Thought of the Week

My daughter Harper has her 1st birthday this week. Her birthday falls two days after her dad, so it will be a big week of celebrations. Did you know celebration is a spiritual discipline?

Spiritual Disciplines are practices we can do to grow in our spiritual life in Christ; those that Jesus practiced when he walked the earth. Christian author Richard Foster states that – “Celebration brings joy into life, and joy makes us strong.”

Learning the Discipline of Celebration is crucial to our spiritual health. For without joy, we will not be able to persevere in anything we do.

So take a moment today and contemplate what is worth celebrating to bring you joy – your family, the blessings of a job, the safe country we live in, or even a healthy vibrant church community.
