Growing Deeper

Introduction

 

In the midst of the pandemic, it has become clear that our personal and community spiritual and relational vitality is of utmost importance. What we have done in the past has been accentuated, for better or for worse. For instance, if we have been consistent in our own walk with the Lord, it would tend to put us in a better position to walk with him even closer. Conversely, if for instance, we have not been connected with other spiritual friends, say in the small group, we would find ourselves more isolated and cut-off from them during the circuit breaker.

 

As such, in planning for the next couple of years, we must place a special emphasis and urgency in deepening our spiritual and relational habits so as to continue to grow deeper in the Lord and in community. This has become our pastoral burden for the church leadership for 2021 - to encourage and cultivate a deeper walk in the Lord with the community. 

 

Growing Deeper Invitation

 

To this end, we are introducing a “Growing Deeper” invitation or challenge for 2021. We are inviting you to consider learning, practicing or doing some basic but great spiritual exercises during the year. There are 10 practices that we have selected and we encourage you to pick at least 4 of them. The purpose is to develop a deeper walk with the Lord in the context of a nurturing and encouraging community of spiritual friends. You can pick some that are familiar to you, as well as some that are more challenging so that you can “stretch your spiritual muscles.” Most of these exercises are to be done with a few other friends. The intention is to encourage a closer fellowship and bond between you and a few other brothers and sisters in Christ as you grow deeper in the Lord. No person is an island, and we need one another to last the spiritual journey. 

 

Once you have decided which exercise to practice, please fill up the Sign Up Form available at the bottom of each page of the exercises. This will help us know how well this invitation has been received, or to make adjustments in the future. In the course of the year, we hope to encourage one another in different ways to keep going, but there will be no compulsion or pressure. We only hope to inspire and spur one another positively in the course of the year. Let’s see how many of us would be able to complete this invitation by the end of the year. Remember, there is no failure, except the failure to try! Conditions permitting, we look forward to a great celebration at the end of the year!
