Creative Worship

    Again this winter we are fully engaged in developing our own blend of contemporary worship music along with Christian worship forms that are old and new.   Where once we rotely recited the Apostle’s creed, old and venerated as it was, we now read aloud new affirmations of faith.  With our Dakota Road service we use an affirmation of faith that begins as follows:

   We believe in one Maker God , the Weaver, who weaves the tales of all people into one great tale, one tapestry.  We experience God in many ways: from a mother’s embrace, to a bird in flight , to moonlight on winter snow.  Still it is a God we can never fully understand or name.

    We believe in Jesus, God with us, who was birthed into this world by Mary, a young woman, who to some was still a child. Not knowing fully why,  she had faith to let the miracle be made real in her....We believe in Jesus, a brother, who died, not by accident, but because the story he preached and lived went beyond what was familiar and comfortable.

    That is not to say that our worship is rock and roll. But that we are moving to make worship services accessible to young and old, to new music and liturgy as well as to the best of the traditional.

Never Been a Night Like This

Cantata – From Dec. 21 st

   Where you there on that first Christmas night?  In listening to the contemporary Christmas song, “Breath of Heaven” we know the great mystery and the divine presence, the breath of God.  We do not have to have been there with Joseph, Mary and the Christ child.

Music is one path to immerse oneself in the joy of that first Christmas night.  This year we sang a Christmas musical by Lloyd Larson that is alive to that first Christmas in both traditional and non-traditional songs.
