Live Forward is a ministry at Resurrection for anyone who feels stuck in a hurt or a habit that they want to move past. Live Forward incorporates the reoccurring message of God’s generous grace as well as the best content from science and psychological research.

You can listen to last week's Live Forward message here

I enjoyed spending last Thursday with you talking about Personal Easter and how we can 'lean into' our joyful experiences. Here is the clip of Brene Brown I used last week.

This Thursday is going to be great. I need to announce two big things that are happening on October 10th.

A new sermon series 'Daring Greatly' will begin Thursday.  I believe these next three weeks will touch on topics that your friends and family will want to hear.   The focus will be on the work of Brene Brown and how Faith adds that nudge to Live Forward.   Brene Brown has skyrocketed from being unknown to featured on Oprah and TED Talks.  You can see the Ted Talk that made her famous at  Brene Brown researched Shame for 6 years and then another 6 on being Wholehearted in the face of inner struggles.  This is a great message for me and I think it would be a great message for you.  It is as important a message for men as it is women.   I will send you a special invite email that you can send along to invite others.

Resurrection Care Night begins.  From this Thursday on, we will share a meal from 5:30-6:15 with people attending other Congregational Care Classes.  The meal each week will be free and catered.

A little at 6:00 each week we will have an added time for announcements led by Karen Lampe, the Executive Pastor of Congregational Care, followed by a song.  At 6:15pm, people will begin throwing away their trash so that Live Forward can begin worship at 6;30pm.

I am very excited about  Resurrection Care Night.  I think you will be too.

Dinner 5:30-6:30pm (Student Center in East Building)
Worship 6:30-7:20 pm (Student Center in East Building)
Small Groups 7:30-8:30pm (In Rooms Announced in Bulletins)
Common Grounds Cafe (8:30-9:00pm (Room 221)

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Steven Blair
