The Cup of Our Life

July 8, 2021

Is your cup empty? Full? Overflowing? Lukewarm? Cracked or chipped? Totally lost? This week’s worship theme is “The Cup of Our Life,” inspired by the book by Joyce Rupp. Grab a cup of your favorite morning beverage and join us for online worship at 10 on Sunday (Or any time after that--once the service broadcasts on Sunday, it’s available anytime.)

I am reminded of the old gospel song, “Fill My Cup, Lord,” produced by Bill Gaither. A cup of coffee is good, a cup of kindness is wonderful, a cup of love is beautiful, but a cup filled up by the Spirit is everlasting—even when we forget that’s true. A growing field of research says that prayer, having a spiritual life, and participating in a community of faith can be good for not only our spirits, but our bodies and our minds. I hope this Sunday fills your cup, but don’t wait. Take a moment to refill your cup right now with a breath, a prayer, a call to a friend, a little bit of music, a glance towards the mountains or the lake.  

Peace be with you,
