This past week we celebrated the seventh Sunday after Epiphany - the last Sunday of Epiphany. Our community has focused upon a series entitled Discovering the Presence of God in the Ordinary Rhythms of Life in which we juxtaposed the Old Testament and Gospel texts.
The message for the seventh Sunday after Epiphany focused on the following Scriptures: 2 Kings
2:1-12; Mark 9:2-9
Hungering After God in the Ordinary Rhythms of Life. In this message, we are invited to hunger after God in the ordinary rhythms of our days. Often in our hungering we hunger after what gratifies us, but we are timid in hungering after God or the things of God. We are challenged to be like Elisha who wanted a "double portion of Elijah's spirit." Our hungering for God ought to be a passion in which we desire to be filled to the brim with God. Our hungering after God leads us to be open to the Spirit being poured out in our lives.
