Message: “And Forgive Us Our Trespasses”

By | Notes and quotes | 3 Comments

What a gift to have the soulful Deirdre JVR be with us last Sunday to take us deeper into what it means to be forgiven by God. A wonderful phrase that stood out to me from her sharing was: “Forgiveness is the Oxygen to thriving relationships.” What a beautiful reminder that we need that oxygen in our relationship to God and with others.

For any of you who would love to hear Deirdre’s words again, or for those of you who couldn’t make it and would like to listen from home, here is the download link to her message:

Also please be sure to check out this beautiful piece of written prose unpacking the story of “The Other Son” for those of you who know what it means to be the older brother in this story, and spend some time with our resources this week to keep diving deeper.

May you continue to move beyond simply ASKING for forgiveness, into how to RECEIVE forgiveness.

Peace to you,

Jenna and The Practice Team

 

Message: “Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread”

I don’t know about you, but this past Sunday was such a profound and powerful time for me to be among the tribe at the Practice. It was a true privilege to welcome Jonathan Martin into our community as we continued to move through the Lord’s Prayer into “Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread.” Jonathan’s message and his guided response were such a gift to our community. If you missed the gathering we would hate for you to miss out! To catch up, or to simply revisit all we learnt last Sunday, here are the words of Jonathan’s beautiful prayer, and the audio recording…

I do not ask
for some future bread.
I do not ask
for some lofty thing.

I ask for nothing more.
I ask for nothing less
than primal provision.

For this, and this – only this.

I do not ask for then.
I do not ask for there.
I do not ask for that.
Only this meal – this moment.

For this day, only.
For this, and this – only this.

And as if this isn’t wonderful enough – Jonathan was so kind as to write this blog for us in response to his time with us last Sunday. We encourage you to keep pushing into the beautiful invitation of ‘this’ as you go about your week.

Blessings,

Aaron and The Practice Team.
