Session 1 February 20 - How Do I Renew My Mind? - Paul says that if we want real transformation, it starts with our thinking (Romans 12); the things we have come to believe. Yet there is a significant difference between knowing something and believing it. Many things have come to define us. Not all of them are true. It's time that we learned how to think wisely. It leads to greater intimacy with God. It allows our faith to transform our living. - The Renewed Mind
Session 2 February 27 - Identify the Thinking That Shapes Us - We hear about worldviews (foundational ways of perceiving life) but they often remain abstract. What does influence how you see life? How can you identify wrong thinking patterns in your life? How can you recognize and stop the thinking that dishonours God? - Understanding Biblical thinking
Session 3 March 6 - Changing Our Community's Culture - How can we interact with our community in ways that bring healing and renewal? What if I don't want to hand out blankets at 3 a.m.? Is that wrong? What do my gifts have to do with sustainable change in my own community and how do those abilities support and enable others who are very different than me? Learn two secrets that are often overlooked in community planning and see the direct links between community involvement and faith. Sustainable change
Session 4 March 13 - There's Got To Be More To Life ~ Considering the Effects of Christ's Death - Look at the death of Christ and his resurrection through three different lenses: (1) The power struggle in heaven and its impact on human indentity (2) What was it that actually tempted Eve? (3) Reconcilitation: how far reaching was the impact of Christ's death and resurrection and how does it effect my daily life? - The Atonement
When & Where
Paradigm Ministries (a Ministry of Outreach Canada)
Many people long for healthy, sustainable relationships. They desire a depth in their personal spirituality. They want to believe that God is active and involved, reliable and accessible. Yet their life's story seems to be filled with too many contradictions. Their religious experience seems more regimented than relational. They lean to the side of disillusionment while holding out for more. They are not prepared to simply walk away.
Paradigm Ministries assists individual to reflect upon what we honestly believe. They are invited to jettison pat answers while searching for meaningful answers to their life questions. There is help to move deeper in our experiential relationship with God.
