Time of Worship and Prayer to get through the last weeks of school

28-30"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly." From Matthew 11:28&ff, the Message

The last three Sundays this semester the PSF will sponsor a time of prayer and reflection for students starting at 7 pm at First Presbyterian Church.  Each week will have a specific theme:  Faith, Love, Hope.  Anyone can bring in something that reflects the theme:  scripture, art, music, story, etc to share during worship.  However, you don't have to contribute anything and are welcome to come and enjoy a time of learning the unforced rhythms of grace that Christ has laid before us.

Themes for each week and quotes to ponder. . .
April 18 (Faith):  I love the recklessness of faith.  First you leap, then you grow wings. (William Sloane Coffin)

April 25 (Love):  I believe God is love:  God loves the world.  I believe God loves the world with various kinds of love--the love of creator, a friend, a mother and father, an artist, a lover, a scientist.  (Sally McFague) If we hate ourselves, we can never love others, for love is a gift of oneself. How will you make a gift of that which you hate?  (Coffin)

May 2 (Hope):  But Christ being risen dies no more.  In Christ's resurrection death is not postponed; it is overcome.  (Albert Curry Winn)  Hope criticizes what is, hopelessness rationalizes it.  Hope resists, hopelessness adapts.  (Coffin)
