Happy 11 a.m. | Anger and Forgiveness

Title: Anger and Forgiveness
Text: Readings from the Proverbs—


Fools show their anger at once, but the prudent ignore an insult. (12:16)
Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but one who has a hasty temper exalts folly. (14:29)
One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and one whose temper is controlled than one who captures a city. (16:32)
Those with good sense are slow to anger, and it is their glory to overlook an offense. (19:11)


As the series continues, we address the assets and liabilities in relationships. Last week, we discovered that true happiness is directly related to the health of our relationships with God, with others and with ourselves. Anger and forgiveness are barriers we all experience in relationships, so we'll address these barriers and invest in better relationships.

Happy | No-Thing Will Make You Happy

Title: No-Thing Will Make You Happy

We begin a new series this week called, "Happy." Our focus will be discernment. We often mistake what will make us happy and only end up disappointed. During the next four weeks, the scriptures will point us to sources of true peace and well being. As we open the series, we'll look past the "things" of happiness to the relationships the bring meaning and satisfaction.

2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2

“Before we can become who we really are, we must become conscious of the fact that that person who we think we are, here and now, is at best an imposter and a stranger.” -- Thomas Merton

All of us have been created in the image of God, and we all fall short of truly reflecting the divine within. The journey to self-awareness leads us deeper into our life of faith because the more we know ourselves, the more we see God's face in the mirror.

The good news is that God has moved into the neighborhood and is calling us to help with construction
