January in the Chapel

January 13, 2018 by Beth Richardson

Every Wednesday at 10:45 a.m. we gather to worship in The Upper Room Chapel. We are joined by staff from The Upper Room, United Methodist Agencies, and guests from the area and around the world. Central to the work of The Upper Room, this worship and prayer time inspires, uplifts, and encourages us.

We pray when things are good and we pray with things are hard. When we don’t have words to express our concern for the difficulties in the world, our hearts join together to pray on behalf of the world. All are welcome in this place. If you are ever in the area, we welcome you to join us.

Jesus is speaking to us . . .

"Many of us are used to the idea that we might speak to God or to Jesus. Maybe at times it feels like shouting into the darkness or whatnot, but it’s not hard to do—at least as an imaginative exercise. What’s harder—even imaginatively—is to try to hear Jesus speaking to us. Are we just making things up? Are we just using Jesus as a puppet to say whatever we want to hear?" READ MORE
