Church-Wide Study

Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers (Dane Ortlund)

“This book is written for the discouraged, the frustrated, the weary, the disenchanted, the cynical, the empty. Those running on fumes. Those whose Christian lives feel like constantly running up a descending escalator. Those of us who find ourselves thinking: ‘How could I mess up that bad—again?’ It is for that increasing suspicion that God’s patience with us is wearing thin. For those of us who know God loves us but suspect we have deeply disappointed him. We have told others of the love of Christ yet wonder if—as for us—he harbors mild resentment. Who wonder if we have shipwrecked our lives beyond what can be repaired. Who are convinced we’ve permanently diminished our usefulness to the Lord. Who have been swept off our feet by perplexing pain and are wondering how we can keep living under such numbing darkness.” ~ Dane Ortlund

Know God, Know Self Study

The Gift of Being Yourself: The Sacred Call to Self-Discovery (David G. Benner)

“Who Am I?” This self-imposed query erupts from deep within every human soul. The desire to create and project a useful identity is universal. We cast ourselves in certain roles and seek to be viewed in a certain light. Our self-chosen icons may be real, or they may be a mask. We protect our false identities with great enthusiasm, attempting to fill in what’s missing without understanding the God shaped vacuum in our souls. “I’m here on my own”…”I’ve got to make the best of this”… “It’s all up to me.” But false identities also come with a lot of baggage… Fear, insecurity, futility, and loneliness.

“Christian spirituality involves a transformation of the self that occurs only when God and self are both deeply known. Both, therefore, have an important place in Christian spirituality. There is no deep knowing of God without a deep knowing of self, and no deep knowing of self without a deep knowing of God. John Calvin wrote, ‘Nearly the whole of sacred doctrine consists in these two parts: knowledge of God and of ourselves.’”  -David G. Benner
