Listen to My Voice

 

Happy Week 4 of Easter! 

This Easter, as we engage and learn from scripture, we look at ways we can live the resurrection in our lives and be ambassadors of that resurrection to the world.  Continuing the sensory journey from the previous weeks, we now go to hearing.  

In Jesus’ parable of the good shepherd, he says that the sheep listen to his voice. They hear his voice and they know his voice.  It’s something sheep do when they are familiar with their shepherd.  Now, what is interesting is that he is speaking of the sheep of other folds, not the ones in front of him.  So, how do we hear the voice of God? How can we be sure were listening to the shepherd and not someone else? 

Let’s open our hearts, our minds, and our ears as we worship together in-person and livestream on Sunday! 

Sunday’s Livestream Service—We recommend logging into your Facebook account a few minutes early, so you can troubleshoot any issues you might have. You can find a direct link to our Facebook page at stpaulsworship.org You will be able to chat once the Livestream service has started. If you don’t have a Facebook account you can also access the Livestream at stpaulsworship.org without the chat feature. There will be a pop-up asking you to log in and in small letters at the bottom you can click “Not Now” and still be able to watch the service. We will also post the Livestream service to YouTube after the service is over.
