Something I Read Lately

Great post by oneragamuffin! Great message for this Sunday!

I’ve prayed this prayer many times on many different occasions. Never once has God answered my prayer by changing my circumstances, i.e. making my life easier, taking away my difficulties, instantly transporting me to the other side of my trials. What He has done is reminded me ever so subtly that He will be with me as He always has during my dark road.

Peace isn’t always  a feeling of contentment. Sometimes, the butterflies remain but so does the promise that God won’t forsake me. For me, a feeling of peace doesn’t always mean peace, nor does a lack of it indicate its absence. Try and work that one out and see if it makes sense.

After all, it is a peace that is beyond my utmost understanding. I don’t need a god who I can figure out and manage and understand. I need a God who is bigger than…

Encourage One Another


Hi.  Last week my dad and mom (Paul and Connie Allen) and myself were in charge of the service and I gave a Testimony about how the people of the Community of Christ Church have helped me through my life struggles.  I thought I would share that with you.  Thanks for reading!

 Encourage One Another


 Today’s theme is encourage one another and I would like to tell you about how I have been encouraged by the people in this congregation and beyond.  Many of you know that I started attending El Cajon about 3 years ago.  I grew up in the Community of Christ church but in the early 2000s I decided that I needed a break and I spent about 7 years exploring different things.  In that time I learned a lot and had some wonderful experiences. I also made some wonderful friends along the way and I think I have a more profound relationship with God because of that, but in 2007 I realized that I was missing something and that was my home church, the Community of Christ. 

 In 2007 I started attending the Clairemont branch and from the moment I walked into the door, there were people there who greeted me and made me feel welcomed.  After I attended Clairemont for a while, I was invited to attend the women’s retreat where I met Dede and the members of the El Cajon branch.  Dede has been more than supportive of me and I call her my surrogate mother.  (No offense mom 🙂 ) I find the women’s retreats to be wonderful as they are a place where I can really relax and share with other women what I am experiencing in my life.  The women there have been so supportive of me as Montie and I go through our journey of becoming parents some day.  People have also been supportive of Montie as he goes through his employment struggles.  There are women there from all over the mission centers so wherever I go in the mission center there are people there who know our stories and encourage us.

 Speaking of that, I think God knew that we were going to have a long journey ahead of us so he put it in my heart to go back to the Community of Christ so that I would have a spiritual home and people who would encourage me and I cannot thank people enough for all of their words of encouragement, cards, emails and prayers.  They have sustained Montie and me over the years.  You seem to know intuitively when we need something.  Last month I was having a particularly hard time and Helen came to me and said that she felt I needed a prayer.  We sat together after the service and she prayed with me and it helped me a great deal.  I also want to thank Clairemont as they have sustained Montie and I also.  I spoke there on October 30th as I want to give back to them and Sandy and Doug Hardy administered to me during the service.  It was a beautiful moment as I got to give to them and they gave back to me.

 I changed from Clairemont to El Cajon a few years ago because it is closer to my home but also because I also want to give back to you what you have given me over the years.  I am proud to serve as your secretary and I will be glad to help in any way I can.  Let me know if you need a prayer or word of encouragement, as I will be glad to do so.  Thank you!
