Authentic Faith: 7 Ways God Helps Us Grow In Spite of Ourselves, Not Because of Ourselves Workshop with Gary Thomas
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Thursday January 26, 2023, 4:00 PM (Eastern)
Much teaching on spiritual growth emphasizes the active disciplines (fasting, meditation, etc.), which are all very helpful but too little has been said about the “authentic” disciplines: those seasons where God grows us in situations we don’t initiate or control: waiting, suffering, persecution, mourning, sacrifice, etc. Based on Gary Thomas’s gold-medallion award winning book, Authentic Faith.
Hybrid – Online via ZOOM (Gary will also be teaching live to the Cherry Hills Church community in CO)
Sat, January 28th, 2023, 11:00 am – 1:30 pm (Eastern Time) | 20 minute break included
