New Devotion Series: I see you!
We started a new series last week all about being aware of the people around us. It is titled: "I see you"

God creates, knows, loves, and sees all of us in our full humanity. But as people, we can fall into the habit of assuming everyone is the same or everyone is like us. While we share a common humanity, these assumptions can be harmful and prevent us from truly seeing other people and listening to their perspectives. By looking at Biblical stories, this series will help us learn how to listen to, respect, affirm, and act for and with others. In doing so, we can also come to know God even more fully.

This week we take a look at how Jesus opposed culture as he acknowledged the people in every situation. From Children to People from other cultures, and even the true meaning of the Sabbath, Jesus shows how the Kingdom of God includes and responds to all people God encounters. Read along in Numbers 27:1-10.

If you would like to join me for Tuesday morning prayer at 9 am, please follow the link below to the ZOOM.US meeting invite. I hope to see you there.

May God bless us all as we journey together.

Please head over to our website, it is taking on a new form.
Ps. It is still a work in progress and we will be updating the facts and contact details during the week. This is a sneak peek for you to see.

Last week we started a new series titled 'I see you!' The first episode focused on how Jesus listened and responded to the voice of people he met along the journey to Jerusalem. This week we see how Jesus opposed and challenged and even changed cultural practice to ensure people are not kept from God.

Read along in Matthew 19 and Numbers 27:1-10
Because He Lives (Amen)!

Thoughts for Week 2

In this text, God extended the table wider to include those at the margins: women. We have a lot of traditions in our churches, communities, and world. Sometimes we are not sure why the traditions exist in the first place. Some even inadvertently exclude people.
  1. How is God calling us to widen our table to include people and voices that have been excluded?
  2. Who do we need to listen to and how are we being called to act for justice?
