Hope Community produces a weekly podcast to complement our Sunday gathering at the Northside Center. Listen in, sing along, pray aloud, reflect on what you hear. This week is a DIY Communion podcast. And, you're invited to send us your questions or comments.

The gospel of Mark recounts Jesus' bold answer to a question about culture. His answer went beyond the Law of Moses, relying upon first principles revealed in the Old Testament book of Genesis. Jesus answered a question about contemporary culture by looking at human origins and divine principles.

Come behold the wondrous mystery
In the dawning of the King
He the theme of heaven's praises
Robed in frail humanity
In our longing, in our darkness
Now the Light of life has come
Look to Christ who condescended
Took on flesh to ransom us

Come behold the wondrous mystery
He the perfect Son of Man
In His living, in His suffering
Never trace nor stain of sin
See the true and better Adam
Come to save the hell-bound man
Christ the great and sure fulfillment
Of the law, in Him we stand

Come behold the wondrous mystery
Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners
Hangs the Lamb in victory
See the price of our redemption
See the Father's plan unfold
Bringing many sons to glory
Grace unmeasured, love untold

Come behold the wondrous mystery
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e'er restrain Him
Praise the Lord! He is alive!
What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when He comes

DIY Communion
Get a bite of cracker or bread, and a swallow of red wine or grape juice.
Then as you listen to
prayerfully, repentantly, thankfully
eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord
in remembrance of what Christ has done and what He has promised.

Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
Was blind but now I see
I see, O— I see

T'was grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
Believed, O— believed
Now I see
I see, O— I see
