Margaret Feinberg Talk – Catalyst 15 Notes

Margaret Feinberg
If familiarity breeds contempt then religious familiarity breeds unholy cynicism

Working in church is similar to working at Disneyland and seeing Donald Duck without his head. The magic is gone.  We are seeing some of the ugly side.
Isaiah 29:13-14 – I am like this sometimes.  Go through the motions.  God is a task to complete.

V15- I will astound these people with wonder

The wonder of joy
400 plus references to joy
Joy is the weapon we use to fight life’s battle

Defiant joy
Rejoice when it makes no sense
Philippians – Paul says rejoice in the Lord always

Remain suspicious that God is up to something good

Bad things aren’t gifts but there are gifts to be found in those things.  Cancer isn’t a gift, but there are gifts to be found even in having cancer.
