On August 9 we are going to start a 35 day spiritual journey as a church.
Often times our spiritual journey seems to take place in isolation with flashes or moments of community, however, on August 9th we are going to enter into a spiritual journey together to connect closer to Jesus and one another. Each of us will identify an area to fast from (television, radio, phone, web, food, hobby, etc.) and devote that time to prayer for our community and our relationship with Jesus.
The theme for our 35 day journey is “Partnership”. Our guiding passage for the next 35 days is found in Philippians 1:4-6:
4In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
My greatest desire is to see each of us see how we can tangibly partner with Jesus Christ in the gospel over the next 35 days and that this spiritual journey would begin to create a lifestyle that continually experiences the fulfillment of walking in Christ and with Christ.
