Fall Worship Series: Faithful Love

Faithful Love
Community Mennonite Church
Fall 2015

We continue our fall worship series following the Biblical history stories that our children are learning in their Sunday School classes. Arriving in a Promised Land, God’s people face challenges of creating a just society, developing leaders, and learning to trust God in a changing context. We also discover the connections between Israel’s history, the ministry of Jesus, and our own life as a witness to Jesus Christ in Harrisonburg and the surrounding community.

The seven abstract Anabaptist icons written by Mennonite artist, Kathryn Fenton serve as a visual focus for this series. Kathryn chose seven doctrines: Trinity, Christ, Scripture, Salvation, Sacraments, Discipleship and Nonviolence. The icons draw us toward God, and deeper into our Anabaptist tradition, while also evoking new ground for faithful living, especially through contemplative and aesthetic dimensions of our Christian spirituality. We’ve chosen a Taizé hymn for contemplation during this series: Come and fill our hearts with your peace. (At left: Trinity icon)
