Current W@W Worship Series: Shaped
Have you ever thought about what “shapes” you? What are those things that educate, influence and form you into who you are? Parents more concerned about the issue of “shaping” their children than anything else. We probably should reflect on what forms us and how, but often we’re too busy living our lives and we forget to think how we are formed by life.
We all fear that all of the work we do on ourselves might be derailed by a single mistake or influence. The sad reality is that, while we worry about a big event that mess us up, we probably don’t look closely enough at the little things and how they influence us.
Lately much has been written about technology – our apps and devices – and how much they actually do “form” us. As powerful and fun as they are, research shows that they truly change who we are and have the ability to influence what we become. Not surprisingly, God might have something to say about that!
Each Wednesday in worship we will look at how we are being shaped, where we might be going and how we might also find a way to grow into happier, healthier and more spiritually grounded people. Come see how we might be shaped into the person God wants us to be.
Sept. 20: Walk this Way
The number of pedestrian deaths has dramatically risen. Even more are the pedestrian fails! Jesus showed up when two disciples were walking and talking. Try taking an unplugged walk and see what happens.
Sept. 27: Playing for Keeps
The question about corporations is whether they are trying to sell you their products or are they only satisfied if they get you addicted to them. Are the products we use after not just our money but our soul?
Oct. 4: iChat or We Chat
Jesus spent time in conversation with anyone who he felt he could form and shape. It is amazing how much different conversation is when it is face-to-face.
Oct. 11: Gamey
Games are so much a part of our world that we cannot avoid playing them. Games have the potential to develop our minds and strengthen our problem-solving. When does it go too far? Try playing a board game and see how different that feels?
Oct. 18: Collectively Lonely
Jesus knew what it was like to be lonely. Even though he was very connected, he had compassion for those who are alone because he knew he would die alone. It is amazing how connected and yet lonely we can be. Who would benefit from you choosing to spend time with them?
Nov. 1: Sleepy
We are a sleep-deprived nation. This is only made worse by our technology. The physical response to light and distraction has made us like zombies some days. Try tech-free times and zones.
Nov. 8: Like or Love
Jesus tells us to love, but we are resistant. We would rather like or be liked. How do our apps use our emotional needs to get the best of us? When was the last time you said and demonstrated an act of love to someone who needed it?
Nov. 15: Life Abundantly
Jesus gave his life so that we might have eternal life. Even more, he gave his life so that we might have an abundant life here and now. It is important that we become the very best versions of ourselves, for the sake of Jesus.
