A baby deer can stand within minutes of birth and be walking within hours. Within a year male deer are living on their own. Baby robins can fly two weeks after hatching and are forging their own way in life within a month. Of all creation humans take the longest to mature. After decades of parental training and years of schooling we are still not skilled in the art of living. Knowing how to feed ourselves, working to pay the bills, finding a soulmate… this isn’t even half the journey! Understanding the ways of the human heart, perfecting the art of loving, becoming skilled in managing our resources, competent in controlling our appetites, discerning wrong from right, these are the skills in which we need to be well versed if we are to live well and love deeply. Welcome to Proverbs – The Art of Living!
We are continuing on with our sermon series Spiritual from the fall of 2019. The fact that we are both physical and spiritual beings, body and soul, is obvious. What’s not so obvious is what it means to be spiritual. Some today use the label “spiritual” to mean they believe in a higher power but not in organized religion. Others use spiritual to mean that they have a moral compass, guiding values like being kind to other people and caring for the environment. Simply put, there’s a lot of confusion in and out of church as to what it means to be spiritual. Our hope is that this series will not only clear up some of the confusion, but also ignite a passion for spiritual growth. We’re so glad that you’re along for the journey with us, knowing that God will strengthen and stretch us as we dive in together.
