Simple Life: Time

"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.  What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing," writes American author Annie Dillard.  Time is money.  The most valuable asset we have is our time.  Once spent, you can never get your time back.  These maxims about time show just how much of a value we have put on time.  But for most of us we have filled our time with things that are not important.  We spend our days perusing social media, watching hours of mindless TV shows, waste away the precious moments we have with our family members.  

This Sunday at OKC First Church we will be examining our complex relationship with time.  We will discover how we are spending our time, how we can manage our time more effectively, how we can set our life priorities, and practical steps we can take to live out our life priorities.  I hope to see each of you this Sunday at OKC First Church as we examine "Simple Time."

The Gathering, our new young adult community, will begin meeting for Sunday School this Sunday in Room 231 at 9:30! We have a fun first Sunday planned, and everyone will have a chance to get to know each other. If you are in your 20s or 30s and looking for a place to grow in Christ and build friendships, then we hope this can be a place where you call home.
