THOUGHT OF THE WEEK 

How often I have found that we grow to maturity not by doing what we like, but by doing what we should. How true it is that not every 'should' is a compulsion, and not every 'like' is a high morality and true freedom. - Karl Rahner

   

THEOLOGY ON TAP 
Alan Bremer (785 Cumberland Road, 30306) will host the next Theology on Tap gathering tonight, February 3, at 7 p.m. Please join us for good food and fellowship, and a program delivered by Baron Mullis on the Apostles' Creed.  Baron will give us insight into the phrase "from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead..." As we consider Lent and our own season of introspection, what does it mean that we will face judgment? What does it mean that Jesus will judge us?  Should we be afraid? RSVP to the church office office@morningsidepc.org. 

THINKING OF JOINING MORNINGSIDE?
The next opportunity to join Morningside Presbyterian Church will be
this Sunday, February 8. That morning, we will have an orientation to the ministries of Morningside followed by an opportunity to join. For more information, contact Baron Mullis (baron.mullis@morningsidepc.org).
 

CHRISTIAN MEDITATION AND BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP 

Meditation is an ancient practice of stilling the "outer thinking mind" and allowing the "inner intuitive mind" to arise. It is a discipline that has been practiced by countless people from cultures and traditions around the world for thousands of years. Members and visitors of Morningside Presbyterian are invited to practice this simple technique in the benign discipline of a group. In addition, we will read and discuss books on contemplative Christianity beginning with "Putting on the Mind of Christ: The Inner Work of Christian Spirituality" by Jim Marion. We will meet the second Sunday of each month, beginning this Sunday, February 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Welcome Center. For more information contact Ken Sharpe, kensharpe@bellsouth.net.
