On July 30th and again on August 27th, we are having a Ladies Bible study (location yet to be determined). While we will of course take time for food and fellowship, our focus will be on studying God’s word together. In addition to Scripture, discussion for both sessions will be drawn from Ordering Your Private World by Gordon MacDonald.
Here’s a description from the book cover to give you a taste of where we will focus in these studies:
“One of the great battlegrounds of the new century is within the private world of the individual. The values of our Western culture incline us to believe that the busy, publicly-active person in ministry is also the most spiritual.
Tempted to give imbalanced attention to the public world at the expense of the private, we become involved in more programs, more meetings. Our massive responsibilities at home, work, and church have resulted in a lot of good people on the verge of collapse.
Gordon MacDonald equips a new generation to live life from the inside out, cultivating the inner victory necessary for public effectiveness.”
As the dates get closer, we’ll provide more specifics on our discussion points. Until then, consider reading the book if you’re looking for an inspirational read for the summer, but know it is not required reading in any way.
As our church moves to its summer schedule, be sure to stay connected with your church family and especially remember to connect with your One-on-One Ministry partner.
