cord bannerThe worship theme for January 11, 18, and 25 centered on the idea of covenant. On January 18, to symbolize the diversity that each of us represents and the unity in Christ that binds us together, we tied representative “cords” end-to-end. These were knotted into a banner which was hung on the 25th for our annual covenant and communion service. The cords at the bottom were left open-ended as a symbol of welcome.
