Amid the exuberant chatter of friends greeting one another and people they've never met before, hugs and handshakes all around, and children running to get worship bags with activity sheets and crayons, each Sunday, this phrase is heard:
“This is the day that the Lord has made.”
“Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
These words from the Psalms open worship each Sunday at Christ United Methodist Church. They call us to redirect our attention from the many things that concern us to the singular focus of worshipping the God who calls us together in this community.
