Noonday Devotional at Oak Lawn UMC - Dallas' Racist History and Reforming Future

In honor of #Juneteenth, we are reposting this Kuneo service from earlier this week. Kuneo is a worshipping community of Union and they've brought a powerful message in this service. It's a message that helps us understand the importance of liberation as we hold it juxtaposed to the real stories of oppression in our community and our city. To know where we're going, we have to know where we came from. We give thanks for Kuneo for contributing to that understanding.

*****

There are subterranean stories in the Dallas ecosystem that we rarely hear but poke above the surface in street names, statues and institutions. Dallas Truth Racial Healing & Transformation has helped unearth these stories so that we can learn from them and build a more equitable future.

We have a responsibility in the church to be a part of this work. Join us to encounter these stories, see how they are reflected in 2020 realities and name not only the sin, but also our individual responsibilities to craft a new future.

We love you Lord! We trust in you and we sing your praises today. For all the ways you have come to our aid, defended us, watched over us, provided for us, delighted in us and love us we thank you! You are a good God, and we have seen your never ending mercy in our lives time and time and time again. Fill us with your happiness so that we may sing forevermore. In Jesus name we pray, Amen!

Help us able to live well the life you have given usl. Help us, oh God, to walk in the way which is pleasing to you - to love others as we love ourselves. Where we fall short of doing this, pick us up, dust us off and send us back on our way down the path. Forgive us our faults, and enable us to live our life well.

Hey y'all, due to some unforeseen circumstances, we need some help with meals this week. If you can help, email Cliff Bohaker at [email protected]:

**Wednesday 6/17 - 2 volunteers from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM - no cooking involved, just handing out to go meals from the trunk of vehicle in parking lot

**Thursday 6/18 - 2 volunteers from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM - no cooking involved, just handing out to go meals from trunk of vehicle in parking lot

**Sunday 6/21 - 3 volunteers from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM - no cooking involved, just handing out to go meals from trunk of vehicle in parking lot

Thank you to those who tune in regularly! If the demand increases again, we'll go back to every weekday. 😃

June 16th: “As you go, make this announcement: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those with skin diseases, and throw out demons. You received without having to pay. Therefore, give without demanding payment.” Matthew 10:7-8 (CEB)
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••
We can see clearly enough what is near us, O God. We see hatred and violence, racism and cruelty. We see sick jokes and callous indifference to the deaths of our brothers and sisters. Much of what we see near us causes us grief and sorrow. Thank you for the message that in Jesus the dominion of heaven came near to us. In Jesus’ healings, integrity, courage against injustice, exuberant love, and faithfulness, something of the dominion of heaven began to come into focus in this world. We thank you for the hope and joy that Jesus’ ministry and resurrection give us.
ºººº
We accept the ministry you gave the disciples and now to us. We rejoice that we can bring healing of body, mind, and spirit to others. We feel amazed that we can raise the spirits of those who feel dead inside, and that we can bring to life hopes that have flickered out. Give us courage to go among those on the outside who need to be welcomed back. Empower us to stand up to the demonic, to the evil in the world.
ºººº
Thank you for Pastor Isabel’s sermon on June 14. Motivate us to get our hands dirty, to listen to the crowds, to hear the voices of those crying out. Show us that now is the time to act, to take a stand, to make a difference. Work through us, O God. You do not need us, but you allow us to share in the work that you do in the world. In the name of Jesus, who brought the dominion of heaven near. Amen.

June 15th: "The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: 'I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.'" -Jeremiah 31:3
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Lord, it's true! Your love is forever - it is unconditional in a way we cannot fathom. We can only ask to be made more aware of the height, depth, and breadth of your love. And as you make us aware of your love, show us what it means to love others as you have loved us. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
