FWD Weekly 27FEB-04MAR

26 02 2012

Monday 27FEB: “[SJ] Hear God”  When Christians fail to take action in correlation to our faith we “starve Jesus” (see Matthew 25:35-46).  We continue our 7-week“Starving Jesus: The Danger of Faith Without Action” series in conjunction with the long-observed ancient Christian tradition of Lent.  Each week leading up to Resurrection Sunday (easter), we will focus on developing one of six biblical HABITS.  This week we explore what it looks like to “Hear God”.  We have questions about prayer: What do I say? How long should a prayer be? How do I hold my hands/posture? Can I have my eyes open? Should I expect God to say something back? These are meaningful questions. Let’s discover the insights of prayer together.  Come discover more.  Let’s meet for a good meal, live music, and meaningful discipleship.  Explore more about Forward on the ‘Connect Weekly’ tab above.

Forward Weekly Primer: Get primed for each week’s conversation. Read one chapter a day this week of the book of Acts or Matthew (corresponding to date). Just worry about one chapter a day. If you miss a day, don’t try to catch up, just read today’s recommended reading. Our unorthodox week goes from Tuesday to Monday:  Tue 28FEB: Acts 8  –  Wed 29FEB: Acts 9  –  Thu 01MAR: Matthew 1  –  Fri 02MAR: Matthew 2  –  Sat 03MAR: Matthew 3  –  Sun 04MAR: Matthew 4  –  Mon 05MAR: Matthew 5

Monday 05MAR: “[SJ] Abstain/Fast” One of six HABITS we are exploring during our Starving Jesus series is “Abstain” and involves fasting and creating margin in our lives.  We have questions and concerns about fasting: What is the purpose of fasting and going without things I need/want? How long should I fast? How do I know if fasting is working? Is abstaining/fasting just about food? Should I expect something to happen? These are meaningful questions. Let’s discover the insights of abstaining and fasting together.
