The Cycle of Grace: Living in Sacred Balance
Are you soul-weary? Do you struggle to make time for God in the midst of a packed schedule? Or do you sometimes stay so busy doing things for God that you can't relax and just "be"? Jesus faced amazing pressure and overwhelming demands throughout his ministry, but he did not experience the burnout so common today among Christian ministers and laypersons. We can learn the rhythm of living that Jesus demonstrates throughout the Gospels--the Cycle of Grace. The Cycle of Grace is a rhythm that allows for rest and renewal keeping us deeply rooted in God's love even as we work hard.
The Cycle of Grace examines 4 components of a grace-filled life:
Acceptance, Sustenance, Significance, Fruitfulness
Our eCourse is designed for individual participation. Video recordings of teachings with authors Trevor Hudson and Jerry Haas guide the way. Practical exercises, suggestions for journaling and reflection, and a place to share comments with others. Designed to be completed in six sessions, you are free to work through the material at your own pace.
Grow in your awareness of God's deep love for you, nurture your spiritual life, understand who you are called to be in the world, and learn how to restore balance to your life with Trevor Hudson and Jerry Haas in The Cycle of Grace.
