Timberline Old Town

Sunday morning teachings and guest speakers from Timberline Old Town. At Timberline Old Town we gather to remind each other who we are…that we are all created in the image of God and have chosen to accept that, accept God’s love, take care of each other, and participate in God’s kingdom as followers of Jesus Christ.

Every year, we take 5 weeks to go through our Coat Of Arms. It's always about identity. This time, we're looking at it through the lens of access.

 

TEXT:

Matthew 13:10-15

 

TAKEAWAYS:

  • What do you do? [job]
  • What do you do when you do what you do? [vocation, inclination]
  • Why do you do what you do when you're doing what you do? [motivation] 

BENEDICTION:

God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
Amen.

Every year, we take 5 weeks to go through our Coat Of Arms. It's always about identity. This time, we're looking at it through the lens of access.

 

TEXT:

Genesis 11:4

Genesis 28:10-17

John 1:43-51

 

TAKEAWAYS:

  • Where will you be at this time tomorrow?
  • What are the gaps that need to be filled?
  • What are the spaces you wish you could climb out of?
  • If you could put a ladder in those spaces, what do you wish would climb down into them?
  • When we are in spaces we wish we could climb out of, pray for the Kingdom to climb down.

 

BENEDICTION:

I slow myself down for a moment, and try to realise that God is present.

To me. Here and now. He is present in what I do,

in the people that I meet, and the situations I find myself in daily.

How can I make this reality real for myself?

 

I remind myself that I am in the presence of the Lord.

I will take refuge in His loving heart.

He is my strength in times of weakness.

He is my comforter in times of sorrow.

Every year, we take 5 weeks to go through our Coat Of Arms. It's always about identity. This time, we're looking at it through the lens of access.

TEXT:

Luke 1:13-17

TAKEAWAYS:

  • What is your full name? What does it mean?
  • Did anyone ever give you a nickname?
  • What is the name you want God to call you?
  • Draw the Crown. Under the crown, write the name.

BENEDICTION:

To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is Love.

Love is my true identity.

Selflessness is my true self.

Love is my true character.

Love is my name.

Amen.
