What is the Emerging Journey?
Who is God?
Who am I?
What does God desire to do through me?
8 months of reading, pondering, questioning and partnering with the other journeyers in seeking the answers to these questions. A time of awakening our spiritual senses to God's gracious work on the earth. We had the opportunity to grow by way of exposure to Spiritual authorities writing on the subjects, coupled with a mentor's pastoring in the process.
Who is Jesus, how did he, while on earth, engage with the world; how does he engage with me? Taking the time to look more fully upon His meekness and thus reflect more clearly his image.
Reinforcing spiritual disciplines like meditating on the scriptures.
Writing our own narrative and hearing God's voice in it.
Doing the Strength Finder Questionnaire to discover our particular signature themes upon which to build strengths.
Sharing love and belonging through the discovery process.
Becoming more comfortable with questions that have yet to receive their full reply
Right at the beginning of the material there was a prayer made of Psalm 84:5-7.
Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.
We began our course setting our hearts to hearts to grow in the [E] Journey.
