Sunday to Monday/ All We Need

Yesterday, we had made plans for an Extreme Community Makeover (ECM) to help some folks get their yards and homes to be something they are proud of.  But you know what happens when we make plans...Spring Weather in Colorado!  The ECM was postponed to early June.  A few folks gathered for casual worship at 9 am and we celebrated God's presence with all of us, wherever we are.

Pastor Dave taught on John 20:19-31 and asked us to reflect on a few things...

In John 20:19, Jesus came and stood among the disciples and said “Peace be with you.” When have you felt that peace of Jesus in a time of fear?

When Jesus is among the disciples, John 20:22-23, he breathes on them and tells them to receive the Holy Spirit and that they may forgive sins.  Why is forgiveness a spiritual tool?   What does forgiveness mean to you?

What do you know of the disciple Thomas?  Read about Thomas and the Risen Christ in John 20:24-28.  Where do doubts fit into faith?  What doubts do you need to bring before Jesus?  Can you?

Does the Bible tell the whole story of Jesus?  John 20:30-31 says no, but what is in the Bible tells us everything we need to know to believe.  How is this book, the Bible, a part of your faith journey?   How would you like it to be a part of your journey?

Christmas is a collection of pagan feavltsis that the church tried to hijack and failed!! They therefore celebrate a pagan festival and surely if Jesus existed he would be repelled by that!!But what of Jesus himself?There is not one single mention of Jesus in the entire Roman record that is right not one!!! At the same time as he was supposed to have been around there were a number of Jews claiming to be the messiah all of whom are well recorded!!He was supposed to have been a huge problem to the Romans and produced wonderful miracles but still not one contemporary record?Even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!!At best he was an amalgam of those others!!
