Tentatively beginning Wednesday, June 10, 9:30-11am
Led by Rebekah Cook
Rebeka Cook will be leading a six week study by Henry Cloud called Churches that Heal. The six-week series is a discipleship piece: it is active life engagement, applying scripture to your life. It will be hard because it involves change and transformation, but it will be helpful and life giving.
Here is a description:
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” –John 8:31, 32
We all want the freedom that Jesus brings. But what we often do not realize is that He said to realize that freedom is going to take some work. It is going to be a process of living out His teachings, His ways, and the processes that He told us to “walk in.” The word “know” there is an experiential word, not just intellectual. We must engage in what He taught.
This program is a growth path through many of the processes that Jesus taught which bring healing to many of our deepest hurts, wounds, and inadequacies. He really did bring healing to the brokenhearted, the lost, the weak, and all of us who have gone our own way, or who have been hurt by others. But as the passage says, we will know that freedom as we engage in “holding” to those teachings… living them out. As He said in another place, if we only hear His teachings and do not put them into “practice,” it leads only to destruction. This study will help you see how so many of His teachings bring about healing in the emotional and relational areas of our lives.
The basis of this study is the truth that all our problems stem from living in a fallen world where two things happen: we are sinned against and wounded, and also, we have our own failures to contend with. Ultimately, that can be described as a failure to reflect the full “image of God.” But the great message of the New Testament is that as we grow up “into Him” and begin to reflect the image of who He is, we get healthier and healthier, and are healed more and more. This study will help guide you and your group members through that process and also call you to some rigorous self-examination through questions that at times will pierce your heart. My hope is that it will motivate you to make changes in your life and enable you to experience the healing God wants to give you.
Attached is the participants guide you can print it if you want or just work through with a journal. We will watch the ten-minute videos together in “class.” Feel free to contact Rebeka as well to let her know if you are interested.
