July 29th, 2018 ~ 10th Sunday after Pentecost
Routines can be very helpful in day-to-day life, but they can cause us to miss what is right in front of us. We, often, follow the same sequence of actions come Sunday morning. We park in the same spot, enter the same door, sit in the same place, we look at the same stain glass windows. Because of our Sunday morning routines, we can end up going through the motions of “church” without being fully present. Being on Sunday morning autopilot, we can miss some truly important things, reminders of who Jesus is and what he has done. Routines can prevent us from listening to the Holy Spirit to guide our actions. They can also prevent us from checking in with God or prevent us from helping someone in need.
