Warm Reminder: This Sunday as we change the clocks back, Our Spirit of Life Eucharist time moves to 4pm on Sundays through the winter months until we change the clocks again in March. We hope you are able to join us this Sunday as we Celebrate All Saints/All Souls.  We invite you to bring pictures of loved ones who have touched your life and shaped your heart and enter their names into our Book of Remembrance.  All are welcome!

 Dear Holy Ones of The Spirit of Life, 

St Paul began his letters "To the holy ones of the church of Ephesus/Philippi/Colossae  And so we begin: to all the holy ones of the Church of The Spirit of Life!  

Dear Friends,

As we begin this letter it is August 6, the Feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus.  Jesus is transfigured in the company of Moses and Elijah and in the presence of his apostles Peter, James and John. 

Dear Friends,

Do you suffer from Plank-in-eye disease?  In yesterday' s Gospel, Jesus chastises those who try to take the speck out of their neighbor's eye when they have a plank in their own eye.  He challenges them to first take the plank out of their own eye, so that they see clearly before they attempt to remove the speck from their neighbor's eye.  It prompts us to reflect with you on plank-in-eye disease.  This disease allows those who have it to think they see everything, when in reality, they see nothing.

We would like to reflect with you about three applications that employ our seeing more clearly.

Dear Friends,   

Conspire.  The literal meaning of the word con-spire is to breathe together with.  For our Holy Week journey, we invite you to breathe together with Jesus.                     

Dear Friends,

These past few Sundays, the second reading at Eucharist has been from Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 15 where Paul talks about Death and Resurrection.  He ends with the note that Jesus was the first-born of the dead to Resurrection--all of us are meant to follow that path to Resurrection.
