|Common Cup 4.29.22 Bishop’s letter—discussion on return to common cup.|
Just a quick reminder about the Church Unbound Outreach every Sunday, rain or shine!
1:30pm to 2:00pm Pre-service fellowship
Location: Central and Chico/ Charleston and Chico (parking). (International District, by the former Caravan Dance Hall and the new public library). Look for signage and the blue tent.
Church Unbound was developed to establish a Christian worship service without walls for those without and with shelter. We believe that to address spiritual needs on the streets of Albuquerque, we meet people where they are by engaging in mutual relationship building and practical hands-on ministry.
Anyone who feels called to minister or participate in worship services with the unsheltered and displaced (for example, musicians, greeters, lay readers, prayer partners, preachers, etc. is welcome! Onsite training available.
Needs: Handwarmers, instant coffee and hot chocolate.
You can purchase the handwarmers at Walmart or any outfitting/sports store. Sportsman’s Warehouse currently has them on sale—(.72 cents per individual packet). They can be bought individually ($1.00) or in a package ($6.99) and we would like to give more of them out during the fall/winter months.
We have 5 brand new thermoses (for a total of 8) in which we bring hot water. We’ve also purchased a camp stove and a water tank, giving us the ability to boil additional water should we need it.
Again, if you have cold weather items (clean/gently used coats, blankets, scarfs, gloves) to share/donate, please bring them with you. Thank you in advance for those led to contribute!
What are spiritual practices?
Spiritual practices are means by which individuals and communities can very literally “practice” their faith. They are tools by which Christians seek to know God, be in the presence of God, yield to the Holy Spirit’s sanctifying power, and surrender to the Divine Will in their lives.
Personal and Communal Examples to Consider:
Meditation Prayer Fasting Study Pilgrimage Retreats
Solitude Stewardship/Tithing/Sacrifice Confession Testimony
Keeping Sabbath Worship Service Diversity Justice Celebration Communal Discernment Hospitality Journaling
Alternative Lord’s Prayer: Eternal Spirit, Earth-maker, Pain bearer, Life-giver, Source of all that is and that shall be. Father and Mother of us all. Loving God, in whom is heaven: The hallowing of your name echo through the universe! The way of your justice be followed by the peoples of the world! Your heavenly will be done by all created beings! Your commonwealth of peace and freedom sustain our hope and come on earth. With the bread we need for today, feed us. In the hurts we absorb from one another, forgive us. From trials too great to endure, spare us. From the grip of all that is evil, free us. For you reign in the glory of the power that is love, now and forever. Amen.
