Are we formed in Suffering?

If the song is true, " He has the whole world in his hands', then why does the world experience suffering and through these experiences are we spiritually formed? Tonight we are going to take a look at God in light of suffering and define how we are spiritually formed in those moments. Is God responsible? Do we believe He is in control of both the good, bad, and the ugly?

Holistic Living

Last night was our first night back to FUNdamentals. This session we will be delving into our spiritual formation. Jake gave three points last night, one the world says we are formed from the OUTSIDE in conversely Jesus teaches we are formed from the INSIDE out. Two, it is the INSIDE, the heart problem that Jesus forms and three we are no longer slaves to compartmentalization in Christ, rather we are given to live integrated lives. The integrated life appears to be a life of devotion rather than discipline. The encounter of forgiveness in Christ leads to devotion not obligation, which then leads us to holistic living. We are enabled to encounter and deal with all areas of our lives. Listen in for the entire talk.

Spiritual Formation

Now that we have been given everything how do we go about life? Over the course of the next 6 weeks we will be exploring what it means to be spiritually formed. The first week we will examine the Teachings of Jesus and discuss what it means to interact with the notion Christ is not concerned with the OUTSIDE in BUT the INSIDE out. Jesus' teachings lead to a life that is no longer compartmentalized, but a life of integration. Join us Monday Feb. 21st in St. George's Chapel at 7:00 PM.
