God’s joy cannot be manufactured or packaged; rather it is a spontaneous response to the presence of the spirit with us. God’s joy is wild and free!

Joy is appreciating that all that we have, all that we are, and all that we will be comes from God, the Creator, who is still creating.

  • What is your understanding of God’s joy?
  • In a distressing and despairing world, how will you and your community of faith find and spread God’s joy?

You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11).
