Practices of the Heart 2016
Following up on the Holy Spirit’s challenge on December 27, we are invited to forego (or enhance) our New Year resolutions by taking up the practices of Colossians 3. Each week, participants will focus on one practice, day by day, at home, work, school, play, everywhere, mindfully and intentionally. For example, the first week’s language invites me to wear compassion each time I put on my coat…..They are posted in their entirety below, and reminders will appear weekly in our worship bulletin, at togetheronthejourney.blogspot.com, and on our “Together on the Journey” Facebook page. We look forward to conversations in person or online about these practices of the heart. All are welcome to share this journey into the new year.

As a Christian community we believe in the power of prayer. If you would like to be included in our prayers please click here.
We affirm that through God’s redeeming love for all, we are one in Christ. We respect the inherent and valuable contributions each member makes to the Body of Christ. We celebrate our diversity and recognize the sacred worth and dignity of all persons of any age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnic origin, economic reality, family status, sexual orientation, diverse ability or social status. We believe that through Christ we are being reconciled to God and to one another. As we journey towards reconciliation, we proclaim this welcome to all God’s people, especially to those who have known the pain of exclusion and discrimination within the church, affirming that no one is excluded or condemned. We invite all persons to journey with us as we discover the call of God on our lives through the ministries of Fairport United Methodist Church. To that end, Fairport United Methodist Church commits to the reconciliation of all persons as children of God and declares itself to be a Reconciling Congregation.
