DISCIPLESHIP – Spiritual Talk Series

Jesus calls us to be his disciples and commissions us to go and make disciples. In order to live into this calling, we need to be aware of the fact that there is a process of growth and development towards maturity as followers of Jesus. When we understand this process, we can begin to see real growth in our own lives as followers of Jesus as we identify where we are currently and what the next steps are for us as we move towards greater maturity. In addition, we can help orient others in this journey, as well, helping them to begin the journey of discipleship and grow to be disciples who make disciples themselves.

During this series, we will be introducing a new shared practice that helps define our core mission of making ‘love God, love others’ Christ-followers. The practice of discipleship, illustrated with a square, illustrates the stages of growth in a disciple’s journey to maturity. The work of discipleship comes in mastering different developmental milestones in order to turn the corner from one stage to the next.

    Is anybody just a bit unnerved by the right angle box shape? moving clockwise? When this is adopted as an emblem, it doesn’t end well.
