Attitude Determines Altitude Pt. 2 
BeAttitudes Pt.1


Dear <<First Name>>,

This Sunday we continue our exploration into attitude and what it looks like to cultivate a unity in Spirit.  We'll look at attitudes of being that were taught by our master teacher Jesus.
 
One of Jesus' most famous teachings is found in what is known as the Sermon on the Mount and it opens with the Eight Beatitudes.  

From Matthew, Chapter 5:
"When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up to the mountain; and as he sat down, his disciples drew near to him.  And he opened his mouth and taught them saying:
 
Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be well satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall have mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons [and daughters] of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
 
Even those who don’t know much Judeo-Christian scripture are most likely aware of the Beatitudes.  But whether they are truly understood is the question.  And whether they are looked upon to have any real application to everyday life is another. 

Your are warmly invited to join us this Sunday as we apply the Beatitudes to our lives.

Blessings!
Rev. Jude
