September’s habit was cleanliness – we talked about physical cleanliness in terms of our bodies and our homes being clean and spiritual cleanliness. The discussions that come about from our monthly habit focus are becoming so precious as their awareness and understanding grows. |Create in me a clean heart, o God, and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10|
|Life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece. – Nadia Boulanger| This was a great quote that I used to facilitate a discussion about how attention to details in the small will help equip us for the bigger tasks that God may give to us.
|Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1||Better keep yourself pure and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world. – George Bernard Shaw| This quote was used to discuss how the opinions and feelings we form and build are going to change how we see things, and also why it is that two people can see the same thing very differently.
