Title: A Song of Joy
Scripture: Psalm 126:1-6
Speaker: Paul Brandes,

>> Joy is found in history, not distraction.
>> Are you remembering or distracting?
“The enormous entertainment industry in America is a sign of the depletion of joy in our culture. Society is a bored, gluttonous king employing a court jester to divert it after an overindulgent meal. But that kind of joy never penetrates our lives, never changes our basic constitution.”
- Eugene Peterson
>> Again: Distraction will fall short, every time. Only active remembering pulls us outside of ourselves! So are you remembering?
>> Are you asking, or are you hunting?
>> Joy can be found, even in a field of tears.
>> Are you planting or are you despairing?
Need pastoral care?
If you need care for a loss, relationships, marriage, illness, or anything else, please reach out to a pastor. Any of our pastoral staff would be glad to meet with you, as well as connect you with other resources, including counseling.
