Come & Worship in Just Such a Time as This

Come and worship!
How can we worship in “such a time as this”? 

Yes, the world feels hopeless but come and worship!
Why worship in “such a time as this”?

Yes, human kindred don’t listen to one another. Friends worry about winning at the expense of joy, but come and worship!
Who is there to worship in “such a time as this”?

Do not let the world steal your joy! Turn to the divine embedded in creation and creator especially now.
Where is the joy in “such a time as this”?

Look around you. God has not left you. God is present in the struggle and in the heartache. God is present in neighbor, enemy, and family. God calls most emphatically in “just such a time as this!”
But it’s hard to perceive!

Come and worship anyway!
We are here. We have come to worship in “just such a time as this!”
