City on a Hill

Last night I attended 11-11-11, an ecumenical worship service in Tegs Church. We had planned the day long before we knew it was the Global Day of Worship, and it was an unexpected pleasure to know we had gathered with Christians all around the world to lift up our Saviour on this day.

We are all like little Emmanuel, who articulates very well for a two-year-old, ran around the sanctuary calling,"Pappa! Pappa! I'm calling for my pappa!" It reminded me that we, in much the same way, had come to stand before our Lord and cry "Abba Father!" 

The vicar of the church, himself encouraged by the believers who had come, read a blessing and sent us on our way into the dark night.

May the LORD bless you and keep you;
May the LORD make His face shine upon you,       
And be gracious to you;
May the LORD lift up His countenance upon you,       
And give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26
