Hymn of the Month
This Is The Day The Lord Has Made
This is the day, this is the day, that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made. I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it.
This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made.
Meditational Moments with
Rev. Nancy Hazzard
I love you, O Lord, my strength - Psalm 18:1I AM BLESSED WITH THE STRENGTH
TO DO AND BE MY BEST
There are many types of strength - the physical strength required of my body to perform a particular task, the mental strength of my mind to learn a new skill or take on a new responsibility, and the emotional strength of my heart to surmount a difficult challenge and have the courage to move forward.
Each of these strengths is enhanced as I add my spiritual strength to my experience and trust God for guidance, confidence, and comfort to be effective. As I include the awareness of God in my experiences, I am infused with greater physical energy, I achieve sharper mental acuity, and my heart becomes more peaceful and calm. I know that with God I have the strength I need - both inner and outer to accomplish, achieve, or overcome anything I set my mind and heart to with grit and determination.
An Inspirational Message from Rev. Nancy Hazzard:
My Love is Powerful
I treat myself as if I am someone who is deeply loved. All kinds of events come and go; yet, through it all, the love for myself is constant.
This is not being vain or conceited. People who are vain or conceited have a lot of self-hatred covered over by a layer of "I'm better than you."
Self-love is simple appreciating the miracle of my own Being. When I really love myself, I cannot hurt myself, and I cannot hurt another person. To me, the answer to world peace is unconditional love. It begins with self-acceptance and self-love. I no longer wait to be perfect in order to love myself. I accept myself exactly as I am right here and now.
Masks and Social Distancing are required for all in person services & events:
