We are fearfully and wonderfully made, we are known.
He knows our inmost being...and that’s good!
The journey of finding ourselves
God, lovingly, through the Holy Spirit guides us to our true identity in Him.
He helps us to know and love ourselves as He knows and loves us.
As we learn to love ourselves, we learn to love others better.
Ephesians 2 and 4
We grow in compassion and understanding for others, appreciating the God-given interests and gifts and the amazing diversity of the world and the Church
We grow in unity in the body of Christ
We live out Christ’s mission more fully, TOGETHER!
Being ourselves does not mean doing whatever we want.
The Holy Spirit’s conviction is good (John 16). It is God’s love.
We need boundaries
Returning home to our true identity as sons and daughters of a loving Father
The Prodigal Son - Luke 15
Both of the sons lost sight of their true identity as beloved sons of God. The Father reminds us who we are, and invites us over and over again to return home to loving relationship with Him as he shapes us into the one He created us to be.
