Sacred Rhythms: Can I Risk It?

Sacred Rhythms: Can I Risk It?

Zao MKE Church

Share:
At the beginning of every spiritual cycle, we ask ourselves, "Can I risk it?" We wonder whether we are truly capable of embarking on a journey into the unknown. Is it safe? Who must I rely on, and how much can I trust myself on the new path?   To give us hope and a model of how to leap into the spiritual unknown with abandon, we'll look to Jesus in his own childhood, putting his trust entirely in God as his heavenly parent, to break free from cultural norms and the expectations of his family. Jesus the child can teach us what it means to move boldly into the unknown, trusting that God is with us always. ____   Sacred Rhythms Series:   The human life cycle brings various stages of development, gifts, challenges and questions - childhood invites us to explore our capacities and vulnerabilities, adolescence has questions of identity and love, middle age challenge us to examine our legacy and impact, and older adulthood offers reflections on acceptance and lessons learned. But what if we experience these cycles in our spirituality, as well - perhaps over and over again as we live many different spiritual lives?   This season, join the Zao community in an exploration of the Sacred Rhythms of spiritual discovery - from asking questions like "Can I trust a new spiritual path?" to "How can I love and be loved by God and others?" and even "Is my spirituality healing me or do I need to find a new path at this time?"   As we reflect on our spiritual rhythms, we can bring awareness to our journey and strengthen our muscles for whatever is to come next.
