This teaching is a diagrammed construct. The pathway (arc) of the Christian journey begins with a foundation of the church and tradition, which gave us the canon (Bible) and then moves us through our selves – the inward journey – and onward toward loving others, and unity with God through Jesus. The end is the “teleios” – Colossians 1:28 – “mature in Christ” or complete, or perfect.
This week Pastor Dan:
Notice it is not “How To…” but rather “How We Read…” This teaching digs under the surface of our own lack of obedience to the WORD. In short, we lack obedience to the Word because we have failed to understand story, the narrative nature of scripture.
Pastor Dan starts this series on Mother's Day Weekend here at Lakeland. Interpret the world for you child = poet; usher them into g-d’s presence = priest; and challenge the status quo and declare the kingdom of heaven here on earth as it is in heaven.
This week Pastor Garrett talks about what you can expect from Lakeland.
