Bishop’s Message

All

Real spirituality is being a real human being. Jesus taught open-arms living not spiritual contortions. Jesus and Spirit guide us to true volition-an invitation to choose God. Really. The positive consequence of choosing God is fear gets overcome with trust, and crippling passivity is replaced with active partnership with God and others. God put the potential for this spirituality in each of us. This life is open to all people. We don’t rely on magic from the sky or incantations once a week. God’s desire is for all of us to have this. All of us. Numbers 11:29
