OCTOBER 7 (UN)SPIRITUAL LIFE: UNEARTHING GOD’S PRESENCE IN YOUR EVERYDAY KIM PIERROT AND LUCY GONCALVES

OCTOBER 7 (UN)SPIRITUAL LIFE: UNEARTHING GOD’S PRESENCE IN YOUR EVERYDAY KIM PIERROT

Listening to Lucy

Last Sunday, we had the delight and privilege of listening to Lucy Goncalves as she talked about her life with God, her big dreams, and her gratitude for the challenges in her life. I heard from lots of you this week that both the content of Lucy’s words, and the experience of listening to her was a profound one. Someone shared: “As we were all leaning in, listening to Lucy, taking in every word, it made me wonder—do I listen to God like that? Am I leaning in to God?” Another person remarked: “As we sat there listening, I felt at times impatient, uncomfortable, even a bit scared of not being able to understand her. Then I realized I can come to God like that too.” Personally, I loved the communal experience of listening to Lucy; even when I couldn’t quite catch every word she said, someone else in the room always picked up what I missed. This was yet another analogy of listening to God as a community—we need each other to hear God well! And no one there could forget the parallel Lucy drew between her involuntary spasms when she tries to rush and our “spastic souls” forever hurrying on to the next thing in our lives. Being with Lucy was indeed an experience of moving at God’s speed.

CapChurch’s appreciation for Lucy was demonstrated through the love offering we took, resulting in over $1200 donated towards the expenses Lucy will incur as she publishes her new book Able Soul. Thanks Cap for your generosity, and thank you Lucy for sharing yourself with us last week! (Kim Pierrot)

July 29 | Exodus 7-12 | Andrea Smith

EXODUS | A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS

A burning bush. Ten Plagues. The Parting of the Red Sea. The Book of Exodus is a story about many things but above all, this is a story of two competing kingdoms, and the lengths that God will go towards forming a people for Himself. This July and August, Cap’s Summer Speakers Team will be working through the first 19 chapters of Exodus, seeing it as “A Tale of Two Kingdoms” where God is at work shaping a counter-cultural community which is ruled by a different king, defined by different values, and who will live in the world as a sign to God’s restoring reign.
