Our theme this Sunday is maturity. There are so many ways of thinking about it:
‘When something reaches its full level of development, it has achieved maturity. Easy enough when you’re a perfectly ripe peach. Maturity in humans is not so easy to accomplish or achieve.’
‘To answer the question “What is maturity?”, we first need to look at the behaviors that make people childish and turn those traits upside-down. First and foremost, maturity is the realization that it’s not just about you-you-you.’
‘We’re getting there’: we really are. This maturity is not an end point. This growth is not an arrival; it’s a continuous communion, a life which reaches beyond any one of us, a life which is not measured in outputs or outcomes, but in sheer being. Be-ing, is who God is and what God enables.
