Guest Lecturer & Author Skye Jethani
Rethinking how you relate to God
Presentations & Discussions with Author Skye Jethani – Saturday, October 19th at the Presbyterian Church of Barrington
Four 45 minute presentations with Q & A. time
Morning—Rethinking your personal relationship with God
Afternoon—Rethinking your purpose for today
Based on two books currently being studied in Theology on Tap
Morning Session – “Building Your Relationship with God”
Afternoon Session –“Discovering Your Purpose For Today”
The Four Ways We Approach Church Are Not Working. Why?
1. Life under God—Adherence to rituals and moral codes.
2. Life over God—In an almost scientific way we try to “explain it all” with a set of principles.
3. Life from God—Like consumers we seek God’s assistance in our lives.
4. Life for God—Everything we do is for God.
These four ways often lead to failure, frustration, disappointment and burnout
Skye’s Messages for You
1. We are all called into a personal relationship with God that forms the necessary foundation for everything we are and do as Christians in this world.
2. We are each called to specific roles that God has prepared especially for us—our various non-church vocations. We need to find value in all of our work and bring God into it.
9:00 am: Coffee, donuts, and mingling with Skye
9:30 am: Christians use one or more of four different religious approaches in their attempt to control their destiny. None of them work.
10:45 am: Building a closer personal and foundational relationship with God now, through Jesus Christ.
12:00 noon: Light Lunch in Fellowship Hall
1:00 pm: Christians have try to control their futures by imposing their morality on others, or by attempting to be better Christians so as to improve their chances to go to heaven.
2:30 pm: The kingdom will be here, not there. Skye will out-line our roles in all of our vocations right here, right now.
Your Choice: Morning Or All Day?
The lectures, like the two books, are a companion series with the second building upon the first. While we encourage everybody to attend the full day, we realize that some people cannot spend the entire day and will attend only the morning session. You can also get more from the series by reading these highly readable and relevant books in advance. With and Futureville.
