As we journey through the first three months of 2019,  our focus has been on  ‘The Disciples in Worship’.  We are reminded that the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands believes that  truly ‘renewed Congregations’ are energized and empowered for development and growth; have members committed to pursuing personal relationships with God through prayer ,study and worship , presenting themselves as ‘light of the world and salt of the earth’ , displaying high  standards of personal and professional integrity and discipline in their ministry, as we seek to live out our vision’  

Last Sunday, February 2, 2019, at the East End United Church, Rev. Alice Blair did two powerful presentations on Guidelines for  Meaningful Corporate Worship and Guidelines for Personal Worship.

UCJCI PEACE CAMPAIGN CONTINUES     PEACE IN THE CONGREGATION 
Peace in the Congregation should be assumed as a ‘given’. After all, are we not called to be ‘peacemakers’  and do we not possess the ‘spirit of peace’? Yet not only in today’s Church but in the New Testament Church, Paul found it necessary to encourage believers to maintain the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace.

January to March 2019-  DISCIPLES IN WORSHIP “Yet a time is coming, and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24 NIV)  At the Heart of the Renewal and Transformation mandate for the United Church, is “life-giving Worship.” Life-giving worship anchors, affirms and activates our faith towards living and being “Disciples for life!”

The reading from the Gospel of Luke this Sunday brings the Magnificat to our attention. Luke’s Gospel, in general, underscores God’s preferential care towards the humble, the hungry, and the deprived, and God’s verdict upon the self-indulgent. Mary’s Song invites us to reflect on the surprising inversion in God’s actions; ‘He has brought down the powerful from their thrones and lifted up the lowly’, He has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty’.

 ‘Joy to the World, the Lord has come’ written by Isaac Watts (16741748) is still one of the most popular Christmas Carols. Originally penned as a poem, based on Psalm 98, it was included in Watt’s work entitled ‘The Psalms of David, Imitated in the New Testament’. The Carol speaks to the Second Coming of the Messiah and was initially entitled ‘The Messiah’s Coming and Kingdom’. For Watts, the Psalms find their fulfillment in the New Testament.
