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.

This Sunday at Healingsprings fellowship: Overview of Critical Journey | Part 3

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 two weeks, I presented an overview of the topic, then went on to run a test of the hypothesis on none other than the father of faith himself; Abraham. We explored his: recognition of God (stage 1); discipleship (stage 2); productive life (stage 3); journey inward (stage 4); and Wall.

This Sunday I will do a quick recap, then consolidate the life of Abraham in light of the journey outward (stage 5); and his life of love (stage 6).

From next week we will work through the 6 Stages: exploring, evaluating, challenging, reflecting, learning; drawing strength from the bible, and each other’s experiences as we journey through life. To that end The Critical Journey will run as a seven part series, over seven Sundays.

So why not drop-by for a life-changing experience? This 90 mins might end up being a catalyst for some awesome things.

This Sunday at Healingsprings fellowship | Part 2: Overview of Critical Journey

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.

Last week I presented an overview of the topic, then went on to run a test of the hypothesis on none other than the father of faith himself; Abraham. We explored his: recognition of God (stage 1); discipleship (stage 2); and productive life (stage 3).

This Sunday we will delve deeper into Stage 3, progress onto: his journey inward (stage 4); the wall; his journey outward (stage 5); and his life of love (stage 6).

Once this is achieved we will then apply it to our lives through a staged process. To this end The Critical Journey will run as a seven part series, over seven Sundays. We aim to explore, evaluate, challenge, reflect, learn; and draw strength from each other’s experiences as we journey through life.

So why not drop-by for a life-changing experience? This 90 mins might end up being a catalyst for some awesome things.

This Sunday at Healingsprings fellowship: Critical Journey| Stages in the life of faith

One of the best analogy for life is that of a journey. A journey is a path to a destination. That destination can be described as our destiny…

Most of us find ourselves on this journey not knowing where we are going, or what the journey is all about in the first place. So we sheepishly go with the flow: days, months, years; and we are none the wiser. Seasons change, powers shift, news headlines trend, technology advances; we grow older, but none the wiser.

“The journey of a thousand mile begins with a single step”, says the great Chinese Philosopher, Tao Tzu. With this in mind I will be starting a seven week series entitled, The Critical Stages of life. The Critical Stages of life 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.

Jesus gave a very short and insightful analogy of life using an agricultural process. In this parable captured only in Mark’s version of Jesus’ story, we are offered private viewing of the mystery of human existence: the farmer, the seed, the soil, time, sprouting, growing, reproduction of seed, and finally the sickle by the farmer for the harvest.

Interestingly, the farmer and the harvester is an external agent. He is beyond human control, just as we are powerless over our birth and death.

So why not drop-by for a life-changing experience? This 90 mins might end up being a catalyst for some awesome things.
