Part 3: Calling: The Inward Journey

October 29, 2017

From the series “Discovering Your Identity & Calling” as part of Practicing The Way. You can’t get very far down the path of transformation until you discover your identity and calling, but this journey of self-discovery takes us straight into the maw of the beast: our sin.

October 15, 2017

From the series “Discovering Your Identity & Calling” as part of Practicing The Way. We kick of our series and practice of discovering your identity and calling with an overview of the journey all followers of Jesus are invited to go on. In ways that few people recognize, the journey into self-awareness is also the road to spiritual formation. As we become more like Jesus, we become more like our real, true self. It takes courage to go on this journey, but it’s worth every harrowing, beautiful step.
