Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. -Acts 2:46-47
This summer, Bishop Karen Oliveto and the Joint Cabinet of the Mountain Sky Area invite you to a simple, 20-minute worship service every Monday through Friday at 9 p.m starting June 5 and running through July. Daily worship was one of the marks of the earliest followers of Jesus mentioned in Acts. John and Charles Wesley’s Holy Club made it a practice to meet together every day for devotional reading and prayer. In Life Together, Dietrich Bonhoeffer describes in detail both the need for and practice of daily morning worship among the body of believers.
Although daily gathered worship has become almost inconceivable to American Protestants, there are many Christians around the world who still make a practice of worshipping daily with one another. This past Lent we proved we, too, can do it as 40 to 50 early-birds joined us every morning. This time we are ready for the night-owls. It’s as simple as clicking on a link on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, or making a phone call.
The service will be a brief time of scripture reading, a 5- to 10-minute devotion, and a time to pray for one another concluding with the Lord’s Prayer. Services will be led by Cabinet members, conference leaders, pastors and lay leaders selected from across the Mountain Sky Area. To participate, simply click on the link listed below or call in using the phone number provided every weeknight at 9 p.m. The link is to a Zoom video meeting so the first time will require a few minutes to install some software. Your device will also need audio and video capabilities.
