Household Economics - Ways to Practice - Worship

Jesus said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your
life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear.
For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing... Instead,
strive for God's kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well."


— Luke 12:22-23, 31

When the swirl of living threatens to undo our being.
People: God, make us truly alive.

When making our livelihood threatens to smother our liveliness.

When we forget that you are home.
People: God, make us truly alive.
