Following his baptism Jesus walked into the wilderness and prayed for forty days and during that time was tempted mightily by the devil. Tomorrow at Guilford Community Church, UCC, the 10AM worship service will focus both on the need for wilderness times and for the strength needed to stay anchored in faith during times of struggle. The Sunday School lesson from the Joyful Path curriculum will entertain the question: "what is success?"
The choir under the direction of Peter Amidon will offer two anthems: "Beatitudes", an original composition by Amidon himself, and a traditional spiritual, "Lord Don't Turn Your Child Away". Rev. Lise Sparrow will offer a sermon, "Walking in the Wilderness", based on Matthew 4:1-11 and 5: 1-12. Everyone is welcome.
