Starting on Wed May 06 2024 12:00:00 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time), this series aims to explore and understand how we can align our lives with God's purpose for creation. As we journey together we will delve into the essence of embodying God's purpose for creation – SHALOM. This invitation is extended to anyone with a longing to cultivate a more profound bond with their community and foster deeper connections for the collective well-being.
Throughout the series, we will delve into various topics: Change (March 6th), Contextualization (May 1st), Connecting with Community (July 3rd), Connectionalism (September 4th), and Capacity (November 6th). In the first within the series, Change, we will consider the dynamics of change: What brings about change? Change is an ever-present force, and comprehending the mechanisms behind it enables us to guide those transformations proactively. Don't miss out on this opportunity to deepen your understanding and make a positive impact. Join us and be inspired to live into God's intention for creation!
