A Word from God's Word . . .
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in
knowledge and depth of insight so that you may be able to discern what is
best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ –
to the praise and glory of God.
What a prayer! And what a life! Notice the wonderful things described in the verse above: a love that abounds and a deep knowledge of both God and world that enables us to discern the best way to live and even to bear the fruit of righteousness through Christ and to God’s glory. That’s a life worth living into: it is a full and abundant life. It is the work of God in us, a gift of grace, and we join the apostle Paul in praying for it. Please take a look at the following links to help you join us in the journey.
By the Spirit’s power, this is the recipe for a peculiar people who love and think and act differently in the world. The remainder of this booklet is intended to invite you into these things through a variety of group and classes and more. To that end, let it be said of us that we live deep and love wide because we live the with-God life!
