Palm Sunday Invitation to Join Us LIVE

PALM SUNDAY SERVICES

With the increased order to “Shelter in Place”, I have asked everyone to stay at home for the next two Sundays. I realize that it is so very hard to miss church and especially these two very special services, Palm Sunday and Easter, (not to mention Sonny’s amazing Easter Breakfast). 

As Christians it is important for us to set the example and follow guidelines issued by our National and State Leadership. This is not fearful, but wise to limit exposure. COVID-19 is no respecter of person, age or health. Some of us could even be carrying the virus without ever being sick. I, for one, do not want to take the chance of being such a carrier.

Because of the lack of physical connection. I am posting morning devotions beginning today and going through Easter. Each day I will be speaking about the events that took place on that day during Biblical times. You can watch on the church Facebook or Website.

 

So, Sunday morning, I will be Live on your computer, tablet or phone, at 10:00 am EDT (a time change to help avoid the high internet traffic between 11 and 12 on Sundays). I hope this works for everyone. Again, I will record (if I remember to hit the button) and repost in later on Facebook and our website, rlsuffolk.org.

Excerpts from the Prayer of St. Patrick of Ireland

Last Evening Judy and I watched the Movie “I Am Patrick” made by CBN. The Story of a Young man, taken by Pirates, sold into slavery, taken to Ireland, escaped to home, only to be called by God to go back to that land to preach the Gospel. It is the story of St. Patrick.
Here are excerpts from what is know as “Patrick’s Breastplate” or His Prayer of Protection. .
 
I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth with His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.
 
I arise today, through The strength of heaven,
The light of the sun, The radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire, The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind, The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth, The firmness of rock.
 
I arise today, through
God’s strength to pilot me,
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a multitude.
 
Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
 
I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of creation.


Adhering to the “Stay At Home” order

Good Morning Radiant Life Family,

It is with a very heavy heart that I need to announce there will be NO “in Church” services for the next two weeks. For the past few weeks we have gathered in a very small group to conduct our online services. But, with the rapidly growing rise in confirmed cases, the orders from the President and Governor, I feel it is our responsibility to protect others from any possible contamination.

We all have to go out for food and medicines, and no matter how far apart we try to stay, we could possibly be exposed to the virus.

What makes this especially difficult is the timing. Missing Palm Sunday and Easter is a great disappointment, but if someone could be exposed, that would be even worse.

I will still do a Live Message on Sundays (I will be Live at 10:00 am instead of 11:15 like the past two weeks), and will post the recording on the church Facebook and our church website and phone app. I am also working on more postings during this Holy Time for the church.

Remember, when we pray, we do not inform God of our need, for “your Father knows what you need before you ask him” (Matthew 6:8). We do not convince him to do the right thing, for he promises, “I have loved you with an everlasting love” (Jeremiah 31:3). We do not force him into action, for our Lord is the “King of kings and Lord of lords” (Revelation 19:16).

Instead, prayer positions us to receive what only God’s Grace can give. When we pray, we enable God to mold us into the character of Christ (Romans 8:29). We draw close enough to him that we can hear his Spirit’s voice in our hearts. And he uses our intercession, influence, and ministry to advance the Gospel.

Please stay safe, stay at home, pray and rest in the arms of Jesus

God Bless You

Pastor Don

Ps. If you know of any needs or prayer concerns, please let me know.

Report on Sunday, March 29 Broadcast

Week number 2 of Live Video Services.

The first week I forgot to turn on my microphone.

Week 2 I did get the mic on before starting time, but I forgot to “record” it so I could find out what I did wrong, lost “control” of the meeting and couldn’t get out of that mode,  and went too long and got cut off in the middle of Communion.

At least more people got to see my struggles this week……… LOL.

Thank everyone for being brave enough to make connection. We still have several weeks of this confinement before it is over. We will continue to try to broadcast the services.

We are working on another technology that will allow us all to drive to church, sit in our cars and participate in that manner at least for Easter Sunday………  I hope it goes better than what we have done so far.

Again, I apologize that I cannot send the video of the service this week.

God Bless, Stay Calm, God is still in better control than I am of the situation.

Pastor Don.
