An Anthem Played on Broken Strings
Rev. Benjamin Wines
Jeremiah 29:1, 4-14

We look forward to joining you in Worship this Sunday, starting at 11:00AM in the Sanctuary. You can also find our services online at the HVBC YouTube Channel. Today’s sermon is titled, “An Anthem Played on Broken Strings”. We will be reading from Jeremiah 29:1, 4-14, and our Call to Worship comes from Psalm 33.

Call to Worship Psalm 33:1-5, 20-22
Leader: Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous.
People: Praise befits the upright.
Leader: Praise the Lord with the lyre;
People: Make melody to him with the harp of ten strings.
Leader: Sing to him a new song;
People: Play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
Leader: For the word of the Lord is upright,
People: And all his work is done in faithfulness.
Leader: He loves righteousness and justice;
People: The earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.
Leader: Our soul waits for the Lord;
People: He is our help and shield.
Leader: Our heart is glad in him
People: Because we trust in his holy name.
Leader: Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
People: Even as we hope in you.

Questions for Further Reflection:
In this passage, hope is not a quick fix; it’s a process.
How does hope help us grow through difficult times?
How does God’s presence affect that process?
