Join us online for our Sunday morning worship service on July 19 at 11:00 a.m. with Chapel Dean Luke A. Powery preaching the sermon. The service will also include prayers, scripture reading, organ music, and hymns, as we continue our focus this summer on the Psalms.
The scriptures for this Sunday point us toward the kind of people we should be before God. Psalm 101 goes beyond mere singing about the love and justice of God to striving for a life of integrity. Psalm 96, sung in today’s service, reminds us that “all the earth” is called to the vocation of singing to God, because the heart of our calling is praise. The Beatitudes in Matthew 5 lead us to know that we are not only called to act, but to be a people of a certain character—poor in spirit, meek, merciful, pure in heart, and more. These scriptures guide us to reflect on matters of our hearts, along with the heart of what it means to follow God.
Please note: The Chapel is closed to visitors and all in-person services, concerts, and other events remain canceled until further notice. We continue to pray regularly for Duke, Durham, the nation, and the world, and offer online resources for prayer and livestreams of services. We also continue lamenting injustice and those who have died. We invite you to engage online with us.
