Dear Truro Family,
Every Tuesday afternoon, our staff gathers for a weekly time of fellowship, worship, updates, and prayer. For the last several months, we have been opening our meeting with the service of midday prayer from the Book of Common Prayer (2019) from the Anglican Church in North America.
One of the Psalms recommended in that service is Psalm 126, and so we’ve been saying this together often. What an encouragement to God’s people, as we read:
1 When the LORD overturned the captivity of Zion,
then were we like those who dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter
and our tongue with shouts of joy.
3 Then they said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
4 Indeed, the LORD has done great things for us already,
whereof we rejoice.
5 Overturn our captivity, O LORD,
as when streams refresh the deserts of the south.
6 Those who sow in tears
shall reap with songs of joy.
7 He who goes on his way weeping and bears good seed
shall doubtless come again with joy, and bring his sheaves with him.
In all seasons, and in all situations, we can say in faith: The Lord has done great things for us. And the Lord will do great things for us. We can trust him, even when we can’t see him or hear him. We can hope in him, even when we don’t understand his ways. This is true for us as individuals, and for us as a church.
“Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.”
Your Truro Clergy
