Worship at Crossroads
Sundays @ 10am
Worship January 12 - February 16 - Fear-less Hope-full
Sometimes it can feel like we are beyond hope. We listen to the news and it feels like the world is going to hell in a hand basket. We want to make a difference but we don't know how or if it is even worth it. And that's when fear sets in and tries to take charge. Where's the hope?
I like this quote:
"Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form...you can transfigure negativity by turning it toward the light of your soul." - John O'Donohue
There are ways to move beyond negative bias, and that's where the light of hope is found. Jesus said that if we have faith the size of a mustard seed we can move mountains of fear. I think Jesus was saying that hope comes when we faithfully plant small acts of kindness and service in our daily lives.
That's what we are going to talk about this Sunday morning. But more than just a talk, Sunday will be an experience that will help us to fear less and be more hope full. There are things you and I can do to bring hope and healing into our lives and the world. I am excited to share them with you this Sunday morning.
One of the ways Crossroads brings hope into the world is through ESL. Twice a year people from all over the world gather for a semester to learn English. Learning English as a second language empowers our neighbors from far away places to find meaningful work and build friendships.
This Sunday, Terri Kennedy will share the ESL story and then during Linger Longer we will write notes of encouragement to the students. They love letters of encouragement. It also helps them learn English. There's also the opportunity for you to make a difference by serving with the ESL team.
Our current series, Fear-Less Hope-Full, is more than just a Sunday morning series, it is an every day journey. There is an opportunity to be in a small group that will be reading the book Unafraid by Adam Hamilton and learning together how we can fear less and be hope full.
Hope is all around us; we just need to practice it so that we truly fear less and actually become more hope full. I pray that you can be a part of this journey to discovering God's hope at work in you and the world, beginning this Sunday.
