problems don’t just materialize out of thin air. They are the result of sinful behavior present within those communities. The topic of the Israelites’ moral choices and disobedience to God surfaces numerous times in both Ezra and Nehemiah. Nehemiah 5 serves as a case study where the greed and excess of some members of the community was leading to poverty and slavery among other members. Nehemiah addressed the matter by challenging those in the wrong, and they, instead of bristling at his challenge, recognized the truth in it and took steps to make changes. As a church, we want to continue working in the realm of social issues and community transformation, but may we be ever reminded that the greatest need people have is for a relationship with God and a lifestyle becoming ever-more in line with his best. For social ills are really moral matters, and their solutions must include the spiritual component.

Welcome to Worship

Dr. Milton Redeker

A TIME OF WORSHIP Call to Worship Sanctuary Choir We Need You, Lord Invocation

Practicing Spiritual Disciplines (1 Sam 1:9-11; Isa 37:14-20; Matt 6:5-13, 16-18; Mk 1:35; 1 Tim 4:13; 2 Tim 3:14-17)—The next UBC value that facilitates our Process of Becoming is the practice of spiritual disciplines. These disciplines, most frequently exercised individually but also practiced in groups, include things like fasting, journaling, solitude, etc. The two primary disciplines practiced in the Christian church are prayer and Bible reading. For us, the value of these disciplines is realized as we take ownership of our spiritual growth, and discover and practice those spiritual disciplines that foster an increased knowledge and connectedness to God.
