This weekend our friends from Kazatin, Ukraine, joined us for a time of connection, learning and prayer. It was so interesting to see how quickly our Lighthouse community found unity and friendship even though it was for most the first time they met.
We looked at the stages of faith in our Christian journey, from discovering God, to learning about God, to the productive life, and then inner journey towards deeper surrender and self-knowing. God is more interesting in who we are becoming, than what we are doing. This is a difficult thing to embrace for those striving on the hamster wheel!
We are loved, valued, broken, yet cherished by the Savior. May God bless this friendship of ministries as we journey together. Next weekend conference will be at their place, about 2.5hrs northeast. We’re believing our gatherings will open up to more hungry sojourners on the learning path.
We love what God is up to in Ukraine!
