One of things we want to do this church season at Bethel is to encourage one to go deeper in our faith-walk, to take the next step and to take responsibility for the formation and growth of our faith.

Last week we highlighted the verse, “Rejoice in the Lord always: I say it again, rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4). We heard it as a call for us to cultivate or nurture joy. We can take up the practice of the discipline of celebration. Just as Paul calls us to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, we can work out our joy in the Lord.
Here are some suggested exercises for this week (based on suggestions of A. Ahlberg Calhoun, Spiritual Disciplines Handbook).

I’m very excited for next weekend as I plan to be with my mother who was born June 15, 1928, making her 90 years old this year!! It is quite a birthday number to mark as we know from a number of our own members here at Bethel Church.
