Over the past three I have been teaching Bishop Berlin’s book entitled Courage. It is
examining the way in which Jesus demonstrated courage through his faith. It is a good and inspiring book.
But what is the most exciting part is to be part of almost 30 women and men gathered each week to learn and grow together. Over the past several weeks we have each shared our perspective, discussed our opinions, and learned together. Being vulnerable with each other and approaching our learning with willing hearts and open posture has invited God into each of our classes. Our classes have been Spirit filled and impactful.
Many of the small groups that I have been a part with for many years now have been similar. Gathering with a group of Christians to learn, pray, and support each other has always been one of the most powerful tools for growing in one’s understanding and relationship with God. Building Christian community to walk through life with is a gift for each of us. Studying scripture together builds deeper understanding.
If you are not part of a small group/class, Sunday school class, women’s circle, or ConneXion group I encourage you to consider which group you would like to connect with. Additionally, if you have any questions or would like to hear more about our groups, please let me know.
