Spiritual Journey 2018 Day 1


Our congregation has embarked on a 21 day corporate spiritual journey of seeking the Lord for the coming year using the ancient disciplines of the church.

Our pastor has asked us to begin to seek God for a greater excellence, a leaving behind of mediocrity and luke-warmness. Already I have been challenged in many areas of my life.

I have chosen as my study, in addition to the Bible, Eugene Peterson’s book RUN WITH THE HORSES.

Here is the day one quotation I am dwelling on.

The more the gospel is offered in consumer terms, the more consumers are disappointed. The gospel is not a consumer product; it doesn’t satisfy what we think of as our “needs”. …life… is not  an American ‘pursuit of happiness’. It is more like God’s pursuit… (of us)”  Eugene Peterson itallics mine
