This coming Sunday, we together, internationally and ecumenically, begin reading and praying our way through the first letter to Timothy, followed by the second letter.
What resources do you find useful for this?
What ideas do you have for working our way through this text? What ideas do you have for worship around this text? Hymns? Songs? Video clips? Maps? Stories? Any ideas and resources at all?
This Sunday’s reading is obviously a source for the wonderful hymn with the words by Walter C. Smith, (Hymns of Christ and the Christian Life, 1876); music: St. Denio, (Welsh melody, from Canaidau y Cyssegr, by John Roberts, 1839):
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessèd, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great Name we praise.
Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
