The Beatitudes are  “blessings”  or wonderful news at the heart of Jesus' preaching.

They respond to the desire for deep joy that God has placed in the human heart.

In our world today, wouldn’t it be nice to know your true happiness is not dependent on putting on a smile, smooth sailing, trying really hard, or keeping the peace at any price? If “blessed” means “happy”, what was Jesus getting at when He said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit,” or “blessed are those who hunger and thirst”? Can we possess true and lasting happiness? 

Join us if you can this Sunday at 10 am and explore how these words of Jesus are Good News for us today.

  •  Wonderful news for the poor in spirit!  The kingdom of heaven is yours!
  • Wonderful news for the mourners!  You're going to be comforted!
  • Wonderful news for the meek!  You're going to inherit the earth!
  • Wonderful news for the people who hunger and thirst for God's justice!  You're going to be satisfied.
  • Wonderful news for the merciful!  You'll receive God's mercy yourselves.
  • Wonderful news for the pure in heart! You will see God.
  • Wonderful news for the peacemakers! You will be called God's children.
  • Wonderful news for the people who are persecuted because of God's way!  The kingdom of heaven belongs to you.
