Will Smith has come along way since the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” In the movie “Seven Pounds” he plays the role of Tim Thomas an aerospace engineer whose career comes before everything else.

Aches, sighs, and pains too deep for words. Brokenness. Happiness, laughter, and joy that words cannot express. Beauty. Shttered and whole lives. Life. Health and healing are here! You can be vibrant!
There’re two opposing mindsets that battle within us. I call them Clenched Fists and Open Hands.
When someone invites you to become your best self, it’s frightening. Your best self is who you are created to be. It’s the “Image of God” blooming within you for all to see. But, there’s a problem. When you are invited to be something bigger than yourself, there’s this mixture of awe and wonder, discomfort and fear. When you let your best self shine, it can be scary and awesomely exhilarating!
I said to some friends over dinner, “let’s create something beautiful.” We broke bread and drank from the cup. We talked. We dreamed. We laughed. We are inspired.

The Bible is a collection of books written during different historical periods from different cultural perspectives and contains a variety of genres and languages. A question emerges for all of us who want to get off the curb, crack open this book, and enter into its unfolding story. How do we in the 21st Century read the Bible meaningfully? Lectio Divina or Sacred Reading is a way of reading the Bible that allows us to hear, enter into, and find a home within God’s story.
Dangerous. Revolutionary. Countercultural. Subversive. Praying Matthew 6:11 could ruin your life. “Our bread, that we need, entrust to us day after day.” Just one line could permanetly change you. Kingdom Bread is here. Will you eat? Will you share? You’ve been entrusted!
It all began with a small group of people who shared a dream. Here and now, a new world was being planted. Just as the Rabbi had promised a revolutionary energy surged from them. Will we continur the movement? Will we allow their story to become our story?
