This Fall we will be teaching Shepherd's Abbey during our Third Thursday times on campus. You can find our more information by clicking the button below. We will also be teaching in several church locations and will post those here as these partnerships develop. If you are interested in possibly partnering to host a training you can click on the corresponding button below.
...I shall not want
Many times our trials reveal our deepest hunger and desires. Just like when you are in a desert you long for water, in the trials of our life, our deep hunger, need, longing, and wants become visible.
Sheep, although thirsty, will not drink from fast-moving water. One of the jobs of a shepherd is to dig channels to create still water so sheep can have access to what they thirst for. In this section, we will look at four tools that God gives us to help shepherd people toward shalom, the gifts of identity, maturity, emotion, and prayer.
Self-shepherding and Sabbath
You can’t give what you don’t have.
“Please put your mask on first before assisting others.”
As we shepherd others, we must remember that we need to be shepherded too - and part of that is the practice of self-shepherding.
How can we apply what we’ve been learning and exploring to ourselves?
Healthy habits and practices and the gift/command of Sabbath rest.
