Update: Strategies for Spiritual Formation in the Church (3/30/2013)

Posted by tom | Mar 30, 2013

As I shared in Participating in communities of truth in Spring 2013 (1/30/2013), I have a passion to pray and work toward spaces in which "the community of truth is practiced." This spring term has been rich with exploring "Strategies for Formation in the Church" in the classroom, the local congregation to which we belong, InterVarsity's Faculty Ministry, InterVarsity's Emerging Scholars Network, and our home. 

In many ways the two students (Holly and Joe) with whom I'm working with as a Ministry Mentor (PM694 Mentored Ministry II) have taught me much more than I expected -- providing a unique lens for self-reflection and interviewing of those with whom we're connected (more of this to come). Our emphasis has been on PSU-Hershey Christian Medical Society (CMS)/CMDA), but on Tuesday we advanced in our collaboration with friends at Elizabethtown College. Pray for discernment as this project grows and I consider how to apply what I'm learning to other ministry contexts. 

Thank-you for being part of the larger community of truth of which I am member AND an encourager/support of the smaller communities of truth of which I am member! If you're in the area, please mark your calendar to join us for Deeply Loved: Extending the Heart of Jesus with Tom & Theresa Grosh (May 14, 7 pm, Elizabethtown Brethren in Christ Church) with Keri Wyatt Kent (speaker and author on Spiritual Formation).
