Pastor Lisa, Stewardship and Finance Committee
 
 


From Jennie Underwood for the Todd family:
 
Thank you so much for your prayers and the cards you sent my family.  We are also grateful to those who provided food and served the family after the funeral.  It allowed us time to visit with family we hadn’t seen in a while.  I so appreciate your generosity and love.  Mama (Lib Todd) loved Cokes Chapel and you showed your love very well.

 


Riddle me this…
What flies without wings, and can be measured but never seen?
TIME!
We all have the same amount of hours in a day, a week, a year- but how we choose to use our time varies.  Some of us are constantly on the go while others are bored and looking for new challenges. Some of us complain about not having enough time while others lament they have too much time on their hands.  But one universal truth is that the time we are given is a gift from God and He has given each of us the ability to determine how we spend it.
 
“Time management” is a buzz phrase we hear often.  How we manage our time not only determines how successful we become but it can define our morals, values, and who we are.  Some of our time has to be spent doing the necessary parts of life:  tending to our homes and jobs.  Some of our time is spent taking care of our families and enjoying friends and loved ones.  And hopefully, every now and then we manage to carve out a little time for ourselves, to reflect and recharge.  But what about time devoted to doing God’s work?  There are so many ways we can give time back to God, like volunteering for church programs, helping with community groups and projects, or spending time with those who are sick or lonely.
God has given us this time- how will you choose to use it?        * Carma McCallie, J.D.

*About Our Guest Speaker… John began his involvement with Labyrinths in 1998. By 2001, John was trained and certified as a facilitator by The Rev. Dr. Lauren Artress at Grace Episcopal Cathedral and studied under Robert Ferre, one of the world’s foremost labyrinth builders.
 
For all John’s accomplishments, my greatest delight is his gracious and genuine manner of kindness and openness as he teaches.  John has always held my attention in any setting, especially as he shares his knowledge on labyrinths.

Can Walking Help My Prayer Life?

Walking is something most of us do without thinking… which can get us into trouble sometimes!  We need to pay attention to where we are stepping!

A Prayer labyrinth provides some “givens” that allow us to walk with confidence, without concern of getting lost or stumbling.  We know there is limited space, places to stop and rest, reflect, and that we will return to where we began.  No fear!

Being released from base distractions frees our mind from bodily concerns, allowing our mind to engage spiritually.  Our physical being is set aside, so that our mind may more easily remain with words of scripture, a prayer or word, even an ongoing conversation with God. 

Mindful focus as we walk allows our body to engage in a way that nullifies distractions for me…  my mind is given fully to the presence of God at the moment in whatever way God chooses as I listen, wait, speak or pray.  Sometimes the background worship music is part of the release from daily distractions, as soft music closes out the normal sounds. 

However, it happens with you, walking the path provides a rhythm that opens a “Safe Haven” to my soul.  I can count on the settling and focus that comes as I join body, mind, and spirit in an effort to come close to God, listen, worship, and receive.

When I depart, there is a difference.  Sometimes it is a peace, sometimes it is an assurance of being with the Beloved, sometimes it is a Word, a new perspective, but every time, I depart with the knowledge that I have intentionally made space for God.  I know that God honors the effort we make.

Walking a prayer labyrinth can make a difference in our prayer life, in our spiritual life and in the life of discipleship.  Won’t you take a walk with God?

Pastor Lisa

A Prayer Labyrinth for Cokes is Coming!  Cokes Chapel is beginning a new opportunity for developing a prayer life that we want you to know about! This interest came from the many discussions in our recent Vision process.  By God’s design, the visual interest was companioned with the interest of one of our youth, Jackson Smith.  Jackson will be pursuing the construction of our prayer labyrinth as an Eagle Scout project.

 
 

 

What is a Prayer Labyrinth and What is it Not?  A prayer labyrinth is a path which leads, by a circuitous route, to the center of a design and back out again. A labyrinth’s route has only a single path. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth is designed for ease of navigation, and it is impossible to get lost within one. A labyrinth is not a maze!
 
A prayer labyrinth facilitates prayer, meditation, and opportunities for spiritual growth. Labyrinths have a long history in many cultures spanning at least 3,500 years.  These were used by different cultures for worship, dance and even in Scandinavia as traps for trolls to keep fishermen safe.
 
Our Prayer Labyrinth follows the tradition that arose out of the Middle Ages as Christians sought ways to connect with God. Prayer Labyrinths have been used in Catholic Churches for centuries. They can be set as indoor or outdoor walks.  Our contemporary Christian use has seen a resurgence of labyrinths as we are finding that its history has offered a meaningful way to pray.
 
Cokes Chapel will be offering this prayer labyrinth for both the members and the community as a way to have individual space to pray, to find sacred meaning in the walking in a pattern which releases the mind to meditate and reflect. Our prayer labyrinth will be a unique and meaningful addition to our offerings in order to grow in faith and life.  Look for more to come each week in your announcements!

Disciple Moment:
The infallibility and inerrancy of biblical teaching does not, however, guarantee the infallibility and inerrancy of any interpretation or interpreter of that teaching; nor does the recognition of its qualities as the Word of God in any way prejudge the issue as to what Scripture does, in fact, assert. This can be determined only by careful Bible study.
J. I. Packer

Disciple Live! We have newly trained facilitators eager to start one of the most well known and loved Bible Studies this fall!
