Christian Education - Sunday Night Bible Study

(Bible study will resume after the New Year)

Fall Bible Study Class - "The Life You've Always Wanted to Live" by John Ortberg

We will begin Fall Bible study classes on Sunday evenings at 6:30 pm beginning on October 9,
2011. 
 
This fall we will be studying John Ortberg's book "The Life You've Always Wanted to Live".  Here is
a description of the study You Can Live a Deeper, More Spiritual Life Right Where You Are.  An
expanded edition with a new chapter on prayer and discussion questions the heart of Christianity is
transformation --- a relationship whith God that impacts not just our spiritual lives, but every aspect of
living.  John Ortberg calls readers back to the dynamic heartbeat of Christianity --- God's power to
bring change and growth --- and reveals both the how and why of transformation.  With a new
chapter on prayer and added discussion questions, this expanded edition of The Life You've Always
Wantedoffers modern perspectives on the ancient path of the spiritual disciplines.  But this is more
than just a book about things to do to be a good Christian.
 
It's a roadmap toward true transformation that starts not with the individual but with the object of the
journey --- Jesus Christ.  As with a marathon runner, the secret to winning the race lies not in trying
harder, but in training consistently --- training with the spiritual disciplines.  The disciplines are neither
taskmasters nor an end in themselves.  Rather they are exercises that build strength and endurance
for the road of growth.  The fruit of the Spirit --- joy, peace, kindness, etc. --- are the signposts along
the way.  Paved with humor and sparkling anecdotes, The Life You've Always Wanted is an
encouraging and challenging approach to a Christian life that's worth living --- a life on the edge that
fills an ordinary world with new meaning, hope, change and joy.
