CORE for LYFE: Five Practices, Passionate Worship
CORE for LYFE series continues so remember to bring your CORE for LYFE Plan booklet with you to worship. We will look at Passionate Worship this week. If you did not get a copy last week, we will have plan booklets ready for you on Sunday.
Robert Schnase writes in his book,
Five Practices for Fruitful Life:
Understanding the meaning of worship requires looking beyond
what people do
to see with eyes of faith
what God does
. God uses worship to crack open closed hearts, reconcile broken relationships, renew hope, restrain harmful arrogance, heal wounded souls, shape personal decisions, interrupt destructive habits, stimulate spiritual growth, and transform lives. God reshapes the human soul through worship. (page 45)
Question to ponder:
How will I prepare my heart and mind so I can worship passionately so that God can do what God wants to do in me?
Also on Sunday:
Assemble UMCOR school kits in the east entry

Sunday Brunch 10:00 AM- Noon

For the Children and Their Parents/Guardians:
On Sunday, the scripture lesson sees Jesus meeting a woman at a well and having a good talk. What's funny is they usually wouldn't talk! They were from two different groups who didn't usually interact. Maybe you have that, too. If you're a 1st Grader, do you talk to 5th Graders? If you're a 2-year-old, do you talk to 92-year-olds? Who are the people you have a good talk with the most? The least? Have you ever spoken with someone who you usually wouldn't? Who is someone in your church that your parent or guardian could introduce you to that you usually don't talk to?
