Each Sunday's Worship is also posted on our Facebook page.
"Holy Vessels" YouTube Worship Series
Each of us is created a precious and holy vessel of embodied love. We have been through some hard times since last Lent which have shattered our sense of wholeness, like a glass vessel fractured into pieces. In this series, we will explore the healing stories of Jesus that tell of divine solidarity with human suffering and remind us that we can begin a journey toward making something beautiful from that which is seemingly broken. Beach glass will be our symbol of this transformative process. You are invited to join Pastor Lyda, Marta, Kimberly, and sometimes Puppy Molly, as we explore physical health, community health, mental health, intellectual health, environmental health, and integrated health in Dr. Marcia McFee's series, "Holy Vessels: A Lenten Season of Recovery." This worships series is published weekly on Westchester United Methodist Church, Los Angeles', YouTube Channel.
