The Pursuing Spiritual Transformation series focuses on personal transformation through the five 'G's': Grace, Growth, Groups, Gifts, and Giving. 'Groups' invites you to enjoy the rewards - and embrace the risks - of community. Step by step, this study will challenge and encourage you to explore the amazing potential for growth found in authentic relationships. You'll study the true nature of friendship. The power of paying attention. The path to intimacy. The encouragement of being for one another. The 6 sessions are: This Is a Friendship, Love Pays Attention, Knowing and Being Known, When Community Breaks Down, Forgiveness, Building a Passionately Inclusive Church, and Being 'For' One Another.
