Doxology Message Series

Pastor Jack Mannschreck

This will be the beginning of a series of messages in which we are seeking proper praise for God as we consider issues of inclusion in the church. The passage for this week provides us with the theme scripture for the entire series: Ephesians 3:20-21. Doxologies are liturgical expressions of praise to our loving Creator; short hymns of praise if you will. Doxology literally means “a study of praise.” While we have just emerged from a very difficult year, the difficulty is not over. As I think through this past year, what are the events and emotions that come to our minds? When you consider this past year, are you focused on the difficulties and acrimony about wearing or not wearing masks, closed businesses, and churches, or when you look back can you see blessings? Can you praise God for anything that happened in 2020? Is there a Doxology that you can share as we say good-bye (or good riddance) to 2020 and enter into 2021 which will no doubt present us with challenges of its own?
