Critical Journey is the product of a beautiful piece of work by Janet Hagberg and Robert Guelich. It is an attempt to articulate the key stages in the life of faith.
Over the last three weeks, I presented an overview of the topic, then went on to run a test of the theory on none other than the father of faith himself; Abraham. Pressing-on, tomorrow we start with Recognition of God.
With this in mind I’m reminded of a thought by St Augustine (Bishop of Hippo Regius, present-day Annaba, Algeria), in which he said:
People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering
To this end, we will be engaging our minds with questions like: what is our concept of God; when did we encounter God; where did we encounter God; and how we encountered God.
Each week we will examine one of the six stages: exploring, evaluating, challenging, reflecting, learning; drawing strength from the bible, and each other’s experiences. The series will culminate with a celebratory service.
So why not drop-by for a life-changing experience? This 90 mins might end up being a catalyst for some awesome things.

Our Big Sunday Celebration can be best described as a community Christian festival. So in the spirit of thanksgiving, together we: sing, pray, give, celebrate life, discuss current affairs, present thoughts from Biblical themes, and encourage one another; like one big family!
