Acts 1:12-14; Psalms 27:1,4,7-8; I Peter 4:13-16; John 17:1-11
A five-year-old child was taken to church for the first time by her grandmother …
From the altar came the words, ìLet us pray,î and the little girl saw everyone around her bow their heads. ìGrandma, what are they looking for?î she asked.
Good question! What were all those church-goers looking for? In our coming together here today, what are we looking for?
The renowned poet and playwright, Archibald MacLeish, once was invited to participate in a special worship service at Harvard Universityís Memorial Church …
He was to lead the students in morning prayer. But MacLeish refused on the grounds that his religious skepticism made him unfit for the assignment.
A few hours later, he changed his mind and accepted the invitation. ìIíll do it,î he said, ìbut one thing must be clear. Iím not at all convinced that Christianity has all the answers weíre looking for. But I do think it has the right questions.î
We, of the faith, are convinced of course…
