New Year - Defining Moments. The whole story of salvation and Scripture is full of defining moments. God creates moments for the men and women he invites into his larger story. They are moments of insight and understanding, moments when he offers a clean break and fresh start, there are moments in which he gives special encouragement, there are moments when he calls his leaders into something more. In this series, we look at the moments God uses to impact people so that we can be open to receive them. We also look at how we can learn to create moments for others as a way to love them.
There are times in our lives when we realize, normal isn’t working. We seem to be just treading water, overwhelmed or struggling to find meaning in those activities and relationships that have always been lifegiving to us. Even the life of faith seems to be ‘meh’. We are experiencing a spiritual dryness that infects all aspects of our lives.
Think of your computer. If you have too many programs and processes running, it will slow everything down. Programs begin crashing. The solution? Reboot the computer. So to in the spiritual life. We need to spiritually reboot at times. We need to step back, refocus and refresh ourselves.
This series will reflect on what is needed for such a spiritual reboot. What is it in our everyday lives that we can adjust, tweak or change that will allow such a reboot to happen?
