Join Pastor Dave Swaim and his wife Michelle at the start of your day for a short devotional on the book of James.
It has been Highrock's tradition for the whole congregation to contribute to an artistic expression for Easter Sunday. This Easter we are concluding our Lenten sermon series, Unlearn, with ideas for unlearning the habit of despair and developing the habit of hope. As a reminder of the hope we see in Noah’s example and in Jesus’ resurrection, this year's art project is to make two paper origami doves.
The first dove is for you to keep at home as a reminder of the hope we have in Jesus. Even in this season when it may feel like there is so much despair around us, we can have hope in our knowledge that Jesus has overcome death and the grave, and through His resurrection He will make all things new.
The second dove we ask you to send back to Highrock, to be incorporated into our Easter Sunday sermon art installation.
Take a moment to think about something that reminds you of God’s faithfulness and gives you hope for the future. This might be something God did through answered prayer, a person God used in your life, or a Bible verse. What has God done in your life that gives you hope?
Once you have folded the dove, write your reminder of hope on it. If you are comfortable, please write your name on the paper. Pastor Dave may share some of these stories during his sermon as encouragement for us all.
To be included in the art installation, please mail your dove to Highrock (preferred) or email Jill Swilling by noon, Thursday April 9th.
Please use whatever paper you have on hand at home. Any color (even white) is totally fine. The important thing is to make the paper into a square.
