Devotional – Mar 3, 2021

A seemingly innocuous church sign message. A possibly not-so-innocuous response. What does the future hold in a less than United States of America? Join me for a few minutes in Philippians 4:4-7 as I wrap up our series on God's help for anxiety.

Devotional - Mar 3, 2021


Music Today: 'Lay My Worry Down,' Sandra McCracken'
Dark is the night/deep is your love/Great is my need/you are enough.' If you haven't discovered Sandra yet, she is a rich treasure store of hopeful music tied to Scripture.

'Cherry Blossoms,' Andy Squyres
Perfect song for this time of year, for this time of the pandemic.

Olafur Arnalds, 'Re:member'
As far as I know, Arnalds is not a Christ-follower, but this piece is a tremendous aural meditation on Phil. 4:4-5. A peaceful opening blossoms into joy. If I could set my alarm to start each day with this, I would!

Aug 18th 2021 – CUP Church COVID-19 Update

We strongly encourage wearing a mask upon entering the building if you are
Unvaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

The Cup Church session, at its August 17 Session meeting, passed the following resolution:
‘We strongly encourage those who are unvaccinated against the COVID-19 virus to wear a mask
upon entering the building. We will continue to allow masking to be optional in the sanctuary
during worship, except for the section marked ‘mask wearing only.’ We will continue to
evaluate CDC and area leadership guidance on this matter, and prayerfully ask for each person’s
patience and understanding of others during these challenging days.’
‘Love one another, as I have loved you.’ (John 13:34)
