Consider earthly concerns and spiritual vision

David Elliott leads an adult seminar outside Tampa, Florida. Yesterday in a post called, "Evolving our most Intimate Relationships", he wrote, "I will be recommending Thomas Moore’s book Writing in the Sand for a lenten series for us to study. He studies the Gospels by reviewing the original Greek at some depth and pulls it together with the statement: "Two streams of life define you: earthly concerns and a spiritual vision. This change leads to a life based on love, a love rooted in radical and profound respect for the other. Eventually you realize that your chief role in life is to heal. That is how Jesus lived and that is what the Gospels teach." This vision can be related specifically to our church and its vision. It should be a fun extension of our journey."
