Over the next 35 days we will enter a spiritual journey with Jesus and with one another. It will be a time to read through scripture together and fast from areas of our life that are distractions. Not only remove distractions but replace them with spiritual disciplines. Some of us will fast from food and some will fast from technology. It will be different from everyone, but the focus is to draw close to Jesus and one another.
We do this because we believe all of us at our core are spiritual beings, but we have so many distractions that we are able to connect with Jesus and hear from him and see what he is doing. This morning we read from Colossians 2 and were reminded that when we place our faith in Jesus we are made alive. Made alive to his purpose and through him we have been given a new identity.
