Description

For so many pastors in our media-saturated and frenetic culture, running on empty seems like the inescapable norm. Poured out constantly, we struggle to be renewed to maintain a spiritual reserve from which to minister. Yet we follow and serve the Source of all fullness, the magnanimous triune God, who desires to quench our spiritual thirst so that from us may flow rivers of living water. Paul's letter to the Colossians, more than any other, speaks to this source of fullness in Christ. And so from this text and out of his experience, Darrell Johnson will help us find fresh ways of staying alive in the life of the Christ; Bruce Hindmarsh will draw out themes on fullness in Christ from Colossians, and supply evidence of these themes in the down-to-earth lives of three great pastors from church history; and Susan Phillips will introduce us to some simple spiritual practices to help us renew and maintain fullness in Christ in the midst of our busy lives. Sessions include:

  • The Source: Fullness in Christ Alone - Ross Hastings
  • Christ's Fullness in Affliction: Gregory the Great (Col. 1:24) - Bruce Hindmarsh
  • Praying with Scripture - Susan Phillips
  • A Pastor-to-Pastor Conversation 1 - Darrell Johnson
