A Legacy of Faith

A Legacy of Faith

Mother’s Day is when we honor all the mother figures in our lives. When we look at the letter of 2 Timothy, we see the Apostle Paul mentioning two of Timothy’s family members: his grandmother Lois and his mother Eunice. I wonder what can we learn from their story?

We will explore the letter of 2 Timothy at the base camp of our church community, near and far. We will explore spiritual practices, keep the gift of the Sabbath, learn sacred stories, sing, pray, reflect, refuel, and revive our sense of reverence!

SCRIPTURE: 2 Timothy 1:3-7(NLT)

Timothy, I thank God for you—the God I serve with a clear conscience, just as my ancestors did. Night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. I long to see you again, for I remember your tears as we parted. And I will be filled with joy when we are together again.

I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you. This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
