What is the Jesus Movement?

As part of the Jesus Movement, we at St. Paul’s/San Pablo’s are part of the ongoing community of people who center their lives on Jesus and follow him into loving, liberating and life-giving relationship with God, each other and creation.

Jesus launched this movement when he welcomed the first disciples to follow his loving, liberating, life-giving Way. Today, we participate in his movement with our whole lives: our prayer, worship, teaching, preaching, gathering, healing, action, family, work, play and rest.

We’re serious about moving out to grow loving, liberating, life-giving relationships with God (evangelism); to grow those relationships with each other (reconciliation); and to grow those relationships with all of creation (creation care.)

Together, we follow Jesus as we love God with our whole heart, soul and mind and love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-40).

Try this: Begin your day by asking yourself: How could my words, actions and heart reflect the loving, liberating, life-giving way of Jesus? Ask God to help you, especially when making difficult decisions.
