Theme: Stay Woke

Life gets more and more difficult to navigate, as we are constantly on the move, with so much to accomplish in so little time. It is easy for us to lose sight of our relationship with God and our community. We may often find ourselves coasting through life seemingly on autopilot, not noticing that our faith has been placed in the backseat. God invites us to wake up to the faith that is all around us. This week we will learn what it means to “Stay Woke” through understanding ways in which we fall asleep and how the spirit invites us to live “woke” in all areas of our lives.
