In the midst of the many challenges we are facing, from natural disasters to threats of nuclear war, Community of Christ staff pastor, Kris Judd, shares this prayer 🙏 from Thomas Keating:
*Become aware of what is troubling you or occupying your mind.
Welcome Christ four times in the midst of your present life concerns.*
Let go of your desire for power or control over the situation, to be right.
Let go of your desire for affection and esteem from others.
Let go of your desire for survival and security.
Let go of your desire to change the way things are.
*Welcome Christ four more times.
Rest in the healing power of God.*

Great things are happening at the Toronto congregation! Their pastor, John Hamer, recently shared this Facebook post: "I'm very excited by the appeal our congregation's Tuesday and Thursday meditation services have enjoyed. This photo is from Tuesday, August 29. We had 17 attendees of all ages and backgrounds: 5 were baptized members of Community of Christ, 5 others were regular attendees of our meditation services, and 7 were attending a Community of Christ church for the first time in their lives. Many contributed to the offering (non-member contributions constitute 16% of our congregation's local tithing receipts so far in 2017)..." How is your congregation opening the doors to their neighbors? #ExperienceCongregationsInMission
