Thanks to God

Our desire is that everyone - whether they enter our doors or not - would discover the sacredness of their own story, celebrate their spirituality, and fully enjoy an everyday life with God.

God is everywhere, in everything, and with you every day. Crossroads is a community that intentionally celebrates and extends God’s unlimited welcome and unconditional love to people both inside and outside the walls of a church building. We are equally passionate about and committed to two forms that help us pursue our vision: one is the ministries centered here at Crossroads Drive, and the other we call “Imagine”. Through Imagine we meet in restaurants, bars, coffee shops, homes, yoga studios and in nature with people who have no interest in coming to a church building. We call this a “Both/And” church and through these two forms we are empowered to offer God’s radical grace and love in ways that enable people both inside and outside the walls to change the world one person, one family, and one community at a time.

Operating as usual

[05/27/21]   Midday Pause: An Advocate, the Holy Spirit has been sent to teach and remind me of God’s ever-living messages to me. I am not alone.

[05/27/21]   Way to go Crossroads Jobs! 👏

John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom God will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

Morning Prayer: God, I like imagining what the Holy Spirit might look like if She became visible to my eyes. Would She be a form that shimmers in the light? Would She reflect a rainbow of colors? Would She appear as a wise elder whose cloak, once opened reveals Jewels and pearls of wisdom? Is She all these and more? Whoever She is, I’m so grateful that Jesus told us She was coming to be near us, to teach us and to remind us to follow in the Way of Jesus. When I am confused, remind me to still myself - to remember that I’m not doing this life on my own. The Holy Spirit is close, and You, God, are as near to me as my own breath. May it be so.

Morning Focus: I will pay attention to the movement and voice of the Holy Spirit in my life who teaches and reminds me to follow in the Way of Jesus. I am not alone.

[05/26/21]   Midday Pause: Come briefly to stillness and inhale, “God brings new life…”. Exhale, “to all of the earth.” Inhale, “Spirit, bring new life…”. Exhale, “to all of me.”

Psalm 104:24-34 Our Lord, by your wisdom
you made so many things;
the whole earth is covered
with your living creatures.
But what about the ocean
so big and wide?
It is alive with creatures,
large and small.
And there are the ships,
as well as Leviathan
the monster you created
to splash in the sea.
All of these depend on you
to provide them with food,
and you feed each one
with your own hand,
until they are full.
But when you turn away,
they are terrified;
when you end their life,
they die and rot.
You created all of them
by your Spirit,
and you give new life
to the earth.
Our Lord, we pray
that your glory
will last forever
and that you will be pleased
with what you have done.
You look at the earth,
and it trembles.
You touch the mountains,
and smoke goes up. As long as I live,
I will sing and praise you,
the Lord God.
I hope my thoughts
will please you,
because you are the one
who makes me glad.

Morning Prayer: God, throughout this day, I pray that Your Spirit will remind me of Your incredible power, again and again. May I bring You glory through my own humble role in this magnificent world. I lift the words of praise from this Psalm as my own words of awe and gratitude to You. Keep me deeply rooted in my place in Your world today. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Set your heart and thoughts on God by offering specific words of gratitude all day long.

Romans 8:22-27 We know that all creation is still groaning and is in pain, like a woman about to give birth. The Spirit makes us sure about what we will be in the future. But now we groan silently, while we wait for God to show that we are his children. This means that our bodies will also be set free. And this hope is what saves us. But if we already have what we hope for, there is no need to keep on hoping. However, we hope for something we have not yet seen, and we patiently wait for it.

In certain ways we are weak, but the Spirit is here to help us. For example, when we don’t know what to pray for, the Spirit prays for us in ways that cannot be put into words. All of our thoughts are known to God. He can understand what is in the mind of the Spirit, as the Spirit prays for God’s people.

Morning Prayer: God, on one hand I find myself in a season of hope. I am beginning to emerge from isolation, welcoming the opportunities when I can once again gather with friends or gather to worship together rather than sitting in front of a screen. On the other hand, I can easily find myself in a season of despair. There is ongoing conflict all around the world; there continue to be instances of racial injustice in our own country and beyond. Gun violence is out of control. Politics continues to be divisive. We have become the maskers and the anti-maskers. Instead of respecting the actions of others we call them out and ridicule them. Sometimes it can be overwhelming and I don’t know what to pray for. So I am comforted and grateful to be reminded that the Holy Spirit has this covered. When I am without words, the Holy Spirit provides them. God, You know what is on my heart and on my mind. When I can’t think of what to say, let me just be silent in Your presence. May it be so.

