I keep looking for a magic formula on “talking to God.” Last week we talked about how everyone prays differently, in their own way. Drawing on various examples of prayer from the Bible, we will talk about praying! Conversations take on a whole new look when we Just Do It.
The last time I remember anyone saying “Can we talk?” to me, it wasn’t a good conversation. Someone called those words “the kiss of death.” In the case of prayer, I want to call them the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Prayer can become a connecting point for each of us, with God and with one another. Come and hear about prayer as we begin a short series Conversations.
John 6:56-69. Maybe not everyone is cut out to follow Jesus? Certainly that is not the premise under which I’ve been operating for all the years I’ve been trying to follow. I regularly make it clear that following is not easy; that truth is not lost on me. I’ll be working on figuring out what this means in the coming days… read the passage and throw your thoughts in a comment.
Beginning Sunday, February 9, at 9:30AM we will gather weekly for 6 weeks to talk about prayer using the book To Pray and to Love by Roberta Bondi as a guide. In order to prepare, it is important to know how many folks will be joining us. Please let Pastor James know if you’ll be joining the conversation.
John 4:46-54. It’s not always clear what we’re looking for when we seek a connection with God in Jesus. When we’re driving on the highway, it’s all about paying attention to the signs to get where we’re going. This week we’ll take a look at this story of Jesus performing a miracle, a “sign.” Maybe it’ll help us figure out some of the signs in our own lives.
Starting Sunday, February 9, we will begin offering short Sunday morning seminars on a variety of topics.
- February 9- March 16 (6 weeks). Prayer. (Read the article) There is a book involved that we read chapter by chapter.
- March 30- April 13 (3 weeks). What Do I Believe?
- April 27- May 18 (4 weeks). Forgiveness Seminar.
Anyone is welcome to join these conversations. We are open to variety of perspectives and respect each person’s viewpoint.
