Dr. Robert Jeffress tells how living well is experiencing God's best for every area of your life!
Life today is plagued by failed relationships, financial pressure, unmet goals, and dashed dreams. Everybody wants the “good life” … but we’re constantly frustrated by our inability to experience it, even when we energetically pursue all the bestselling methods for achieving success. There must be a better way to live. Yet it seems even those who appear “successful” aren’t truly satisfied. What’s the true secret to genuine success? God has the answers. And you’ll discover them in The Solomon Secrets.

SCOUTING THE DEVINE by Margaret Feinberg
Facilitator: Melissa Dudley
Day & Time: Thursdays @ 6:00pm
Start Date: October 3
Location: PCN Choir Café
Book Cost: $10

Scouting The Divine is a personal spiritual pilgrimage to understand portions of the story of God that may have never been understood before. It’s an intentional search to move from just reading the Bible to being ushered into the story—one that can be touched, tasted, heard, seen and smelled.

We are all “Scouting the Divine” – looking for ways in which God intersects our world in vibrant expressions.

While some dismiss the Bible as a dusty old book, author Margaret Feinberg views its pages a portal to your next adventure. Not only is it chock full of clever plots and compelling stories, but it’s filled with historical insights and literary beauty. Yet, lately, Margaret couldn’t help but notice the gap between the ancient world and our own.

What does it mean to know Jesus as the Good Shepherd when the only place we have encountered sheep are at petting zoos? How can we understand the promise of a land overflowing with honey when we buy ours in a bear-shaped bottle? Is it possible to grasp the urgency of Jesus’ invitation to abide in the vine when we shop for grapes at a local grocery store?

Join a spiritual adventure that moves from reading the Bible to entering stories that can be touched, heard, seen, smelled, and savored – and in the process, discover for yourself the beauty and wonder of Scripture all over again.
