Roots: Experiencing the Practices of Jesus
May 3, 2020
God’s invitation since the creation of the world has been to plant our roots in His unconditional love expressed in the gift of His son and seen in the Ways of Jesus. Beginning to learn the Way of Jesus first requires us to know whether we are rooted in His love or in most cases, rooted in fear. When we do this, we can then discover the fulfillment and peace that become ours when we say “yes” to His offer, and to “keep company” with Him.
Becoming BETTER starts with knowing what exactly we are growing towards. We’ll begin by learning the law of love given by Jesus and set that as our growth goal in becoming better. Then, we’ll discuss how to partner with the work of the Spirit in our lives through spiritual practices that will cultivate love in our hearts, toward God and toward others. Lastly, we’ll imagine a world where God’s people truly embody, not religion, not rules, not judgment, but love.
