Worship: Faith is Not a Track Meet; it’s a Marathon

Author Nadine Sapirman, Written Apr 21, 2015


Sunday Worship, April 26, 10am
Worship Leader:  Chris Buja, Director of Lifespan Faith Development
Music:  Will Magalio

Do you feel “called” to run a marathon? To run…period? No? Chris Buja, Director of Lifespan Faith Development, has felt that call–and continues to work toward answering the call–to qualify for and run the Boston Marathon. And while you may not feel the same call to run, the journey of faith is something all are called to–runner and non-runner alike. Mr. B’s sabbatical provided a unique opportunity for him to reflect on both his journey of running and his journey of faith- discovering how the two can be intertwined. This worship service will explore how some lessons and wisdom from running can apply to our faith journeys- with encouragement to take the next step in your “spiritual marathon” training!
