The greatest impediment to our own awakening is we are pretty sure we are already awake. We don’t know what we do not know. There is so much more of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, waiting to be discovered, delighted in and demonstrated in and through our lives. Awakening must begin and deepen in our own hearts. As goes our hearts so go our homes. As go our homes, so goes our churches. As go our churches, so goes our towns and cities.
The Awakened Life Course is a four week journey of Scripture, prayer, conversation, and transformation; all centered around the awakening and disciple-making mission of Jesus Christ. Expect to be challenged, encouraged, equipped and empowered for the important season of faith ahead.
The course will unfold over four weeks with the following subjects:
- Week 1—Waking up to the Word of God
- Week 2—Waking up to the Spirit of God
- Week 3—Waking up to the Body of Christ
- Week 4—Waking up to the Kingdom of God
HOW THE COURSE WILL BE DELIVERED
The course begins February 7th and will be delivered online and consist of a combination of live and pre-recorded presentation elements as well as asynchronous online interactivity through a private Facebook group. The once-a-week gathering will take place during your regular LifeGroup meeting time. Individuals that are not in a LifeGroup are welcome to meet on Monday evenings, 7 p.m. in the Atrium at Foothills. **Register to receive the Awakened Life book and full access to resources.**
As the course proceeds, course participants will read a common text of Scripture from two celebrated awakening passages: chapters 37 and 47 from the prophet Ezekiel. These readings are included in the course companion book, The Awakened Life, by J.D. Walt. The church has purchased the Awakened Life books for all participants that REGISTER with New Life Oneonta.
In addition to the weekly online gathering (which will be recorded and made available on-demand), we will post additional supplemental resources both to the private Facebook group and each participant’s Digital Hub account at my.seedbed.com.
J.D. Walt, author of the Awakened Life and Sower-in-Chief for Seedbed, will serve as the host and lead teacher of the course.
