SERMON: Grace in the House of Mercy – Rev. Paul Dakin

SCRIPTURE: John 5:1-9

ANTHEM: Footsteps of Jesus – Chancel Choir

HYMN SPOTLIGHT
Psalm 42 (1975)
Danna Harkin, b. 1938
This hymn is a paraphrase of the first few verses of Psalm 42. The author of the psalm likens his longing for God to a deer’s longing for refreshing water. Christians reading these words might recall John 4:14 where Jesus tells the Samaritan woman that “Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” Or perhaps of John 7:37-38, where speaking of the Holy Spirit, Jesus declares, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scriptures say, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
