Be Curious: A Worship Series

$50.00

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.” Romans 12:2

Curiosity isn’t just for kids or a hurdle on our faith journey – it’s a value that resonates with ALL of us.

We believe that being curious about the world around us is a truly spiritual practice. 💫

Why?

  • Curiosity about others fuels empathy, builds communities, and ignites the fire of social justice within us.
  • Curiosity about the divine leads us to prayerful reflections, fostering a deeper connection with God.
  • Curiosity about ourselves paves the way for improved mental wellbeing.

We hope you’ll join us on this important and exciting journey of curiosity!

SAMPLE PRAYERS OF RECONCILIATION:

INVITATION TO CONFESSION

One:    So much of human brokenness comes from a lack of curiosity. When we aren’t curious about ourselves, we can’t grow. When we aren’t curious about others, we judge and shame them. When we aren’t curious about the world, we are prone to destroy it. This season, we are leaning into curiosity as God’s gift to us, as a source of strength in an often angry world. How is that gift of curiosity challenging us today? Where is it calling us to reconciliation?

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

All:       Holy One, we admit that we haven’t always kept open minds and open hearts. We have been judgmental rather than curious. We have resisted your call to transformation. Forgive us, renew us and give us strength for the journey ahead. Amen.

WORDS OF ASSURANCE

One:    We are God’s good creation, present in this world but not limited by it. We are made not only for surviving, but for thriving. In God’s overwhelming love, we have the freedom to be curious. In God’s overwhelming grace, we have the opportunity to begin again. Amen.
