For this 9th session of Discover the Word, we began with the article, The God Revealed in Jesus Christ. I told the class that I consider this booklet (article) as some kind of “textbook” and that we will be referring to this booklet often as we discuss other issues and as we go through the materials in the 40 Days of Discipleship.
We had an interesting discussion and although our progress through the booklet was rather slow, I think that listening to the comments and questions were quite beneficial for everyone.
There were three things we were able to take home from our study of the booklet. We learned that our Trinitarian faith is: 1) Trinitarian-based, 2) Christ-centered and, 3) Relationship-focused. That is, our Trinitarian faith is based on the belief in one God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is also Christ-centered because Jesus Christ is the center of our faith and devotion to God. We understand the Bible through the lens of who Jesus is. And thirdly, our Trinitarian faith is very much relationship-focused. God is interested in loving relationships.
Last Wednesday evening, our local church leadership in my home church, the ReThink Community asked me to lead in the Lord’s Supper Service which we have traditionally observed annually. This is aside from the regular Lord’s Supper Service which are normally done during worship services or in some cases in other congregations, once a month.
Here’s an edited (shortened) video of our Lord’s Supper Service last Wednesday evening.
Last week, we completed the series of articles under the section heading, “Theology in General” in the 40 Days of Discipleship material which we are following.
For this last Wednesday, we began to discuss the first article in a series under the section heading, “The Triune God.” We spent the whole evening discussing the article, An Introduction to God, written by Michael Morrison. Of course as usual, there were questions and/or comments which may or may not be related to the main topic but are just the same relevant and part of our intent in the discipleship class for us to get to know the Lord and for him to transform us by the renewing of our minds.
My apologies for the low quality of the video. It was a bit dark and there is flickering in some parts. I guess it’s because I used the wrong camera lens during this session. I should have used a fast lens as I used to do. Anyway, the audio is just fine.
