Four months ago we discovered just how attached we are to things like toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and workspaces. All of us are attached to something or maybe a lot of somethings. Attachments are natural things. We become attached to a certain way of living or a certain way of thinking or even certain ideologies. Our attachments can burrow deep inside us and have deep roots. Not all of our attachments will point us toward following Jesus and God’s Kingdom. How do we begin to loosen the hold that our attachments have on us so that we can be open to new growth? Join us this weekend as Pastor Cynthia delivers her farewell message at StoneBridge Community Church.

If you've managed to keep these house plants alive, consider yourself a master horticulturist.

It's Not Me, It's You: The 10 Toughest Houseplants to Keep Alive

What can we learn psychologically from the coronavirus?
1. On a scale of 1-10, how are you at keeping plants alive? Why did you give yourself that rating?
2. When was the last time you moved? Were you surprised about how much stuff you owned?
3. Have you recently gone through your stuff and discovered things you forgot you owned? If not, what are you waiting for?
4. What is something you could throw out right now this minute and not feel sad about it?
5. What is something you are really attached to that you would miss if you got rid of it?
Detaching from our preoccupation with material things or the need to control our lives leads to being free in Christ.
Next Step:
What are you attached to?

After you identify your attachments, ask yourself- does this attachment get in the way of me living my life as a dedicated follower of Jesus? Does this attachment draw me closer to Jesus or farther away?
1. How has the coronavirus personally affected you?
2. What about life before Covid-19 do you miss?
3. What part of living pre-Covid19 are you attached to?
4. Detachment can sound like a negative word. What are some positive ways you have detached from things in the past so that growth can happen in your life?
5. Attachments can keep us distracted from following the example of Jesus. Name some common things that distract people from following Jesus.
6. Now look at your own life, what things do you nurture and tend and care for that are distracting you from following Jesus?
7. What might you need to begin to detach from so that you can claim the invitation that Jesus has extended to follow him?

Silence and Solitude

Resources for intentionally practicing moments of silence and solitude.

It's more than locking yourself in a closet and trying to hide.
