lrc spiritual journey
1. Nourish the Root
Seek the Lord’s presence to examine the root of our faith in attitude and practice:
*Cutting away dead strands, those that
do not reflect Christ
*Treating strands that are still viable
*Nourishing healthy strands
2. Move To New Soil
Seek the Lord’s presence to create in us a clean heart and renew in us a right spirit:
*Stop relying upon structures, tradition, and history to nourish and support us
*Start relying upon faith in Christ
*Start depending on one another as His faith community
4. Share the Harvest:
Share and minister to the surrounding community asking ourselves:
*How do we share the fruit we are bearing?
*How should we minister to the community?
*How do we maintain the mark of Christ in all that we bear?
3. Grow A Fruit-bearing Tree:
Grow a community around purpose,
*What is the purpose of the worship service? Study time? Ministries?
*What does this require from us? Why do we do the things we do?
*How do we love one another? Visitors? The community?
