Showing Grace as a Way of Life: September

Together, our church is embarking upon a nine month journey of Showing Grace as a Way of Life. Along the way, we hope to show grace in natural sphere of life, pursue hearts of people in our sphere of life and eventually tell the good news by unfolding our story and God’s story.

To begin, would you consider what natural sphere of your life you want to focus on?

A natural sphere of life is wherever you live, work, and play. Think about God’s current call in your life – the things you are already doing or want to do. Within the current landscape of your life have, consider:

  1. What am I most passionate about?
  2. With whom do I share a sense of purpose?
  3. Where do I have opportunities to build relationships that include unchurched people?
  4. What are needs and desires I long to see met and flourish!

Here are some examples from people in our congregation to prod your thinking further.

  • A sales manager is going to focus on face-to-face affirmation for his sales team
  • A man who wants to get in shape is starting a running group in his neighborhood
  • A professor is going to look at his office hours with students as a way to share his life
  • A couple with kids at a public school but don’t know many other families are joining the PTA to serve and meet other families
  • One man who enjoys hiking is joining a hiking group
  • A dad is coaching his son’s football team with a heart to care for the other boys and build relationships with their families
  • A mom is focusing on her neighbors playing more with her young children in the front yard and taking walks
  • A couple wants to build relationships with people in a tennis league at a local fitness center.
  • A woman working in an office where she is often alone is going to seek out co-workers to create more connectedness
  • A man who works for a national company is sharing authentically about his life with colleagues across the country.
  • A mom who has started volunteering at her child’s elementary school is finding community there she did not know was there.
  • A teacher who often has troubled students open up to him is discovering this is part of his call and wants to be more proactive in being a safe place for strugglers
  • Moms who do play groups together are going to look for mom’s who feel alone in their neighborhood as they stroll and play at the park
  • A guy who is surrounded in his life by only believers is changing his spot to work out to meet a broader range of people.
  • Women in our Tennis Recreation Group are brining unchurched friends to play.
  • Men in our Fitness Recreation Group are meeting new people at Herdmont and involving them in their group.
  • A woman is planning to replace communicating by social media with phone calls to nurture her relationships.

May the grace that has refreshed us personally and in community also move us with joy in the spheres of life right where God has us! Pray for the Lord’s direction and open doors. Dialogue with friends to help you process what natural sphere of life you will focus on this year!
