Holding Faith, Together
For our country, our world, and one another
At Second Presbyterian we have embraced the call to hold faith, together, with prayer and perseverance. We have been reminded of God’s promised presence – throughout scripture and in our own daily bread – and we remember that we are first, followers of Jesus Christ. It is with this central identity – as followers of Jesus Christ who belong to one another – that Rev. Chris Henry has challenged us to faithfully navigate this election season. Standing firm in this united faith, we invite you to come together as the body of Christ and hold our country, our world, and one another in prayer.
Recorded on Monday, November 2
In prayer for our country and our world on the eve of this 2020 election, we come together as the body of Christ. As is our tradition at Second, we faithfully turn to God in prayer and stand firm in our united faith as followers of Jesus Christ. Led by our pastors offering Prayers of the People – for peace, for compassion, and for healing – we will hold our country, this election, and one another in prayer.
Prayers of the People
Recorded Election Day, Tuesday, November 3
Holding prayer in spirit and in unity, the pastoral staff of Second will offer virtual prayers throughout Election Day to anchor and to guide us. The prayer videos – ten in all – will steady and sustain our day as followers of Jesus Christ.
Message from Rev. Chris Henry
Recorded Wednesday, November 4
Embracing our faithful work as people of God, Rev. Chris Henry offers a message to our congregation as we move through a new day. The mission of Second Presbyterian Church – to be a welcoming community of faith where Jesus Christ transforms lives – will still be our call, our work. And as we continue holding faith, together, we meet our nation, our world, and one another with peace, compassion, and healing – ever still.
What is the call of the church, and the role of Christian faith, in such a time as this?
Building on our Faithful Politics series and the sermons preached on September 20 and 27, Rev. Chris Henry led two evening sessions reflecting on how we might faithfully navigate this election season as followers of Jesus Christ who belong to one another.
