              Title:     The Scoop on Happy

              Text:     John 15:1-11


 An ancient prayer cries out:  "O Holy One, as the hand is made for holding and the eye for seeing, You have fashioned me for joy.”


But do you believe it?  Is God — really — pro-joy?  Or does He just tolerate it?


He has fashioned us for joy!   What He’s against are the things that — actually — will wreck it. But true joy?  He has more of that than we can possibly imagine!   How do we become grounded in His joy — and flourish in it — and share it with a joyless world?  Join us Sunday as we go deeper into His joy: and as we remember on this Memorial Day weekend those who have given their lives for a grateful nation.
