Discovering and Practicing Spirit-inspired, Christ-centered, God-honoring worship
We have received a worship grant to use over the next year (2020-2021) to take a closer look at the concept of Sacred Pathways – the concept that each of us is wired to worship in different primary ways. This idea comes from the book by Gary Thomas of the same title, but our overall invitation is to deepen each individual’s Christian journey by exploring these 9 different pathways together. We hope that taking this journey will expand our ideas of what worship is, as well as offer perspective and gratitude for the diversity and variation of how people respond to God.
This journey is something our whole church will be taking together, with integration of the pathways in our Sunday and weekly worship, along with invitations to opportunities to dig deeper. Make sure you are subscribed to Doug’s Weekly Words to receive information, and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more questions! One invitation (via email and on our Sacred Pathways page) will include our purchase for you of the book Sacred Pathways using the grant. So stay tuned!
