Christ the King : What does that look like?

He’s not the “King” they were expecting, and the image that we have of Jesus even today is likely very different from his actual physical appearance. Our depictions of Jesus say a lot more about us than they do about him, and that’s worth exploring as we come to the...

Adopting a Be-Attitude of Gratitude

Jesus didn’t tell people to be grateful, not even during harvest season. He simply exuded gratitude in his daily living, teaching us to be thankful for the many simple blessings in our lives through connecting with others, with the Earth, and with our own breath and spirit. http://media.blubrry.com/sixwaysfromsunday/p/content.blubrry.com/sixwaysfromsunday/SWFS_Ep_025_Oct1_2018.mp3Podcast: Play in...
