Morning Watch

In addition to our Sunday services, Morning Watch discussions provide an opportunity for preachers and special presenters to assist attendees in their ongoing spiritual development. Through talks, individual and group reflections, and conversations with the discussion leader, participants grow in their knowledge of the Christian faith and other important inter-religious topics.

Morning Watch Discussions

Morning Watch discussions will be offered as follows, 9:00-10:30 am.

July 5: Rev. Dr. James Brenneman.......................................................Porter Hall 9:00-10:30 am:
Rev. Dr. James Brenneman, President at Goshen College in Goshen, IN. "Lincoln's Understanding of God's Will Case Study: Plowshares or Swords?" Reading Isaiah 2:2-4 versus Joel 3:9-12. Lincoln: "Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully." Second Inaugural Address "The will of God prevail—In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be wrong. God cannot be for, and against the same thing at the same time. In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is somewhat different from the purpose of either party—and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaptation to effect this." Meditations on Divine Will.
