“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

(Matthew 11:28-30, The Message) 

Another Kind of Life

Does this invitation from Jesus resonate with you? Is there a desire within you for a life of freedom, abundance, and unforced rhythms of grace? This small group study based on a one-day conference taught by Renovaré teachers Carolyn Arends and Chris Hall explores the truths and practices that help us keep company with Jesus and live in unforced rhythms of grace. We will explore four critical questions:

– What is my picture of God?
– What is my picture of the gospel?
– What is my picture of self?
– What is spiritual formation?

Will you join us?

Week One: What is My Picture of God?
Week Two: What is My Picture of the Gospel?
Week Three: What is My Picture of Self? Part One
Week Four: What is My Picture of Self? Part Two
Week Five: What is Spiritual Formation? Part One
