Dearest Faith Community Near and Far-

First, I hope everyone is doing well. If you haven’t received a Star Word for 2023, please let me know. These our words of intention and additional ways for prayer. Our congregation’s word is Affirmation. Over the next few weeks and this year, I look forward to spending more time in going deeper into this word of intention for our community. Also, this will be our last Sunday to officially receive Star Words. If you haven’t received yours yet, please let me know and I’ll send it to you!

Second, we will have Breakfast Church under the tent on Sunday, January 29 at 9:30, and unless announced, please bring a dish to share every week. We will be passing around some sign up sheets make sure we don’t leave church with sugar highs!  Thank you for being flexible this past week!

Third, framing work continues in the sanctuary. It is looking good! We are working on trying to finalize bids for an electrician…this is harder than we thought! So everything else is on hold until electrical can be installed.  Still lots of moving parts! If you want to check out the Sanctuary, you are welcome to do so.

And last, the Tuesday Work Project for this Tuesday at 11am is the kid’s room by the double glass doors. We need to get that space reorganized and cleaned up so the children in our community have a safe place to be. 

If you have any questions or wonderings or concerns, please let me know. Call, text, or email.

Blessings to you all!

Much love, 

Pastor Devon

Prayer Request
Lectio Divina for Monday,  January  30,  2023All are welcome to join us as we continue to engage in the spiritual practice of Lectio Divina together as a community. 

Our Scripture Lesson is 1 Corinthians 1:18-31

We will gather via zoom for an intentional time of listening, reflecting, responding, and resting in the Word of God. We will meet on Mondays from 8-9 am. 

Here are some details about Lectio Divina. 

Lectio Divina, literally meaning “divine reading,” is an ancient practice of praying the Scriptures. During Lectio Divina, the person listens to the text of the Bible with the “ear of the heart,” as if he or she is in conversation with God, and God is suggesting the topics for discussion.

There are four movements for Lectio Divina: 
1. Lectio: (Listening to the Word of God or Reading God’s Word)
2. Meditatio: (Reflecting on the Word of God)
3. Oratio: (Responding to the Word of God)
4. Contemplatio: (Resting in the Word of God)
