GUILFORD -- "Let Justice Flow Like Streams" and other classic Labor Day hymns will frame the 10 a.m. worship service at Guilford Community Church, UCC.
The summer season’s focus on stewardship of the earth will come to a close and the congregation will look to a month focused on the deeper and more personal and spiritual challenges of stewarding God’s creations. This Sunday’s scripture includes both Isaiah’s vision of a world of justice for all and John’s dream of a new world where all suffering has passed away.
The choir will offer a Moses Hogan original, "I Want to Thank You, Lord" and an original composition by Mary Alice Amidon based on the Emily Dickinson poem entitled,"If I Can Stop One Heart from Breaking."
Aiden Meyer and Isaac Freitas Eagan will act out a poem describing the labors of the queen and worker bee for the children’s story and Pastor Lise Sparrow will offer reflections on "making all things new," a quote from Revelations. This is the last service of the summer season. Sunday School for the year will begin next week, on Sept.9.
