This Sunday at Healingsprings | Critical Journey: An Introspective Angle

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.

(6:00 – 7:30)pm

The Art Centre, Drama Room, Bexleyheath Academy, Woolwich Road, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 7DA

There are free parking spaces directly in front of the school and on adjacent streets

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!

The Words of Our Elders: John C Maxwell

Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. It may mean giving up familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, and relationships that have lost their meaning. ~ John C. Maxwell

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.

Spiritual Intelligence: Exponential Growth

Exponential Growth…

In order to grow exponentially, we need to either do more of the same, or many of the same.

Meditate on those words for a minute… Exponential Growth is an organic process; cells multiply creating tissues, and tissues – organs. A grain of corn to ears, a mustard seed to mustard tree…

It is evident that an idea or venture that lacks the requirements for growth – dies prematurely. Therefore move that idea to the next stage, expand that business, seek that promotion at work, pursue personal and spiritual development, improve your lifestyle, learn a new language, read more, travel more…

As spirit beings housed in a body, and functioning with a soul, we need proper nourishment in order to maximise our innate capacity for growth.

So lets give life all that we’ve got, and at the end we’ll be able to bow out with words like these;

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith
