Worship series: Looking Inward, Reaching Outward
At the heart of being good stewards is looking inward to what we value, what Christ calls us to value, and using our resources to reach outward to our neighbors and world.
At ELUMC our capital campaign emphasis has allowed us to focus inward on improving our building even as we reach out to the New Hope Regional Ministries. Stu the bear and his bear friends Sue Bear and Winnie the Pooh will lead us in our search inward and outward as we seek to "bear" one another up.
I went inside my heart to see how it was.
Something there makes me hear the whole world weeping.
Love bears all things ...
– I Corinthians 13:7
Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
– Galatians 6:2
Inside and out, let's see how inventive we can be, how encouraging, how helpful, spurring on one another in our worship together.
– Hebrews 10:22ish
