Welcome

Christ Presbyterian is a spiritual incubator, caring for members as we listen for the voice of the Spirit calling us to service.  We affirm that as a spiritual community we seek growth, not perfection, and welcome all in love.  We are hopeful that each of you will form a stronger bond with God and the community of Christ on your journey.

Thought for Contemplation

Unexpected Gifts

As life becomes harder and more threatening, it also becomes richer, because the fewer expectations we have, the more the good things of life become unexpected gifts which we accept with gratitude.

Let Us Try Understanding
We cannot require people to love one another, and trying to coerce them to act as if they did does not work satisfactorily, for it seems to breed the very hostilities it sets out to contain. We have resorted to exhortation, persuasion, enticement, encouragement. But these methods have not been very successful, either. So let us try understanding. Perhaps if we can clearly grasp with our intelligent consciousness what kind of being we profoundly are and something of what we may become, we will be able to experience that miraculous shift, that metanoia, that turns the world inside out.
