Mountain Sky Area leaders to host Lenten daily worship

February 27, 2017

All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. 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 2:44-47

This Lent, Bishop Oliveto and the Joint Cabinet of the Mountain Sky Area invite you to a simple, 20-minute worship service starting at 6:30 a.m. every morning, excluding Sundays, through the 40 days of Lent.  

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 today, there are many Christians around the world who still make a practice of worshipping daily with one another.  

Why don't we?  Why can't we? The answer is, thanks to technology, we can and so we should. It’s as simple as clicking on a link on your computer, tablet, or smart-phone, or making a phone call.

The service will be a brief time of scripture reading, a 5-minute devotion, and a time to pray for one another concluding with the Lord’s Prayer. Each day’s service will be led by various conference leaders and members of the Joint Mountain Sky Area Cabinet.  

To participate, simply click on the link listed below or call in using the phone number provided every morning, excluding Sundays, at 6:30 a.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.
