Governor Greg Abbott's executive order requires all Texans to wear a face covering in public spaces.
Therefore the leadership of Mercy Hill Church is requiring all participants 10 years of age and older to wear a face covering while attending our worship service at the Hilton Garden Inn (this is a requirement of our hotel as well).
Please read through this page for our protocols so you know what to expect as we gather for worship at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Here is a copy of our worship service to print out to bring along with you.
And here is what we'll be studying in the Scriptures this Sunday...
"There is no peace on earth...."
The musical group, Casting Crowns, unearthed for me a powerful poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow called “Christmas Bells” (1863).
Their version is called, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.”
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men
And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth, I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men
For me, this is one of the most honest and deeply felt songs of Christmas.
How do we make sense of the Advent season we just celebrated when hate is still strong and mocks the songs of peace on earth and good will to men?
This last Sunday of the year, we're going to look at Mary's revolutionary song she sang as she contemplated the implications of the birth of her son.
She rejoiced that the world would be turned upside down, the proud humbled and the humble exalted.
We hope you can join us online through our Facebook livestream or in personthis Sunday at 10am as we wrap up the Advent season seeking to magnify the Lord with Mary's revolutionary song of Christmas.
