Living Water for All

This past Thursday I had the opportunity to preach and lead worship at Earlham School of Religion’s weekly worship service. I have posted here both the video of the service in it’s entirety and the audio of just the sermon.

Audio File: Living Water for All

Order of Service

Song I Celebrate the Inward Light

Song Here I am Lord

Call to Worship
All: Rising water,
One: springing from great depths,
stored up long ago when the stars
first sang together for joy.

All: Living water,
One: like a cup of celebration,
full and running over
all the days of our life.

All: Refreshing water,
One: mysteriously satisfying
so that our youth is renewed
like soaring eagles.

All: Cleansing water,
One: washing deep down
where fingers cannot reach,
making all things new.

All: Surprising water,
One: breaking through the earth
in rocky places
wherever that man Jesus goes.

— B.D. Prewer 1997

  1. Thanks Anna for providing my morning worship today. It’s wonderful to hear your inclusive message, one that’s so familiar to me as a Swedenborgian, even if I haven’t always seen it practised. And especially wonderful to hear/see you preaching it!
    Love and cheers!

  2. For some reason my computer won’t play the video, but I have listened to the sound file. Your talk is so well-worked, so well thought out. Very impressive, very artistic, and very well presented. Changed my perspective of the woman by the well. Thanks.

  3. I am so glad that this post waited patiently on my computer until I got to watch it….
    Thank you, Anna. Well thought out, and well delivered. Lots to chew on as I go along in my day.
