In northern Minnesota several years ago, some women formed a “joy circle.” They settled into a routine of meeting every couple of weeks to share joys they’ve noticed. Their aim, amid our troubled world and chaotic lives, is to deliberately focus on the positive. The women don’t simply hope to stumble upon good news among the outrage, bitterness and tragedy surrounding us; they actively seek out joy and report it to the group.
Joy is a fruit of the spirit named in Galatians 5:22-23. As Christians, we don’t ignore or dismiss life’s struggles and sorrows, and neither do joy-circle participants. But God promises that life is stronger than death, and Jesus’ resurrection is proof. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we can make a spiritual discipline of seeking and sharing joy — and thanking God for it. – HEIDI MANN
ANCIENT GUIDANCE ON PRAYER
When we pray, we are not to pray for ourselves alone. We do not say, “My Father, who art in heaven” or, “Give me this day my daily bread”; we do not ask for our own trespasses alone to be forgiven; and when we
pray that we may be delivered from evil, we are not praying only for ourselves either. Our prayer is for the general good, for the common good. When we pray, we do not pray for our own single selves; we pray for all God’s people, because they and we are one.
A CHURCHLESS CHRISTIAN
In response to the question “Can I be a Christian without joining the church?”
Someone once said it’s as possible as being:
A student who will not go to school. An author without readers.
A soldier who will not join an army. A tuba player without an orchestra.
A citizen who does not pay taxes or vote. A parent without a family.
A salesman with no customers. A football player without a team.
An explorer with no base camp. A politician who is a hermit.
A seaman on a ship without a crew. A scientist who doesn't share his findings.
A businessman on a deserted island. A bee without a hive.
