The courage to stay (Ruth 1)

The Church in the West needs more courage, to be healthy and to grow. So that’s why we’re having this series on courage over May and June. In June, we’ll look at the courage both to stand out and to stand up as Christians. Ken kicked off last week, looking at Joshua and Mark and the courage to go. Today we’ll be looking at the courage to stay from Ruth 1.

Look me in the eye and say that (Luke 22:39-62)

A lot of us struggle with prayer. We pray like we’re picturing the conversation that we want to have with God, instead of just… talking to Him. Listening to Him. In Luke 22:39-46, Jesus prays. He prays like someone who looks God in the eye as He’s doing it. He models how to do it, in the moment that He needed it most.

‘Stick with me, distracted disciples’ (Luke 22:1-6, 20-38)

We live in a world where we ‘need’ likes on social media. Heather went to an internet safety seminar led by one of the teachers at Holm School this week, where she learned that if kids don’t get half a dozen ‘likes’ on a post, it genuinely affects their self esteem. I’m not sure adults are much different. But I’m sure that the church is supposed to be. That we’re a community of people called not to worry about what they think of me, but rather to think about if they are okay.
