Time Offered Back to God

Time Offered Back to God

It’s Stewardship Season, which means it time to hear about how we can give back to God. Only this year, we’re not talking about money! Harris Powers talks about the impact a couple of new spiritual practices had on the life of his whole family and invites us to consider what ways God might be inviting us to return some of our time in the form of a new spiritual practice.

For the Love of Money

For the Love of Money

How do we get our relationship right with money so that wealth doesn’t become something that consumes us, compromises and corrodes us? It helps to remember - and let our actions reflect - that wealth is a means, not an end. And the end we pursue as Christians is always love. A reflection on Amos 6:1-7, 1 Timothy 6:6-19, and Luke 16:19-31.

#blessed

#blessed

We use the word ‘blessed’ in ways that often means, ‘getting what we want.’ Jesus has a different idea of how we are blessed and where we find blessings. Life, renewal, growth…all these things that blessings bring, are found not by looking out for #1, but by serving. A reflection on Luke 14:7-14.

A reflection on Luke 12:49-56, Francis of Assisi, and the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Pictured: The Cathedral of San Rufino, Assisi.
