Healthy Mind In A Healthy Body

If it is true that we are what we eat, what does that say about our spiritual life?

There is an importance in trying to eat well and be as active as we can be so that we can have a healthy mind in a healthy body. And it is even more important to feed our mind with the kind of things that lead to true intelligence and wisdom.

This Sunday we will explore the connection between healthy living for the purpose of being of service to those around us. How can we best provide for our eternal health and well being?

See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Letting Go, Finding Peace

How many times have we been unable to let go of an idea, opinion, attitude or behavior and because of that have felt trapped or enslaved by it, not to mention, been hurt by it?

The story of the Children of Israel as slaves in Egypt working to make bricks from mud and straw to build monuments for Pharaoh pictures being in bondage to an unhealthy sense of self which manufactures justifications for our behavior and attitude, and which slowly destroys our happiness and peace of mind.

Are you ready to be set free from this kind of disfunction? If so there is a way out.

We will talk about this on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Hope to see you there!

Are We Being Led And Guided or Are We On Our Own?

One of our very human struggles arises around whether we are being led and supported in a path to somewhere good and peaceful or whether we are floundering on our own with no support. When bad things happen or if we are struggling it is easy for us to feel like we are alone and abandoned. When things are going well for us it is easier for us to believe that we are being led.

This Sunday we will talk a little about God’s system of guidance called the Divine Providence. There are certain things about it that are so important to know and that help to make sense of why things happen the way they do. We hope to see you Sunday at 10:30 a.m. or feel free to watch live on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BoulderNewChurch/

Why Is There So Much Warfare In The Bible?

As the Children of Israel entered the Promised Land they were commanded to
destroy the city of Jericho. They do it by circling the city for six days blowing their trumpets. On the seventh day they circle it seven times blowing their trumpets. The seventh time around they make a great shout and the walls come tumbling down. Then they are commanded to completely destroy everyone and everything in the city.

What does God want us to learn by making stories like this part of the Divine message in the Word?

We will talk about that on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. We hope you can join us!

Dealing With Stress, Part 3: Live In Integrity

The best way to ensure that our stress levels go down on a regular basis is to live our life with integrity. We all know that when we act in ways we know we shouldn’t that our anxiety begins to rise and things don’t seem to go as smoothly as would like. Of course, there will be things outside of our control that cause us to feel stressed, but we can make dramatic changes in our overall feeling of well being by doing the right thing–by rejecting selfishness and hurtful behaviors.

We will discuss why this is so and how to do a better job of keeping on track Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Dealing With Stress, Part 2: Worry and Impatience

Many of us are very good at mulling over in our minds bad things that we are worried will happen. This mental activity drains us of vital energy that could rather be used to do useful things, and it also robs us of the possible joy we could be experiencing in the given moment.

This week we will talk about a better way to live and experience daily life: a way that could leave you feeling rather happy.

See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Dealing With Stress, Part 1

Everyone deals with stress. Some stress is healthy. Too much can tear us apart on many levels and remove any sense of well being.

This week we will look at the causes of stress and begin to create a plan to deal with it or perhaps help to remove it – or at least the stressful part of stress.

See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

You’ve Been Forgiven: And Now What?

Jesus said to someone who had blatantly broken one of the commandments, “Your sins are forgiven you.” This story is given to demonstrate to us how we receive forgiveness when we make mistakes and commit trespasses. The question is, what does it mean to be forgiven and what do we do to make it mean something real in our own lives. There is more to this story that helps shed light.

We hope to see you Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at the service.

How Do I Make Wise Choices?

We are faced with a myriad of choices in our lives. Some of those choices have huge repercussions. How do we enter into our decision making with the wisdom we need to make good choices? Join us this Sunday as we dig into this subject. Maybe we will leave a little wiser.

We will also be celebrating mothers on this Mother’s Day. Thank you for the love and wisdom you bring to our lives and the lives of our children!
