Consciousness narrows as we age. As we know more we see less. This is the transition from lantern to spotlight consciousness. It does not have to be this way, though. We can learn “Beginner’s Mind” and bring a new, more open awareness to our everyday life.

Abundant Life Church
The impact of love is unquestioned in the lives of those who have received it. Love causes us to stay the course in the difficult times. Love causes us to walk into the room of that special person knowing full well that they are sick. Love according to the Apostle Paul never fails. Sunday, August 1, we will learn the lesson that Jesus wants all of his disciples to know: Love identifies us as HIS. Even in a time where we all need to keep our ¨safe distance¨ there are plenty of ways to show love.
English Sunday service is at 10 a.m., also at abundantlifechapala.com. Bible study is Wednesdays at 3 p.m. in English. Carretera Chapala-Joco 140 in San Antonio Tlayacapan, a block from Super Lake market.
