Seven Habits For Spiritual Living, Part 3: Prayer

Who needs a little help or encouragement? I suspect we all do. One thing we can do to facilitate this is to work on developing a habit of praying regularly. Logically, if there is a God that created us and is the source of life, love and understanding then it would make a lot of sense to connect with our creator as much as possible so we can tap into more of God’s life, love and understanding.

This Sunday: Let’s talk about prayer.

Seven Habits For Spiritual Living, Part 2: The Discipline of Learning

Why is it so important to always keep learning? Why does it matter whether I learn the truth or not? What is so special about the Bible or Word of God? Why should I read it and study it? Can’t I just follow my instincts and figure things out as I go?

The habit of continually learning will help us in all aspects of life, and when it comes to our spiritual life it holds untold benefits that will enrich our life forever.

Seven Habits For Spiritual Living, Part 1: Self Reflection

If you would like to develop a stronger and healthier spiritual life there are habits you can develop that will make a big difference. What would a stronger and healthier spiritual life look like? It would look like the ability to find peace and contentment in any moment regardless of what is happening around us or within us. It is also a state of being or character that we carry with us from this world into the next–a character of kindness, goodwill, usefulness and integrity.

We are going to discuss these habits and hopefully begin developing them one by one beginning this Sunday.

Rising Above “Us” vs. “Them” Thinking

Have we created a divide between those who we consider to be “us” and those we consider to be “them”? Between “us” who we consider to be enlightened and get it and make the right choices and “them” who we believe to be ignorant, don’t get it and are making bad choices? It is an easy thing to do. And yet, not the way Jesus taught us to be with each other.

This week we will look at teachings that say that variety actually makes things more perfect. In other words, someone else’s way of doing things or way of living is part of the same beautiful tapestry. Can we try to cultivate curiosity about why other people are the way they are? Can we challenge ourselves to be patient and take time to look for the good and how others might just be adding goodness and quality to the world. As we read in the book of Romans: “Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are all parts of Christ’s one body, and each of us has different work to do. And since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others.” (Romans 12)

The Power To Change

We all want to make changes in our lives for the better. Yet it can feel impossible to truly enact lasting changes. We can easily reach the limits of holding out hope when we find ourselves disappointed over and over?

We do know change can happen. We have seen people do it. We have even seen it sometimes in ourselves. What is the key? We will talk about that this  Sunday.

Seeing More Of The Good All Around You

Why are some people able to keep positive and find goodness all around them, when so many of us struggle to keep hopeful when bad things happen?

This week we will examine the lens through which we see the world and find if we can change how we view things, in an attempt to find a more hopeful and uplifting perspective.

Making Bad Habits Stop – For Good

All the battles in the Bible picture things we fight against in ourselves in an attempt to make changes in our life. There are a lot of battles.

King Saul is told to go and fight against the Amalekites, an old enemy of Israel and to totally destroy them. He completes half the job, keeping the best sheep and cattle and also taking their king alive.

This attempt of Saul pictures that we sometimes don’t want to give up our habits entirely and so we hold on to certain aspects of it, thinking that is not such a bad idea. But Saul quickly learns that this is not a good idea and that because of his choice he can no longer be the king.

What do you need to give up? What is holding you back? What would it like to be completely free of old, hurtful habits and behaviors? Want to give it a try?

How Involved Is God In Your Life?

It can seem like churches only deal with or talk about the big picture – will I be saved?/will I go to heaven? – rather than recognizing that God is involved in all the smallest details of our life and living it. All of them.
Is God involved in the smallest details of our life? If so, what does it imply for how we live, make decisions, what we ask for in prayer, whether we are stressed or relaxed about the events of our lives?
We will dig into this subject this Sunday. We hope to see you there!
