The Healing Message Of Jesus, Part 2

We all want to be happy. But do we know HOW to be happy? Do we stop and consider what it is that brings true happiness and fulfillment?

This week we continue to look at the lessons on happiness from the Sermon on the Mount and what they can show us about how to seek and find deep and lasting happiness.  .

The Healing Message Of Jesus, Part 1

We are living in a time where there is great strife and division. A good deal of that strife and division comes from people who say they believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Perhaps it is time to take a good look at the life and teachings of Jesus and see what He really says. Well, that’s what we are going to do.

Christmas Is Over. Now What Do I Do?

We paid attention to the story of Jesus’s birth into the world and the meaning it has for us. And now that that focus has passed what’s next? Well, there are a lot of things that Jesus said and did that are really worth paying close attention to (not surprisingly). We will begin doing that this Sunday.

Do You Want To Know The Future?

Sometimes we think it would be good to know the future or to be certain of what was going to happen next, especially in uncertain times like these. But imagine what that would really be like–to know how our life is going to unfold beforehand. Would that really make us more peaceful and more happy? We will talk about this on Sunday.

Finding Inner Strength

What do we do when we are overwhelmed? What can we do prevent states of overwhelm from taking hold of us? There are two stories we are going to look at that show us one thing we can do before hand as prevention and one thing we can do if we find are already in a difficult state. One is illustrated by king Solomon and the other is illustrated by king David.

What Made Them Wise Men?

Wise men came from the East to worship the Christ Child following the promised star. When they finally found the Christ Child they fell down and worshiped Him; offering gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 

These visitors are called “wise men” in the scriptural story. What was it about them that made them wise? Are there things we can glean from their story that can help us be more wise people? Well, of course. We will talk about that this Sunday, the fourth Sunday of Advent.

Why Were Shepherds Chosen To Receive The News Of Christ’s Birth?

Of all the kinds of people in the world why was it that shepherds were chosen as the ones to hear the message of Jesus’s birth directly from the angels?

There are qualities pictured by what a shepherd does that represent or symbolize the kinds of things that, if we can cultivate them in ourselves, make us capable of receiving and sharing “good tidings of great joy”. If we can be like a shepherd to others we may find that things shift in our perspective and sense of purpose and happiness in life.

This Sunday is the third Sunday of Advent.

Do You Have Room?

When the expecting Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem to be taxed and counted as part of the census demanded by Emperor Caesar Augustus they found no place where they could stay.  There was no room for them in the inn. They were only able to find a place in the animal stable where Jesus would be born, with a manger serving as a bed.

This Second Sunday of Advent we will reflect on the place of the Lord’s birth, asking why Jesus was born where He was and why there was no room for Him in more traditional lodging. What lesson does this hold for us? We will reflect on what we make room for in our own lives and whether we have space for the messages of love, truth and kindness to one another that the Lord wishes to implant in our heart and mind. We will also see if we might be able to create a bit more room within our selves where these good inclinations and impulses can take root, grow and be born.
