This Week’s Reflection -Do Not Be Afraid

Posted by on Jan 27, 2018 in Church News | 0 comments

With remarkable frequency, the first word God speaks to individuals and groups poised at the edge of momentous  decision or holy encounter is this: “Do not be afraid. Do not fear.”  What is intended goes beyond an attitude adjustment on our part.  What is intended are lives empowered by that decisive word, so that “do not be afraid” finds its fullest  expression when we do not live afraid.  Faith does not call us merely to live without fear inside the sanctuary.  Discipleship calls us to confront appeals to fear in the world around us and to live our lives and bear our witness accordingly.  –  John Indermark in Do Not Live Afraid

GIVING ECONOMICS

Posted by on Nov 1, 2017 in Church News | 0 comments

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)

I believe in the law of measures.  If you give big, God will bless big.  That certainly doesn’t mean that you can play God like a slot machine, but if you give for the right reasons, I’m convinced of this: You’ll never outgive God. It’s not possible because God has promised that in the grand scheme of eternity, He will always give back more than you gave up. — Mark Batterson in “The Circle Maker”

This Week’s Reflection

Posted by on Nov 1, 2017 in Church News | 0 comments

Gratitude
Jesus calls us to gratitude.  He calls us to recognize that gladness and sadness are never separate, that joy and sorrow really belong together, and that mourning and dancing are part of the same movement.  That is why Jesus calls us to be grateful for every moment that we have lived and to claim our unique journey as God’s way to mold our hearts to greater conformity with God’s own. The cross is the main symbol of our faith, and it invites us to find hope where we see pain and to reaffirm the resurrection where we see death.
The call to be grateful is a call to trust that every moment of our life can be claimed as the way of the cross that leads us to new life. – Henri J. M. Nouwen, A Spirituality of Living
