We are all broken relationally. This is one of the harsh consequences of the Fall. Defensiveness, low self-awareness, blaming, fear, and self-absorption, for example, characterize our relationships. The great news of the gospel, however, is that Jesus came to save us from our sins and transform us, particularly in the way we love others. In other words, He shows us how to become people who are approachable, non-reactive, keenly self-aware, courageous, and honest.
The Emotionally Healthy Relationships Course shows us how to deepen our love for others through practical tools and skills
Personality contributes significantly to how we follow Jesus. It impacts how we live, how we learn and how we love. Take an opportunity to complete a version of the Myers-Briggs Personality test and talk about the results with your community group.
Spiritual gifts have two purposes (1) to glorify God (2) to encourage, support and improve others.
Gifts are not natural talents, fruit of the Spirit, Church job descriptions or spiritual disciplines. But when we know our spiritual gifts and do what we are created to do, together, we will be a healthy interdependent and harmonious church.
To learn more about your gifts and the gifts of those around you, sign up for our next Spiritual Gifts Learning Lab.
In recent history, the Enneagram has emerged as a pop-culture personality that can actually have great value in discovering more about yourself. It combines your basic personality type, with what “drives” you, while also identifying areas of growth and stress. For information about how the Enneagram works, click here.
During our Messy Middle sermon series in January 2021, our discipleship team crafted a 14-day devotional series on “getting out of life’s messes”. This is based on a traditional Christian practice of having a ‘rule of life’.
Journey with us for 14 days, around the foundation of Luke 10:27 & Matthew 22:37-40, as we seek to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and love our neighbours as ourselves.
We want you to carry the weekend experience with you, throughout the week. Download the Talk About It guide to follow along with the content from the weekend at a deeper level. The guide focuses on three main areas: studying the Bible, understanding its impact on you as a person and understanding its influence on others around you.
Following the weekend message, we create space for you to interact with the teaching pastor through a time of question and response. Hosted by Josh Raine, Spiritual Formation Pastor at Trinity, you get the chance to hear about topics that the teacher wished they had more time to unpack, answers to questions submitted by listeners or hear the motivations around why they chose to focus on a certain part of the Biblical text for that week. Find the podcast in our app or through the link below.
