Enlivened

2013 Daily Bread 


The following post is from Kerry Richards, the new Mission Centre Financial Officer for Canada East Mission of Community of Christ, effective August 1, 2013.  We look forward to Kerry's ministry in this new role.

In his comments, Kerry refers to the Daily Bread devotional story of June 10.  You can find and read that article by clicking here.  If you have not already done so, you may wish to subscribe to receive the Daily Bread in your email inbox each day.


 I am enlivened each day by the Daily Bread reflections and spiritual practices which in today’s reading affirms the sacredness of community. I also daily encounter amongst the many happenings of my life the real world in the church community’s Facebook forums where diverse viewpoints from friends and members are continually shared, debated and curiously posed. I have experienced marvelous insight, challenging perspectives and encountered both gracious and provoking attitudes that evoke both positive and negative responses from within me. These forums have become a lesson in learning the realities and layers of faithful disagreement. I find the Daily Bread for me is a safe haven, a foundational daily beginning for personal blessing that enables me to be open to the challenges of sacred yet diverse community.
