Prayer List | 5-21-17

PRAYER is our invitation to enter into an intimate and personal relationship with God. You will find many ways that you can come together with us as we seek to explore and grow deeper in that relationship. God welcomes the prayers of those who call out to Him. It would be an honor and great joy for us to include you in this journey toward and with our God.

Living our Faith | 5-19-17

Good morning, friends…
 
I don’t know about you, but it seems like May is one big celebration to attend: birthdays, graduations, Mother’s Day gatherings, and Memorial weekend trips. By the month of May, the weather patterns allow us to get outside and to enjoy long afternoons and evenings with one another.
 
Our spirituality patterns are shaped by our different seasons and this late-Spring, early-Summer phase affords us with the opportunity to connect with old friends and to make new friendships in recreation. The cold months may have kept us inside to engage in study and rest, but the pleasant weather provokes us to read earlier or later in the day in order to make the most of the sunshine and fun.

Living our Faith | 5-12-17

Good morning, friends…
 
It’s been said that the mother is the decision-maker in the household. Marketing gurus always have the mother in mind when launching an ad campaign. Moms have their pulse on the needs around them. Moms know the right words to encourage and the proper way to nurse something back to health.
 
Moms are essential to our faith’s story, as well. A mother was the primary caregiver to Christ for his entry into this world; moms gathered around his tomb and were the “apostles to the apostles” on Easter morning.

Living our Faith | 5-5-2017

Good morning, friends…
 
I recently had the amazing opportunity to attend my first Memphis Grizzlies basketball game. It was Game 3 of the first round of the NBA playoffs against the San Antonio Spurs. (Note: I sure hope that we are still talking about Memphis Grizzlies basketball when the newsletter is published.)
 
Not only did I get to watch a victorious Grizzlies game, but I was able to watch it from a seat in a suite at the Forum. I discovered that the “suite life” is a good life while watching a live sports event. Not only do the seats have an excellent view, but free food and refreshments are included. It’s as if a personal kitchen and living room accompany one in the arena. I don’t know how I can go back to watching basketball “the normal way” after the experience.

God Moment

Mom has been an active member of Advent for 15 years. About 7 years ago, after her first broken hip her ability and motivation to get to church wasn’t the same as it had been.  I worked to encourage her and to keep her positive and ambulating, while praying to God for her healing and faith. She has since given up on healing and she just prays for God to take her home. (She also has been diagnosed with dementia/Alzheimer’s disease.)
