Change Our Angle
Last Sunday, our Zoom group had a great conversation about the sermon entitled “Change our Angle” and reflected on how that goes for us. I wanted to share some answers to two of the questions that were asked. What would you add to the list?
(1) What stops us from “changing our angle?”
– Judging others
– Not wanting to feel stupid
– Our own ignorance and lack of exposure to new ideas/realities
(2) What helps us “change our angle?”
– Getting to know people individually and hearing their stories
– Simply trying to be kind to others
– Expressive paintings/artwork that open us to other points of view (cf. Dali’s “Swans Reflecting Elephants”)
– A non-judgmental community of people who we can struggle with the issues
– Step out of our comfort zone
– Listen more

Joint ASH WEDNESDAY at MCCC, 2/17 at 6:30pm
We will observe Ash Wednesday next Wednesday (2/17) at 6:30pm at the MCCC Windows. The service will also be streamed on YouTube Live. At this service you can get a “Leaning In, Letting God” devotional ($4 donation appreciated) and other items the worship team has prepared for you. We will administer ashes in a unique way that is “no touch.” It is a different time, but we hope this will be a meaningful experience for all. Remember to tune your radio dial to FM 105.5!
