Ministries : Creating a Life That Matters
Creating a Life that Matters (CLM) is all about relationships: intentional, authentic relationships - with the Sacred, our Selves, and our Passion. CLM transforms lives and inspires people to more directed, clear, passionate involvement in their lives and in the life of the planet, through the support of their local MCC. The three courses are outlines below. CLM classes begin at All God’s Children MCC on January 5, 2011.
Opportunity to Grow
The next CLM class is enrolling students. There are 3 courses, 6 weeks each. Once class starts, enrollment is closed. Class is limited to 20 people. You can still sign up at the Information Table in the narthex. The cost of the course is $135 if paid in advance, or three installments of $50 payable every six weeks.
The Three Courses
The Sacred: While many would agree that relationship with the Sacred is the fundamental beginning of all faith paths, this transforming experience is often lost when we exchange our spiritual vitality for empty religious practices. In the six sessions of “Rediscovering Relationship with the Sacred,” we explore what it means to be transformed by an encounter with the Sacred, and rediscover loving God with heart, soul and mind.
My Self: As modern, Western people, we expend time, effort and money seeking to understand who we are. In “Rediscovering Relationship with My Self,” we explore some of the influences that have shaped us, and ways to create a self we will want to live with, others will want to relate to, and God will be able to use in the service of all that is Sacred.
My Passion: Our passions make us most aware of our personal power, energy and joy. Many internal and external factors influence how successfully we manifest these passions in our lives. In the six sessions of “Rediscovering Relationship with My Passion,” we explore ways to manage those factors, and discover what gives us power, energy and joy as we serve the Sacred through church.
