High Impact Residency Program Shifts to Observance of Spiritual Rhythms
By Bener Agtarap
In our November webinar, we covered several of the processes of starting something new to help give planters a framework as they move through the different phases of a start-up. We looked at how to bridge the gap between making new contacts, forming new relationships, and beginning to gather folks to start something intentional. We talked about the importance of having a team, identifying who it is you are feeling called to serve, and getting clarity around who you are as a faith community. Anyone who has done this work before knows how daunting it can feel at times. The work never ends.
Our world has taught us that our value is wrapped up in what we produce or how much purchasing power we have. This can lead us to overwork ourselves to the detriment of our own health and the health of our relationships. It is easy to get lost in the work and lose sight of why we do it in the first place. As church planters and ministry leaders, we know that we cannot give to others what we do not have ourselves.
We hope you can join us on Tuesday, December 14 to talk about spiritual rhythm. We will shift our focus to learn about rest, rhythm, and creating a rule of life. We will know how to truly surrender ourselves and our work to the one we are doing the work for.
As church planters, we understand the immense value of what we do. Likewise, we are aware of our own hearts and the presence of grace that surrounds everything we do.
