On the surface, visible signs of Christian unity seem lacking. But if you look deeper, you can find signs of shared life, ministry, mission and even corporate expressions. In that spirit, the Wimberley Ministerial Alliance is pleased to invite the community of Wimberley to share in the Good Friday Service, Friday April 14, at noon at the Wimberley United Methodist Church, located at 1200 CR 1492.
Every Sunday morning in Wimberley, churches of different kinds gather to worship in their own distinctive ways, with their own personalities, theological emphases, and ways of governing themselves, in their own worship spaces. It seems to be a far cry from the unity for which Jesus prayed in John 17:20-21 20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
The Good Friday service will be oriented around the ancient Christian tradition of the Stations of the Cross and will be lead by representatives of many of the churches in the Wimberley Valley. An offering will be taken to benefit “Operation Good Shepherd” a joint Ministerial Alliance fund administered by the Barnabas Connection that helps people in need in Wimberley.
Your participation in this service points to the greater reality of the oneness of the Christian church, as well as getting your heart and spirit prepared for the great feast of Easter. Please join us.
