Fasting from Apathy (Day 5)
As you journey through Lent, it is important to remember that you are not alone. Not only is God with you, but your community of faith is on this same road. Beginning today, various small groups will meet to discuss our series on “Fasting from. . .” Consider joining us for a lively discussion on these important themes which impact our lives, our relationships and our relationship with and service to God.
Choose one of the following discussion groups:
- Sunday at 10 am | Deeper Dive Adult Sunday school
- Monday at 7 pm | Monday evening men’s group
- Second and fourth Tuesday at 12 noon | Tuesday afternoon women’s group
- Wednesday at 4:30 pm | Join us for dinner and midweek worship.
- Wednesday at 7 pm | Join us for dinner and midweek worship.
In addition to these devotions and discussion groups, regular worship is critical in fasting from apathy. Being isolated in your faith journey gives complacency the upper hand. Consistent worship, scripture reading and prayer are powerful tools in the fight against apathy.
Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another.
Let us pray:
Lord God, you call us to walk with you on a daily basis, but to particularly set apart one day a week for sabbath keeping – worship, time for prayer and learning, time with family, recharging of our spiritual batteries. Help us not to neglect meeting together in your church, as we seek to encourage and be encouraged by others. We pray in the name of the one who surrounded himself by close friends and ministry partners, Jesus Christ our Lord,
