A collaboration by the Extraordinary Connection pastors offering a service of remembrance of hope. May God bless and comfort those who are feeling blue this Christmas.
Today you are invited to explore the Ignation Method of reflecting on scripture, calling on all your senses as we encounter Luke 10:38-42.
Think about the places and encounters you have had this week - have you noticed God's presence? As you go about your day today, may you open yourselves up to God's presence and not be caught saying "God was here, but I didn't know it."
Today Pastor Kayla offers a reflection on Matthew 14:11-33, specifically verse 27 - Be encouraged. It's me. Don't be afraid." Great words for this time of COVID as we prepare our young people to go back to school, as we continue to face so many unknowns. Be encouraged, remember that Jesus is with us and comes to us in our storms of life!
In Romans 15:14-15, Paul writes to the church in Rome, to a church that was amidst division on a number of theological issues that there is good in each of them. In reflecting on the divisions that exist in our world, how are we seeing the good in others, Christ in us in the times when we disagree?
Pastor Kayla invites you to join in the Spiritual Practice of Lectio Divina today for our devotional on Mark 1:14-20.
