A New Beginning

A New Beginning

So, here we are! This is an exciting next step for the Adult Discipleship Ministries here at Grace. We hope this medium will be another tool that helps us continue what we begin in our weekly studies of God’s word. Spiritual formation requires input from many directions. If this format provides another way to further the dialog around God’s Word, creates opportunities to stretch our thinking and stimulates a greater desire to live out the call of Christ in our lives, then we will be glad. We invite you to join us as we leap into the great unknown of cyberspace….
A word about the title of the blog itself. “4twelve” comes from one of the Scripture passages that drive all we do in ADM…Ephesians 4:12. Take a minute to read it and you will understand our vision and purpose; which is also a part of the Mission Statement of Grace Chapel. We are committed to “equipping people in their faith journey.”
Let’s talk about what we are learning in our classes and studies. Let’s share our insights and our discoveries. Let’s not be satisfied with mere information about God and His Word. Let’s seek to be formed into the image of Jesus.
We will leave you with this thought from T.S. Elliot, as quoted by Eugene Peterson in his book “Tell it Slant”:
“Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word…
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?”

    Welcome to cyberspace! I do hope this will be a place where people will share stories of their journey with God and where we can spur each other on to love.
