The Marvel of Bearing God's Image - A Mini-Retreat Hosted by Sibyl's Book Club • Sept. 17, 2020 • 12-2pm CST
This is a 'Pay-what-you-like' event:
September 17, 2020. 12-2pm CST/1-3pm EST/10am-12 Noon PST
You are invited to a mini-workshop hosted by Sibyl’s Book Club, replacing the normal book club conversation, called:
The Marvel of Bearing God's Image
Based on the book Fearfully and Wonderfully by Dr. Paul Brand and Philip Yancey.
The human body holds endlessly fascinating secrets. The resilience of skin, the strength and structure of the bones, the dynamic balance of the muscles―your physical being is knit according to a pattern of stunning purpose.
In this book, renowned leprosy surgeon Dr. Paul Brand and bestselling writer Philip Yancey go on a remarkable journey through inner space―a spellbinding account of medical intervention, pain and healing, and the courage of humanity. Discover eternal truths revealed by our seemingly ordinary existence. The human body is a window into the very structure of God's creation and a testament to God's glory.
2 Corinthians 3:18 "We all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."
This workshop will be a conversation around:
The human body as a window into the Body of Christ
Counting the cost as we consider our own individual roles
The upside-down values of God's kingdom
How a healthy body responds to the pain of a wounded part
Just as stress stimulates bone growth, our challenges often leave us stronger
Just as toxins impede our physical health, how sin interferes with our spiritual state
What happens when the body's system fails to send warnings?
Although it may seem paradoxical, pain serves a vital role in uniting the cells
How the practice of spiritual disciplines helps us listen and respond more attentively to Christ, our Head
