It is our deep desire to help each person at CrossWinds build an intimate and growing relationship with Jesus. Part of what that means is that we work to provide opportunities to help each person discover their unique and individual pathways for deepening intimacy with Him. We do this by providing the setting and facilitators to accompany you and lead you in this actual process. By experimenting and working through some of these experiences, we hope you will make some of these practices a part of the rhythm of your spiritual journey…with the outcome being intimacy, joy and the abundant life that Jesus came to give. Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities!
The Practice: Writing the Psalms of Your Life
Saturday, February 24 | 9am-12pm | Church property | Jim Matthews
Cost: $20 (includes continental breakfast, snacks and all class materials)
With the “audacity of intimacy” the writer of the Psalms lays before us the vast array of soul-states a God-loyal person might experience. The Psalms are not the nice prayers of nice people. They are the raw, earthy, honest expressions of combustible human beings whispered and/or shouted a listening God “whose love endures forever.” Most importantly to us, the Psalmist’s words were often on the lips of Jesus! They were spiritually “formative” for him. With the Psalms in-hand as our template, this practice experience will focus on the forms of the Psalms and give opportunity for you to participate in Psalm-writing your own life experiences. No prior writing experience is necessary. We will write. We will listen. And, in faith, we will wait to see how God chooses to show up. Register here. Contact Jodie Tey for more info!
