In this series, we'll take an in-depth look at our relationships with God and others through:
* The power and authority of God in our lives to effect major change * How to pray "past the ceiling"... learning "prayer that cracks the ceiling" * What life in authentic community in the church looks like... do you dare step in? * Wrestling with our most complicated relationship: our relationship with ourselves * What it looks like for us to practically live on mission "below the waterline"
Most of us live with some sense of shame and shortcoming that often causes us to hold back from intimacy with God. In coming to save the world, God could have chosen any method of entrance to humanity—He could have come as a king, as an adult, as a warrior. His work to save us occurred on the cross, as an adult. But before accomplishing that most important mission, He purposely chose to enter humanity through the most helpless, needy, and dependent phase of the human experience. He entered our stories from the very beginning. He grew as a child and navigated through every aspect of our broken humanity so that He could meet us where we are and be fully present with us to heal, relate, save, and empower us. Join us and gain a whole new perspective on who God is!
Jesus said, “Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, & with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” - Matt. 22:37-39
