Giving From the Heart: Youth Led Sunday Service With Jennifer Llamas, Youth and Family Ministry Director
“Sufficiency is precise. Enough is a place you can arrive at and dwell in. So often we think of ‘Abundance’ as the point at which we’ll know we have arrived, but abundance continues to be elusive if we think we’ll find it in some excessive amount of something.”- Lynne Twist, The Soul of Money
This Sunday, June 30, at 11:00 AM, we invite you to join us as our young people take the lead in sharing their prosperity wisdom with us. Through spoken word, musical talent, volunteerism, and fellowship, our children, teens, and families are creating an amazing day of connection and spiritual growth for their larger, beloved UCSA CommUNITY.
The themes of scarcity, sufficiency, and abundance — along with our approach to the value of all the resources in our lives — are topics that the children and teens of UCSA have been exploring over the past several weeks. Based on their own unique life experiences, several of our teens will be sharing what they have noticed about true sufficiency, or “enoughness” — a state of being based on awakening to the source of true abundance.
Through our recent Sunday School lessons, we have found that once we turn our love and attention away from what we think we need and towards what we already have – financially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically – we can nourish this sufficient amount, express it through our acts of service and giving, and share our wealth with others. In doing so, a true abundance flows into our lives.
In addition to the music and messages, our church community will also be celebrating our graduating high school seniors during the 11:00 a.m. service and afterwards as we fellowship together with delicious food, fun activities, and musical entertainment in the CommUNITY Center.
We welcome each of you to cultivate your faith faculty and rise above the uncertainty of the world around you. If you are ready to take control of your own resources, if you are ready to focus on a spiritual foundation for true prosperous living, this is a great place to start! Join us as we open ourselves to abundance.
“We can’t always change the circumstances that surround us, but we can choose the conversation we generate about them.” – Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money
