The Church: Looking Upward…

Don’t be discouraged if you don’t hear God speaking to you…& don’t think He isn’t.   He IS speaking to you.    Spend time listening for Him.

Most of us have spent a lifetime tuning God out.
It will take some time to dial ourselves back into His frequency. Persist & Listen.

We are in the midst of redefining what it means to BE the church. We are asking the question, “How do we unite to grow together to better serve each other & beyond?” We have been learning about 6 functions of the church that help us to live out our mission and purpose in our community. One of those functions is the encouragement and practice of the Spiritual Disciplines. We’ve been “Looking Inward” at our own hearts…

“For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.  For every tree is known by its own fruit.  For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush.  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil.  For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”
