We suggest reading the noted scripture(s) before listening to the sermon. We hope these reflections will bless your life and aid you on your spiritual journey.
Reflections on what it means to be blessed. The poem referred to at the beginning of the message is "A Blessing" by James Wright.
While we all have different vocational callings, we are all called to live out our spiritual calling as God's beloved children.
What are we looking for? Where are we looking? Is part of our spiritual journey to uncover our true selves? To come to know ourselves as beloved children of God?
What star are we following? Is it leading us to Christ, the Word and the Light? What gifts do we bring on the journey?
Find the deep down in our heart joy by looking for Christ at work in the world.
Reflections on John the Baptist's call to confession (naming what we need help with) and repentance (turning to God for that help).
