preserve ourselves when the road to greatest fulfillment is the road of self-sacrifice? Our mothers demonstrate sacrifice.
May 17: False Information – Matthew 28:11-15
In this information age, we take in so many facts, but we seemingly have so little knowledge. Why is it that we seek to gather and share without regard for wisdom and truth?
May 24: The Call – John 21:15-19
Peter finally got a chance for redemption after his betrayal, but it didn’t exactly turn out as he wanted. The new normal will cause us to reflect on our calling in the world and it will likely not be as easy as we want. How can we seek to be a blessing in the world?
May 31: Pentecost – Acts 2:1-9, 12-18, 37-42
Amidst the dangers and uncertainties, the overarching sentiment of Pentecost is of both joy and hope! The new reality was challenging, but so very fulfilling for life and for the soul!
