December 2014 Retreat – “Love : the Spirit’s Power”
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED THE RETREAT, WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE NEXT ONE!
This December our retreat is “Love – The Spirit’s Power”. What is the love of God? Certainly not the impersonal and vague word that is talked of in the new age media! God-love is the almighty power of God let loose in our lives. How do we connect with that love? How do we love those who would do us harm? What does this love look like in our daily lives? Are there boundaries to this love? We will be addressing these questions and much more in the retreat; it promises to be the most practical retreat we have had for a long time teaching you step by step how to live in this all-powerful love every day.
I am convinced that the greatest power in the universe is the love of God manifest and defined in the Lord Jesus. When that love is released into our lives through the Spirit we live the life that we were created to live – truly free and at rest from which we work his works in the circle of our world and beyond. Religion has taught us that life is a grim battling against sin and hopefully going to heaven when we die; the Gospel is that Christ has overcome sin and the world of darkness and has brought the beginnings of heaven into our lives now.
Our retreat in December is not only revealing this incredible news of God’s unique love but how we partake and participate in that love; how we release that love into our daily lives and into the lives of those around us. In such release our lives are never ordinary and boring but alive with the love that is the life of God. Living in this love as a fish lives in the sea is the way of wholeness and effective living.
The winter retreat could be the most significant event in this ministry of the last decades! You must be there and experience the fellowship of likeminded believers and the Presence of the Spirit among those of one mind and one accord.
