Explore the ten traits of a healthy disciple, including topics around prayer, relationships, servanthood, worship, spiritual disciplines, and relating to the church. Using the book of John, the author looks to the beloved disciple as an example of a life lived close to Christ. The class will give you practical advice on how to live with Jesus and for Him. Personal experiences bring the traits of discipleship into modern context.
The word “advent” stems from the Latin noun adventus meaning “a coming, approach or arrival.” Advent begins the Western church calendar year, a season of fresh beginnings tied into an ancient and ever moving story: Jesus’ story. The advent of God to man is a story that encompasses our past, our present, and our future and reminds us what God has done, what He is doing and what He has promised to do. In this practical workshop, you’ll come to understand how the season of Advent can inform and invigorate your celebration of the Christmas tradition.
