Village Weekly Happenings

4/27/17

Village People,

There are people all around us who are lost, hurting and lonely. Sometimes this may be evident, often the lostness or hurt is more covert or beneath the surface. In order to be attuned to what might be hidden, we need to still our own hearts and anxiety, and listen to the moment. This is one way we live by the Spirit. This could be some of what it means to pray constantly (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

If this is true, we really can be the hands and feet and eyes and ears of Christ's love in all situations. Look around you right now. Look around you throughout your day. I believe we have countless opportunities in our everyday lives to share God's love.

"Be anxious in nothing.. but in all situations with prayer and thanksgiving seek after God, and God's incomprehensible peace will be with you..." (paraphrase of Philippians 4:6-7) God, as we go this week, help us to live simple, Christ like lives and serve our neighbors.
