Notices for Week of January 21, 2018

Come follow me

Notices: Proper 3, 21 January 2018

In the readings for this Sunday we will hear about the call to follow Jesus, and to repent, to change, to go deeper and connect with the larger life of God, of Love. On this inner journey, even our wounded and unhealed shadow selves are discovered and brought under the loving gaze of the Divine Lover. Under this Loving Gaze is where the real healing and changing wonderfully happens in our souls. Come and see!
