St. Nicholas Episcopal Church of Kapolei Hawaii has held "Covenant Group" meetings for about 10 years. These groups meet weekly for fellowship, prayer and reflection on the readings and the sermon from the previous week. This blog is an attempt to offer the prayer and reflection as an on-going basis. The challenges of schedules and more prevent many members from participating in our groups, perhaps this will allow for additional participation. I will post readings and questions - please answer the questions and contribute as you're comfortable in the comment sections. Blessings

Look - Prophetic calling

Some family traditions can stem back generations.  The traditions are greatly revered and held up each year.  However, sometimes you might feel that the need to freshen up some of your traditions to get them off of “auto-pilot”. 

1.         Does your family have sayings or traditions that go back a generation or two (or even more)?  Share one.  Has your family ever altered the tradition to ‘freshen’ it up? 
2.         What do you do in your daily life that you feel is on auto-pilot?

3.         How hard would it be for you to stop observing one of your family traditions or take a different route to work, drink your morning cup of coffee from a different cup or serve dinner at a different time of day (or fill in your own auto-pilot activity)?  Why?

    1. I can't think of any.
    2. Driving to work.
    3. Wouldn't be to hard to change it once, but to completely change would take effort. I find comfort in routines.
