“Transformation 1 – How God changes us” introduces the ‘praxis’ (practical application) of Being the Beloved. After a recap of the basic framework and practices of being free to love as Jesus loves, Alexander introduces how God transforms us into love.
The Dance of The Beloved is about the mysterious beauty of God’s love in the Trinity, between Father and Son, by the Spirit, into which we are caught up in Christ
YOU as God’s Beloved addresses the transformation of our identity and destiny through Christian baptism, which was modelled on Jesus’ baptism.
“Jesus as THE Beloved” is the third teaching in Being the Beloved – A Year of Spiritual Formation. It’s about how Jesus experienced God’s love in his humanity, from birth to his baptism in love, and throughout his ministry.
Being the Beloved – THE FRAMEWORK – gives the big picture for what it means to become God’s Beloved, in terms of the vision and values, and the priorities and practices
“Being the Beloved – A year of Spiritual Formation” is the chosen theme for Following Jesus congregation for 2014. It’s all about learning to live in and from God’s love.
FROM Session 4: Priorities and practices are what we actually do… what we do first, of most importance, before we do other things. They answer the question of What? we do, and How? we do them… i.e. our basic disciplines and skills that we learn to do and practice on a regular basis – in order to live out our core values, in pursuit of our vision, to fulfill our mission under God.
