We shake off the mourning with our next season of life: dancing. What does the season of dancing bring for us and what does it mean to be a spiritual dancer? Find out below.
A while back, The Way did a series on Mourning and it is also covered extensively in The Way. Click on either of those to help out our missions project. Today we look at mourning less as a state of being and more as a season in our lives. To be sure, mourning will come to all of us. We just have to make sure we navigate it appropriately.
Weeping vs Laughing
The value for both of these emotional times in our lives can't be understated. A lot of people might tell you to hold in your tears or restrain yourself in your joy, but God want's you to let it out. We look at the differences and similarities in both of these seasons based on what we found in our coverage of them last week. Need a refresher? Click weeping and laughter to get to either of them.
Lesson 7: Apostolic Authority
This week, Pastor and Brother Larry deviated from the traditional Search For Truth Lessons and worked on establishing a sure foundation for their next few lessons. In this week's lesson, they looked to establish two things: you can't look outside of the Bible for doctrinal foundations and the apostle's doctrinal message is what we must live by.
We looked last time at weeping and how, even though it is a difficult time, God can bring us through it to see greater things. Today, we look at that greater time as we examine the time of laughter in our lives.
After a one week hiatus, we return to our A Time To Series and focus on weeping. This is not a season that most will gravitate towards, but it is one that we all will endure. Everyone will have weeping moments in life. The question is not how to avoid them, but how to get the most out of your relationship with God in them
Making Persecution Your Memorial
We've talked a lot about persecution this month, addressing what it is and how it affects us in both the temporal and spiritual realm. Today, we take a look at how we can use persecution to drive us to move forward.
Repentance and Identity
We continue our review of the LOGOS series at The Pentecostals of Alexandria. This week, we turned our attention towards the New Testament and looked at two major topics: (1)Repentance and its place in our lives and (2) Jesus and who He is and His relationship to the Father and the Spirit. Check it out below.
We have a logo for our Bible Study project for Rios de Agua Viva! If you want to learn more about this project, visit the Missions page on our blog. Check it out below and read the description and why we chose this approach. Note: This is a preliminary drawing and may not represent the final product.
As you can see, we have gone with the the word Dios, which is Spanish for God, for the logo. We chose this one word approach because the topic we are examining in this study is God and His identity. The colors are placeholders for now so that the church and our viewers can imagine what the logo would like in multiple hues. Please let us know your thoughts on the colors in the comments. The one element we and Pastor Gama wanted to include was a subtle nod to the oneness of God. We accomplished this with the i in Dios. It is an artistic creation of the number one. As the number one is in the middle of the word Dios, the oneness of God is at the heart of the identity of God. We used Affinity Design to create the logo on a MacBook Air.
We hope you enjoyed this update and look forward to sharing more updates with you on this project as it develops. Remember to share your thoughts in the comments as your voice may help in the development of this project.
