"Spirit Living Bones" The Spirit of God surrounds us and calls us to live as reflections of Jesus Christ. When we are weary, God can breathe new life into our lives just as life was breathed into the dead bones of warriors. Yet, we must do our part by being open to growth and change and rest. If we want to know whether we are living in the Spirit of God, we need look no further than our lives and the way we treat one another. Our words and behavior show to the world who we follow in this life. Where in your life do you need God to “breath new life”? What are you doing to bring this new life to fruition?

"Following God’s Will" It is not always easy to follow the “will of God” even when we know what God is asking of us is for our own good. Often, it is difficult to discern what is God’s will and what are our own desires. The siren song of fitting in with the crowd can also blur our vision. How do you know the will of God in your life? When have you followed God and lost family or friends in the process?
Father's Day
Old Testament: 1 Samuel 15:34-16:13
Epistle: 2 Corinthians 5:6-10
Gospel: Mark 4:26-34
"Walking in Faith" We proclaim that we walk by faith and not by sight, but do we really? Christianity is about how we live much more than what we proclaim. People shouldn’t have to wonder if we follow Jesus. It should be apparent in every action and decision. How is your life different because you are a disciple of Jesus? When have people been convinced of your faith because of your actions?
06/24/2018 First Reading: 1 Samuel 17:32-49
Epistle: 2 Corinthians 6:1-13
Gospel: Mark 4:35-41
"In the Boat Together" There are a multitude of stories, both in scripture and in the history of the church universal, of people facing the impossible and having God pull them through. Courage in faith doesn’t mean we are afraid. It means we don’t allow our fear to keep us from following God’s call. When have you walked out in faith? When have you needed God’s assurance before you walked out in faith?
