As you prepare yourself for worship, you are invited to reflect on the following thoughts:
“There are in nature neither rewards nor punishments – there are consequences.”
~ Robert G. Ingersoll
“To believe the Messiah has come means we can no longer shape him to fit our dreams; he shapes us to fit God’s will.”
~ Fred Craddock
How have we as a church tried to shape Jesus to fit our dreams?
Why do we sometimes resist his efforts to shape us?
