Eagle Updates

01/21/2022

Dear Families

Thank you for a great week this week! We have been warmly blessed with so much incredible pieces of community and instruction throughout the last several days, and we are constantly hearing stories of revival work that God is doing by His Spirit in His people.


As a step into our weekend, Here is a prayer by St. Fursey of Ireland from the 7th century:


May the guiding hands of God be on my shoulders,
may the presence of the Holy Spirit be on my head,
may the sign of Christ be on my forehead,
may the voice of the Holy Spirit be in my ears,
may the smell of the Holy Spirit be in my nose,
may the sight of the company of heaven be in my eyes,
may the speech of the company of heaven be in my mouth,
may the work of the church of God be in my hands,
may the serving of God and my neighbor be in my feet,
may God make my heart his home,
and may I belong to God, my Father, completely.


May we see and enjoy God's presence around us today.


Grace and peace,


Skyler Sikes

Quick Note of Encouragement

I wanted to share with you the lesson we went through at our Secondary Chapel this week. Both Henri Nouwen and Eugene Peterson have spoken to this pattern, and I love the symbolism it provides for us.


There were often major lessons shared and participated in centered around food when Jesus taught His disciples. If you look at the Institution of the Lord's Supper, the passing of the loaves on the hillside, or the meal shared with HIs disciples after He was resurrected on the beach, there are 4 common verbs associated with the Spiritual Formation we all encounter:


Take - Just as Jesus took a loaf, He also takes us just as we are. With each of our differences, blemishes, unique fragrances and tastes, and quirks and personalities, Jesus takes us in, the good and the bad, and we find ourselves in the hands of a loving Creator.


Bless - As we find ourselves in His hands, we see and hear that we are blessed by Him. He holds us and affirms that "We are His beloved, with whom He is well pleased," and these words are spoken before we earn or diminish any bit of love we think we can manipulate. We have received the full measure of our loving God and are receiving His goodness before any act is taken.


Break - The hard part of formation in Christ is that His word and presence always demands a response. We cannot stay the same once we encounter Him. We either move further or closer to Him. As we move closer to Him, we often find ourselves broken, realizing there are so many layers that have been constructed to keep us from the truth and kindness of the Father, and are now beckoning removal. The sting of this is literally a dying of the self, as we see pieces of us removed only to find a purer and more beautiful human within than we ever expected to encounter. It is the true form of us that was designed by God for us and others to see. It is the image of us God sees, which happens to be an image of Him.


Give - It is this recreation of us that God then gives back to other to receive. We find that we have been formed and designed not just as a benefit for us, but as a gift to the world around us. We become the love and presence of God for others to encounter, and a light of the world that draw people to a loving, Heavenly Father. As Robert Mulholland would say, we are being formed in the image of Christ for the sake of others.


May we allow ourselves to be Taken, Blessed, Broken, and Given by God through the next week. It is a life we just might be seeking to find.
