Coming Alive

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. -Rev. Howard Thurman

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. –Oscar Wilde

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. – John 10:10

It’s easy to listen to those dominant, influential voices that tell us to produce, achieve, fall in line, and “succeed”; however, the path that is clearly paved before us by the powers that be is often not the path that brings the most life. We are challenged to live fully, and often, truly coming alive means taking the road less traveled. It’s easy to just exist, checking the boxes as we go along, but we are challenged to live abundantly.

Join us this Saturday evening as Sarah Bollinger explores this challenge to come alive. Sarah is finishing her doctorate in Social Work at Washington University, preparing an album of songs, and working with the Methodist Church’s Mozambique Initiative. Sarah will share some of her experiences and invite us to reflect on ways that we have each come alive while perhaps stepping out of line in order to do so.

Potluck begins at 6:00 p.m.
