I am looking forward to another great Advent season of classes at Evangelical Lutheran Church on Wednesday nights starting November 30th at 6:30-7:45 p.m.
The downtown historic district of Frederick is full of beautiful churches that have elegant spires watching over us as we travel through our busy week.
These spires proudly contain church bells that harken us to our individual hours of worship on any given Sunday. I love to hear these grand old voices as they regularly remind us of the sacred nature of our lives and provide a feeling of continuity to our week punctuated by prayer.
Church bells have been used since 400 A.D. throughout the Christian world to call the faithful into prayer 3 times a day, 6:00 a.m. – noon – 6:00 p.m.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of these church bells from around the world. They call us to worship and unity a community in prayer.
Find rest, o my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my Fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. ~ Psalm 62: 5-8
