What parable do you want to tell with your life?
Would you rather be shackled by sin or yoked to God?
Let’s try to understand the Trinity with our hearts.
The Holy Spirit helps us listen…and truly hear.
Have you ever heard anyone say “Don’t be such a doubting Thomas!”? It’s a phrase that has come to refer to anyone who is skeptical, anyone who demands concrete proof and direct personal experience as a condition for belief. Of course, that saying developed based on this passage of the Gospel that we heard this…
We are a liminal people, because we know that that is where growth and change happen.
We all have moments of blindness…and are invited to see the world with the eyes of God.
Identity and relationship are at the heart of transforming the world.
We are Mary. We are Joseph. We bring Christ alive in the world. We protect and nurture all that is holy.
If you always strive to be who you are made to be, you find yourself being better suited and ready to do whatever duties that the world puts on you.
The relationships we build with our pets and with our children draw us closer to God, that they teach us about God.
