BOOK OF THE MONTH
Would you like a better relationship with others and with God?
Live a Larger Story.
Spiritual community is always a miracle
Imagine a place safe enough for your walls to be torn down. Safe enough for you to own and reveal your brokenness. Safe enough for you to journey together with others with your wounds and worries and washouts visible. And safe enough to see beyond the brokenness to something alive and good and whole.
We realize that life is too much for us, not just because there is too much pain, but also because we’re too selfish. And only the resources of the Spirit are adequate to move us through the brokenness to true relationship.
Forming spiritual community is always the work of the Spirit. It is never ours. Most of what we do is give up control, get out of the way, and let the Spirit take over. More than anything else, we pray.
I just figure God likes it when I show up.
– Brennan Manning
Prayer is a lifeline to God.
Relational prayer is about God and me. It leads to personal transformation.
Relational prayer is about hearing God’s voice. It puts relating to God ahead of asking for things.
When the “Get Things from God” paradigm switches to the “Get to Know God Better” paradigm, a space is created that the Spirit wants to fill.
Present yourself to God without pretense and pay attention to how you are thinking about Him. Purge yourself of anything blocking your relationship, and approach God as the most important thing in your life.
Come empty. Come with your desires. Come believing. And be released.
Released to bring Him glory. Released to become a source of joy to Him. Released to find your center and your hope.
Released to the Live the Larger Story- a miracle full of joy and life with God and others.
