This Sunday, we talked about Kairos time as a way for us to invite in wisdom and combat our self-reliance and pride. As we encounter moments of action or self-contemplation, we have the ability to progress through linear time and the ability to stop and contemplate.
This contemplation starts with observation of what is happening and how we feel. It leads to reflection, seeking God’s voice and instruction. Then we can discuss with the body of believers for clarity. This is called repentance. Then we can create a plan of action through prayerful discernment. We can be held accountable by our community and put the plan into action. As we continue to practice this, we find that every moment is calling us into community with our fellow believers and with the Lord.

Mental & Emotional Health: Part III
Loss & Grieving
Our emotions are important- they help us survive, thrive, and address/avoid potential dangers. Acknowledging them can help us manage and attend to our needs in a positive way. Check out this video from Jordan Cienski, a mental health professional here in San Antonio, on loss and grieving during this time.
