    Praying the Scripture with Pastor Mike, Mark 9:1-13

    Praying the Scripture with Pastor Mike, Mark 9:1-13

    Dear Members and Friends of First UMC Colleyville:

    This is our third week of praying the Scripture Lesson for Sunday together. Once again I have provided you with a variety of experiences from both Protestant and Catholic prayer traditions. Make sure that with each mediation you have a pen or pencil and paper. You might even want to invest in a journal or notebook to record your experiences.

    This week’s scripture is Mark’s version of the Transfiguration (Mark 9:1-13). In 9:1 Jesus tells His disciples that some of them will not taste death until they see the Kingdom of God coming with power. That verse introduces the Transfiguration in which Jesus is seen as the fulfillment of the both the Law (as depicted by Moses) and Prophets (as depicted by Elijah). The disciples’ presence coupled with Jesus’ radiance demonstrates the power promised in Verse one.  Peter, James and John are the witnesses who saw the kingdom coming in power.

    DAY 1 – Bible Meditation Podcast #1241

    When you go to this link, skip the first meditation and pray #1241: Mark 2-9 Gospel Meditation.  We will pray the top meditation on day 5.

    DAY 2 – Lectio Divina

    This link will take you to the Lectio Divina website that we use on Thursdays for Lectio Divina.

    DAY 3 – Sacred Space

    This link gives you the text and then several meditative questions to help you find where this passage speaks to your life.

    DAY 4 – Lectio Divina by the British Bible Society

    For today’s Lectio Divina prayer, turn to page 6 , The Second Sunday of Lent, March 8 in the pdf.
    Please click this link.

    DAY 5 – Bible Meditation Podcast #1242

    Return to the same link as Day 1 but now pray Meditation #1242. It’s the same passage as before but with a different prayer focus.

    DAY 6 – 3-Step Themed Scripture Meditation

    This prayer invites us to look at the text in three ways: Encounter, Follow & Respond.

     

    Thank you for praying with me this week. I hope this not only makes the sermon more meaningful but that you find yourself drawing closer to Jesus each day.

    Grace and Peace –
    Pastor Mike

    Taking the Next Step

    Taking the Next Step

    Last year we planned to begin The Taking Next Step Stewardship campaign and sermon series, God’s Extravagant Generosity, on Sunday, March 15, 2020, but the COVID pandemic required us to pivot at the last minute and postpone the campaign to Lent 2021. We are excited to now officially kick-off the campaign and series!

    We invite you to join us Sundays, February 28 – March 21 for our Taking the Next Step campaign and sermon series, God’s Extravagant Generosity. In this series, we acknowledge that living generously is an essential part of following Christ. Giving is not about the church’s need for money but about our need to give to grow in our faith. Throughout this series, we will discover ways God uses our giving to change us, our community, and our world.

    To help us all grow deeper in faith during this series, we will be sending out daily devotionals from Robert Schnase’s book Practicing Extravagant Generosity beginning on Monday, February 21. You may have received the hard copy of the book last year, but if you can’t find it, don’t worry, we will be sending the devotionals each morning to your email.

    Ash Wednesday Service 2021

    February 17, 2021 at 11:20 am · · Comments Off on Ash Wednesday Service 2021

    Ash Wednesday Service 2021

    Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, and it is a service for us to confront our humanity and confess and repent of our sin before God within a community of faith. We invite you to join us for our Ash Wednesday service at 7:00 p.m. February 17 through the Livestream on the church website and Facebook page.

    Important Note: We had planned for volunteers and staff to deliver Lent in a Bags (which included a Lenten devotional and ashes) this week before the Ash Wednesday service. However, the hazardous driving conditions prevented us from doing so. As an alternative, we encourage you to make your own ashes for the Ash Wednesday service–either through soil, olive oil, ash from a candle wick or wood-burning log (not Duraflame logs!), or a charcoal pencil. You can watch this video for ideas on how to prepare ashes at home.
