We all dream of being happy. If we could just lose the extra weight, get the job, buy the house, we could truly be happy. But over time, it begins to seem as though lasting happiness is unattainable. Despite our best efforts, true happiness will never be a reality for us. So how do we find lasting happiness and contentment in our lives? Maybe the answer isn't in our own lives at all.
Matt Miofsky connects the existential question, "Am I happy?" with basic theology and unexpected biblical texts. Starting with the book of Ecclesiastes, considering if any 'thing" can make us happy, he explores the value of relationships, a forgiving lifestyle, living in the present, feeling gratitude, and learning to release control. Using scripture and these themes as a guide, we will explore this topic in worship as part of a summer reading series.
We will be beginning a sermon series based on the book Defying Gravity by Tom Berlin, Senior pastor of Floris United Methodist Church. Our possessions can create unbearable weight and affect our ability to serve and thrive. How do we defy gravity and find freedom? Join us on October 23 as we begin this four week study. #FUMCBreakFree
