Sunday to Monday | God Has Your Back

 “Ring the bells that can still ring. Forget your perfect offering.”

Leonard Cohen

It was a good morning to gather for worship and praise God for being with us on the journey. We remembered 9/11/01 and considered 9/11/18. Pastor Dave shared the Exodus story in chapter 14:19-31 as God and Moses were leading the Israelites out of slavery - God moved behind them to protect them from the Egyptian army chasing them. That's what God does when we are in times of deep darkness - moves behind to protect and be with us. 

If you missed being with us, you can watch here. Pray with us here. Check out photos from the week's ministry: 

For your week's reflections, devotions and conversations. 

  • Where was God on 9/11/01? Where is God on 9/11/18? (See Exodus 14 for reflection.
  • Where were you on 9/11/01? Where are you spiritually in terms of processing 9/11 on 9/11/18? (See Luke 23:34 and wrestle with the images of 9/11/01 and what Christ is telling us now.)
  • Watch Paul Simon’s song, “American Tune” and prayerfully consider the words.
  • Read Matthew 5:1-12. (The Beatitudes) out loud each day for a week. What thoughts and phrases stand out?
  • Where is peacemaking needed in your life: personally, locally, globally, or all of the above?
  • How can you be God’s agent of peace in the next 5 minutes?
  • Looking ahead to next week: If you could have one great argument, what would be the topic? Who would you address? See Mark 9:30-37 for inspiration.

First off I would like to say excellent blog!
I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if
you don't mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
ideas or hints? Thanks!

Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at
alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
a good platform.
