Tuesday, March 17: Keep Being the Church with Our Offerings

“Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.”  Romans 12:11-13

As we lean into this new normal of “social distancing,” we are grateful for the ability we have to stay in community with each other through the internet, social media, and phones.  We encourage our congregation to continue to reach our and care for each other, and never cease praying! Today, we lift up prayers for the missions and ministries we support, that they would be strengthened as they seek to bring the Good News to the hungry, the poor, the marginalized and the sorrowful. Would you prayerfully consider how to continue supporting the missions and ministries of JPC with your offering? (Perhaps through mailing, or dropping off offerings to our mailbox.)

Thank you Lord Jesus, that we are called to stewardship! We give because our trust is in You! Praise the Lord!

“Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold and laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.” Acts 4:32-35

A common practice for reflecting on Scripture: 

Lectio Divina (Latin for “Divine Reading”) is a traditional monastic practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God’s word. It does not treat scripture as texts to be studied, but as the living word.
Traditionally, Lectio Divina has four separate steps: read; meditate; pray; contemplate. First a passage of scripture is read, then its meaning is reflected upon. This is followed by prayer and contemplation on the Word of God.
