Reflections on Faith and Community

Dear friends,

On this page, you will find weekly reflections on life and faith. My hope is that, in some way, they will prove helpful to you in your daily living. You can also find them on the church's YouTube Channel in the "Weekly Word" playlist. May God bless you on the spiritual journey.

“Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear.” (Matthew 6:25)

All of us have worries. We worry about work. We worry about our families and friends. We worry about the state of our world. We worry. And yet, in his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us to not worry. What’s he talking about? How in the world does he think we could ever stop worrying?

What if you could though? What would happen if you could get rid of all your worries? How would your life change? What might the world look like if all of us were to suddenly stop worrying? Now that would be something. If there was a pill that we could take to magically remove our worries, boy. Who wouldn’t want that pill?

This Sunday we will explore the 2nd of Jesus’ sayings that could change the world as we talk about the nature of worry. Worry can be debilitating, and yet I would submit that it is also one of the signs we exhibit to show that we actually care about something or someone. Worry is part of the fabric of being human. Join us as we explore this powerful saying of Jesus, one that might just help us trust a little more and worry a little less. See you Sunday!
