Thanks For A Change 3: Changing Directions - 11.22.2015

November 22, 2015

Changing Directions: Stories are powerful. They can be full of possibilities and hope. Stories can be destructive, too, like those negative or shameful stories you or others tell about your life. So, what happens when a destructive story encounters a story of gratitude? What future can gratitude write into your life?

Thanks For A Change 2: Changing Commitments - 11.15.2015

November 16, 2015

Changing Commitments: Whether you know the Bible well or not you probably know the story of the ten lepers Jesus heals, and only one came back to thank him. What you might not have noticed is that the other nine are the ones who did what Jesus told them to do. Hmm… was this really a healing? Or was it a test? Or was it just telling us something bigger about life than either of those options? Let’s check out that third option and see what happens when the need to give thanks to the source of your life takes over.

Thanks for a Change 1: Changing Possibilities - 11.08.2015

November 8, 2015
Changing Possibilities: Miss Manners will remind you that etiquette dictates a Thank You note to your host because gratitude is essential to social lubrication. What if giving thanks is exactly what you need to do – not for other people – but for yourself. What if gratitude was a perspective, not an act? What if it changed you, and came from a changed you? The Bible has a lot to say about giving thanks but it isn’t because God is trying to make you more polite. Let’s talk about it.

Shh… 4: Mind - 11.01.2015

November 2, 2015

“Shh…” Quieting Yourself to Give Life a Hearing – Mind: So what do you think? Is your mind a source of noise keeping you from hearing life? Or is it one of the sources you need to be still enough to truly listen to? Or is it both? Maybe ‘loving God with all your heart, soul and mind’ says it has a little of both to it. Before you think too much about that, just stop and give thanks that you have a mind and join Stephanie Vos, pastor, yogi, all around good person, as she takes us on a mindful adventure.
