Most of our problems with prayer arise from our tendency to turn spiritual growing into a set of laws or a gymnastic exercise. I have seen great inner struggle, fatigue, and guilt result when we treat prayer like a discipline.... It is best to have some form of deliberate opening to God each day, but we need not be troubled if the form and expression change.

Too many people come into community to find something, to belong to a dynamic group, to find a life which approaches the ideal. If we come into community without knowing that the reason we come is to discover the mystery of forgiveness, we will soon be disappointed.

At Carrabba's. This wonderful restaurant is located in Chandler, off I10.
Grapes vines above, fake, but wonderful nonetheless, drifted me off to the Mediterranean, where outdoor eating is part of the rich culture.

Yesterday's sermon was inspiring. The pastor reiterated concepts I already practice, and it served as validation for me to keep on doing it. it's about a journey to be Christ like in our daily lives.
1. How do you treat other people in action and words?
2. Are you characterized by the kind of love that creates unity, community, and harmony?
3. Are you wise? Meaning that you are able to say and do the right thing at the right time, in the right way, for the right reason?
4. Do you carry an attitude of gratitude?

Some people are passionate about Frida Kahlo. We were part of a group of said people who attended a card making workshop in honor of Frida, at the Mesa Arts Center.
