On Sunday we celebrated Epiphany and received “star words.” It’s a fun way to approach spirituality and spiritual practices in the new year. There are a few star words left for those of you who missed Sunday. (And stars are in the mail for those who were on Zoom and requested them.)
In the sermon I suggested that we should choose, not a star word exactly, more of a guiding passion of the Living Table community for 2024. How do we want to use our resources this year? What do we want to invest our time in and for what purpose?
For a small community we are involved in many organizations and causes. Could we use our resources better if we were more purposeful and focused in our efforts? Social justice is, of course, an overarching passion for Living Table. Is there a specific aspect we could be more intentional about, recognizing that most issues of social justice are connected?
Our Social Justice Team tried to get some information via a survey, and the response is less helpful than they had hoped. So I am asking you to write your responses in the comments. If you don’t want to put your ideas publicly in the comments, feel free to email me.
My hope is that if we focus our energy and resources more intentionally, amazing things will happen in and through our community. Perhaps there would be clear signs that we are following Jesus’ way of love, and leaving behind some of the more challenging aspects of Christianity.
What’s your dream for our future? What can we begin doing now to help bring that dream into a reality?
It’s the season of Epiphany. May the transforming power of God’s love be revealed in and through all of us.
