SelahPause, Breathe, Love (The Psalms).
The word selah, which occurs in the Psalms, most likely refers to a musical interlude or pause. Summer is like a pause or needed rest. May the Holy Spirit cause us to pause, renew, worship and then empower us for loving service in Jesus’ name.
This Sunday, August 26 is the last focus on this theme. The Psalm for the day is Psalm 139.
Jazz Service – August 26 (morning services) – Along with regular pianist/organist Fred Johnson, playing will be Pete Jonas (guitar),True Swayne (Bass), and Andres Hernandez (Drums).
