    The Nature of Sin

    Sin. Seems like a pretty straightforward topic, doesn't it? But is it really? We often overlay our own story, our own preconceptions, and our own woundings on our perception of "sin" and it's place in our lives. This Sunday, we'll continue to explore what the Bible has to say about our relationship with Christ and "The Nature of Sin."


    Have a great week!

      Relationships!

      Years ago, someone published the "Ten Commandments of Relationships":


      1. Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

      2. Smile at people. It takes seventy-two muscles to frown, only fourteen to smile.

      3. Call people by name. Music to anyone's ears is the sound of his/her own name.

      4. Be friendly and helpful.

      5. Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure, and if it isn't, learn to make it so.

      6. Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost everybody if you try.

      7. Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

      8. Be considerate with the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy: yours, the other fellow's, and the right one.

      9. Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what we do for others.

      10. Add to this a good sense of humor, a big dose of patience, and a dash of humility, and you will be rewarded manifold through life!


      This Sunday, we'll go deeper into the beauty of "relationship."


      Have a great week!

        Fall!

        Well, I guess it's not "officially" fall yet. However, it seems as though every Labor Day weekend ushers in "fall-like" indicators that summer is about over - kids back to school, longer shadows and foggy mornings. Historically, I've mourned the transition from summer to fall. Probably because I feel cold anytime it's under 75 degrees! However, over the years I've realized that seasons are a beautiful part of God's design, both physically in His creation and in the flow of our lives. And even through we often obsess over the future (will it be a La Nina or an El Nino winter?!), we can always be assured of His guiding hand walking us through these changes. So, as we enter into this next season, I want to encourage you to embrace the journey with joy, knowing that "It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed" (Deuteronomy 31:8).


        Have a great week!

          Rest!

          Leonardo da Vinci wrote: "Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgment...Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and lack of harmony or proportion is more readily seen."


          Labor Day weekend is upon us, and this Sunday we'll see what God's Word has to say about "rest."


          Have a great week!
