Reflection: The Rev. Paul Canaday, Rector Christ Church, New Bern, NC What do we focus on? That which gets our attention shapes us. Paul is suggesting here that putting our attention on worldly things will not give us joy or hope. Giving our attention to God provides "life and peace." The challenge then is to keep our eyes and heart on the Spirit and not on all the distractions of the world.

Discipleship is important to the St. James' Eufaula family. One part of our discipleship is learning about our faith and discussing it with others. As we grow together in the knowledge and love of Jesus, the Holy Spirit leads us in new directions both inside and outside the walls of our church. Discipleship and learning are not without questions. We learn and grow through interaction and discussion with others. We want to hear your questions and let you comment on questions posed by others. There are several Forum "threads" including one from our Adult Christian Education class. We also welcome thoughts, ideas, pictures and other resources helpful in the walk of faith.
