Passage

James 1:17-27
In the World - It isn't only Sunday

Spiritual Re-boot

The hope of Christmas music faded from the airwaves at midnight on December 25. The glow of New Year's dreams and visions has been dialed back.  The visa bill arrived in the mail.  And somehow the promise of light in the darkness gives way to the shadow. In the dead of winter, its time for a spiritual re-boot.  Join us Sundays to plant yourselves in the practices of presence.

Sunday, January 6:   Galatians 5:16-26.  Getting grounded.  Here's the Sunday to get your feet back on the ground.

Sunday, January 13:   Romans 12:1-4    Here's the Sunday to un-plug not just the Christmas tree.  Un-plug from the assumptions and mis-conceptions that confuse us.

Sunday, January 20:   Ephesians 3:14-21    Here's the Sunday to practice the presence of God as the alternative to confusion and overloaded circuits.

Sunday, January 27:  James 1:17-27  Here's the Sunday to lift our eyes and see the world the way it really is and practice the presence of justice. * Please note: there is no video from this week's sermon as it was an all ages worship- but a link to the story read in community time has been provided. The story shared in worship was about the 10 Commandments- rules for everyone to live by, even if you aren't a church-goer.
