Mother’s Day

For mother’s day:

From Psalm 139

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
 if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
  if I settle on the far side of the sea,even there your hand will guide me,
 your right hand will hold me fast.

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
 your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Thank you God, you loved us before we were born, you know us even better than we know ourselves, your presence never leaves us and your love for us never ceases.

You are our God, our loving, nurturing God, who, like a mother, knows us intimately, loves us unconditionally, teaches us the way we should go, and comforts us in times of need.

Praise God,  the Source and Sustainer of life!

Up and running!

Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated our first worship service together. It was great to have Susan von Hesse speak about the story of Lazarus being raised from the dead.

We meet every Sunday at 10:30am in the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Erlangen and we’d love to see you there!
