Lost & Found

Lost & Found

It’s easy to get lost. And the consequences can be pretty serious. It can be nerve-wracking and even a bit scary. Not knowing where you are, or whether you are heading in the right direction – whether it’s in your car or in your life, is a scary feeling.

There are many different ways we can end up feeling lost. In this series, we’re going to look at some of the most common (and most challenging) and find out how the Lord can find us even when we are lost — and how he also can help us find our best self.

It’s easy to get lost when you are distracted. And there are so many things claiming our attention. And it’s not just married men and women who are anxious about the affairs of the world.

All these things are “the affairs of the world.” They are real. They have importance. But how much?
We need some perspective. We need a guide.
We need someone who can help us see what is truly important.
In the end there is only one person who can do that. Someone who teaches with authority: Jesus Christ.

So it has been for many even before COVID.  How so? Well, last week talked about how the weight of our burdens may end up leaving us feeling lost. Weighed down and unable…

Lost & Found – Week Two

It’s easy to get lost. In our second week we look at how we can experience feeling lost when the burdens and troubles of the present moment weigh us down, and, carrying them, we cannot even lift up our head. We can no longer see the road ahead. All we can see is where we are at this moment. And what we can see is not good.

Lost & Found – Week One

It’s easy to get lost. It’s easy to get lost in your car but it’s even easier to get lost in your life. And the consequences can be pretty serious. It can be nerve-wracking and even a bit scary. Not knowing where you are, or whether you are heading in the right direction – whether it’s in your car or in your life, is a scary feeling. It’s easy to get lost when you are distracted. And there are so…