Morning Focus: I will let the Holy Spirit work in me and through me today.

John 15:26-27 and John 16:4-15 I will send you the Spirit who comes from God and shows what is true. The Spirit will help you and will tell you about me. Then you will also tell others about me, because you have been with me from the beginning.

I am saying this to you now, so that when the time comes, you will remember what I have said. I was with you at the first, and so I didn’t tell you these things. But now I am going back to the God who sent me, and none of you asks me where I am going. You are very sad from hearing all of this. But I tell you that I am going to do what is best for you. That is why I am going away. The Holy Spirit cannot come to help you until I leave. But after I am gone, I will send the Spirit to you.
The Spirit will come and show the people of this world the truth about sin and God’s justice and the judgment. The Spirit will show them that they are wrong about sin, because they didn’t have faith in me. They are wrong about God’s justice, because I am going to the Father, and you won’t see me again. And they are wrong about the judgment, because God has already judged the ruler of this world.
I have much more to say to you, but right now it would be more than you could understand. The Spirit shows what is true and will come and guide you into the full truth. The Spirit doesn’t speak on his own. He will tell you only what he has heard from me, and he will let you know what is going to happen. The Spirit will bring glory to me by taking my message and telling it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine. That is why I have said that the Spirit takes my message and tells it to you.

Morning Prayer: God, I am grateful for the gift of Your Holy Spirit to comfort, strengthen and guide me. Everyday I face challenging situations that require wise discernment. It brings me peace to know that I do not have to rely only on my own human wisdom to face all the challenges and decisions of life. I trust that the guidance of the Spirit is truly from You. You have told us to ask for wisdom and I do ask for that. I feel confident that the Holy Spirit will provide strength to face whatever this day may bring. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Trust the Holy Spirit to guide and guard you today.

What a great day! Grateful to be back inside for worship this morning. Thanks to all who helped make it happen!

[05/23/21]   Midday Pause: Pentecost is considered the birthday of the Church and we celebrate our unity through God’s Spirit and unconditional love! Reflect on some joyous memories and gifts the Church has given you.

05/23/2021

Acts 2:1-21 When the Feast of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Without warning there was a sound like a strong wind, gale force—no one could tell where it came from. It filled the whole building. Then, like a wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks, and they started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them.

There were many Jews staying in Jerusalem just then, devout pilgrims from all over the world. When they heard the sound, they came on the run. Then when they heard, one after another, their own mother tongues being spoken, they were blown away. They couldn’t for the life of them figure out what was going on, and kept saying, “Aren’t these all Galileans? How come we’re hearing them talk in our various mother tongues?

Parthians, Medes, and Elamites;
Visitors from Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia,
Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene;
Immigrants from Rome, both Jews and proselytes;
Even Cretans and Arabs!

“They’re speaking our languages, describing God’s mighty works!” Their heads were spinning; they couldn’t make head or tail of any of it. They talked back and forth, confused: “What’s going on here?” Others joked, “They’re drunk on cheap wine.”

Peter Speaks Up
That’s when Peter stood up and, backed by the other eleven, spoke out with bold urgency: “Fellow Jews, all of you who are visiting Jerusalem, listen carefully and get this story straight. These people aren’t drunk as some of you suspect. They haven’t had time to get drunk—it’s only nine o’clock in the morning. This is what the prophet Joel announced would happen:

“In the Last Days,” God says,
“I will pour out my Spirit
on every kind of people:
Your sons will prophesy,
also your daughters;
Your young men will see visions,
your old men dream dreams.
When the time comes,
I’ll pour out my Spirit
On those who serve me, men and women both,
and they’ll prophesy.
I’ll set wonders in the sky above
and signs on the earth below,
Blood and fire and billowing smoke,
the sun turning black and the moon blood-red,
Before the Day of the Lord arrives,
the Day tremendous and marvelous;
And whoever calls out for help
to me, God, will be saved.”

Morning Prayer: Thank you, God, for the gift of Your Spirit, on that first Pentecost Sunday and every day afterwards. The Spirit, whose name is translated in the scriptures as Advocate, Encourager, Comforter, Counselor, Friend. The gift of peace Jesus promised his disciples is given still to us today, connecting Your children throughout history and throughout the world. May Your Spirit be close to me today, guiding my steps and directing my words with love. May it be so.
