Four Seasons of Spiritual Growth
Saturday 28 April 2018
St Aloysius R.C. Centre, Euston, London NW1 1TA
In the Bible, spiritual growth is likened to the natural development processes of plants, and the part played by gardeners, whether human or divine. In a Year's Turning will explore four recurring movements of this growth -
Becoming rooted and grounded in God
Emerging into being in response to God's invitation
Struggling towards abundance through resistance
Bearing fruit and being willing to fall
These four are movements, not stages. They are seasons that meet us afresh within a lifetime of growing, stirring us once more into abundant life. Chris says:
The ever turning seasons of the year and the rhythms of life within the natural world have helped me understand the different movements of God within my experience. I hope this day will enable us to sense how we can co-operate with God as we are drawn into a more fruitful life.
