Welcome to Al!ve Church of Christ Motueka.
'Living and loving life through Jesus'


Hello all.

I have been enjoying speaking to the topic of “How’s your Soul?”  It's such a relevant topic for every person.

So how is your Soul; your mind, your will and your emotions?  If you are like me this is a big question.  I often have to challenge my feelings, why am I feeling or thinking this way, is this healthy, is it right, what is driving the way I feel?  How is your soul?

For me I need to regularly spend time in God’s presence, prayer and worship; this home for my soul, it renews and refreshes my inner self.  Then as I routinely exercise rest, restraint, responsibility and living in healthy relationships/ community I am able to better maintain a healthy soul.

This Sunday we will continue this journey, ‘How’s your Soul?’.  Then next Sunday (19th March) I am hoping for a few people to share what they have taken and applied from this series, some stories of how we are striving to live with healthy souls.  If this is you then please come see me and share.

I am loving church, and hoping to see you all this coming Sunday.

Blessings,
Pastor Shane
