Live Simply

What does it mean to “Live simply?” For many, the simple life that they seek is thought to be found in asceticism where we deprive ourselves of wealth and possessions. But for those who follow Jesus, renunciation and denunciation are  not the secret to the life that is really life. Jesus said “But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” For Jesus, simplifying your life is not necessarily about giving something up but about priorities. This past October we explored what those priorities were and how the simple life is really a life of love and generosity.  We hope you’ll find the following sermon series helpful as you seek after what it means to live simply.

October 2 – Live simply: Follow Jesus
October 9 – Live simply: Care for creation
October 16 – Live simply: Act together
