“When In Our Music God Is Glorified” 

Help us accept each other as Christ accepted us; teach us as sister, brother, each person to embrace. Be present, Lord, among us, and bring us to believe we are ourselves accepted and meant to love and love. 

Let your acceptance change us, so that we may be moved in living situations to do the truth in love; to practice your acceptance, until we know by heart the table of forgiveness and laughter's healing art. 

– Fred Kaan, 1975 

This text contains so much power in just a few simple sentences. Do you ever consider how being accepted by God actually changes us? And how being changed affects our lives, our actions, the way we treat others? 

...Moved in living situations to do the truth in love; to practice your acceptance, until we know by heart the table of forgiveness and laughter's healing art. 

May you pray this text this week and meditate on it. May it bless you and change you. Join us for worship this Sunday as we celebrate Holy Communion and welcome the UT Martin Wesley Foundation Band. 

See you at church. Dakota
