In this time in our world, there are many, many “thorns”— those things which torment. It is so easy to see the thorns and miss seeing the Grace. It’s so easy to see the pain around us and hear the crying prayers and miss God’s answer: “My grace is enough for you, because power is made perfect in weakness.”
What does it mean to have the mind of Christ in us? Or, to put it in the words of the CEB, what does it mean to adopt the attitude that was in Christ Jesus? Join us this week in sanctuary worship as we continue our series, A Healthy Spirituality for Our Time, with “Having the Mind of Christ.”
What are those things in your life that distract you from being present in the moment? What stands in your way of attending to the presence of God in your life? This week, I invite you to consider your worries and distractions and how they may be keeping you from being fully present to what is most important.
This week, Holy Week, we walk through and remember the significant moments of Jesus’ last week on earth. But this year is different. I invite you to consider what it means when we as Christians call ourselves “resurrection people” and talk about living a “resurrection life.” It is Good Friday, but Sunday is coming.
