Streams of Living Water 3:
Holiness: Virtuous Life

Romans 12:1-2; Timothy 4:7-8; Mark: 1-12-13

All Saints Day
November 1, 2020

The holiness tradition stresses the virtuous life and focuses “upon the inward re-formation of the heart and the development of ‘holy habits’ . . . . the erosion of moral fiber in contemporary society”. At the core of the holiness tradition is “being ‘response-able,’ able to respond appropriately to the demands of life” (82). Holiness is “sustained attention to the heart” (83). This attention to the heart forms and transforms the personality. It also affirms the sacredness in everything, goodness in the human body. Additionally, holiness is “progress in purity. . . .loving unity with God”

Don't Forget to
Fall Back
November 1st


During this time of isolation amidst the pandemic, some of you are probably feeling lonely and depressed. You might feel sadness, or life just seems to be spinning out of control. You aren’t able to carry out your usual activities and routines. Some of you might be losing jobs or experiencing economic difficulties. You long for companionship and a listening ear. When we are going through difficult times, as Christians, Christ asks us to be present for each other.  

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!”   Ecclesiastes 4:9-12  

We have a wonderful way of staying connected in our church and supporting each other. Stephen Ministers are willing to call you or virtually stay connected during this time of isolation.

What a wonderful way to experience Christian love through a care receiver/caregiver relationship! If you feel you would like to consider having a Stephen Minister, click here to contact a Stephen Minister.
