We had quite a day at Solomon’s Porch yesterday for our first worship service! The worship team led us in song, Aaron (our resident liturgist) led us in a collective prayer, and Pastor Elijah brought a message about trusting the Holy Spirit to lead us into a different way of being–more just, more compassionate, more inclusive. More like the Kingdom of God, in Jonesboro as it is in Heaven.

At the close of service, we gathered around the communion table and shared the bread and the cup. We thanked God for inviting us to be the Body of Christ. And then we joined hands and sang,

“Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.”
