Reflection for the Week-September 23rd

Grace has been misplaced. Everything seems to be focused on negotiation. Surpassing notions of exchange or “let’s make a deal” however, is the directedness of God for our lives. Dr Gregory J. Laughery

Reflection for the Week- September 16th

Going to work this week or staying at home? Whatever you’re doing in these next moments, hours and days, remember this: God is on a mission. Through the work of Christ in the power of the Spirit, and your acceptance of this, you are in community with the living God and your brothers and sisters from every tribe, nation and tongue. Now that’s awesome.

Reflection for the Week- September 9th

Disconnected and reoriented. Unplugged is not just a term for an MTV acoustic concert, but it can be a metaphor for a life connected to people.  When we’re constantly plugged in we deprive others, and the possibility of a two way interaction is broken. We don’t receive from them, nor can we give to them. We’ve lost the way. Unplug, at least for a good part of your life.

Reflection for the Week- September 2nd

“I desire the joy of the Lord.” Hear it all the time. Problem? Everybody wants it, but the statement is often nebulous as it tends to be rooted in personal experience or a feeling of the moment. While these are no doubt sometimes valid indicators of joy, they fall fleetingly short, and this is because they usually lack the theological force of the conviction. That is, the origin and source of the joy of the Lord, is the Lord, and what he has done, is doing and will do to redeem humanity and restore all things. When joy is rooted in the Lord, it then can become more our own.
