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.

(6:00 – 7:30)pm

The Drama Room, Bexleyheath Academy, Woolwich Road, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 7D

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!

Community Bible Experience: New Testament, The Book of James

After an awesome time studying the richness, depth and breadth of The Book of Hebrews, we move on to The Book of James. Like Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, this wisdom book has a lot of insight and guidance to offer any willing scholar and disciple.

So this Friday we immerse ourselves into pages 311-318 of The Books of the Bible, New Testament, by Biblica!>/h2>

Community Bible Experience operates like a Reading Club…

Participants agree a weekly reading plan, then every Friday we meet in a relaxed fashion for an hour to discuss the following simple questions:

  • What’s something you noticed for the first time?
  • What questions did you have?
  • Was there anything that bothered you?
  • What did you learn about loving God?
  • What did you learn about loving others?

Afterwards, we enjoy light refreshments while we catchup, pray, challenge, and encourage each other.

We recommend a copy of The Books of The Bible by Biblica because of it’s contemporary design and translation, and we set ourselves a weekly target to read eleven pages.

  • (7:00 – 8:00)pm on Fridays
  • 52 Arcadian Avenue, Bexley, Kent DA5 1JW

If you need help with setting one up in your home, community space, church or perhaps offices; please get in touch!

The Words of Our Elders: Billy Graham

We have not yet learned that a man is more powerful on his knees than behind the most powerful weapons that can be developed.

We have not learned that a nation is more powerful when it unites in earnest prayer to God than when its resources are channeled into defensive weapons.

We have not discovered that the answer to our problems can be through contact with God…

What a glorious thing it would be if millions of us would avail ourselves of the greatest privilege this side of Heaven!

~ Billy Graham

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.
