DISCOVERING YOUR SACRED IDENTITY


A ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION with MARK BUCHANAN

A Roundtable discussion is a live, virtual event with a Canadian author around the topic of Spiritual Formation. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from the author, ask questions, and engage in discussion. 

Our first Roundtable will be with Canadian author Mark Buchanan, discussing his new book God Walk: Moving at the Speed of Your Soul. 

Doing Life With God.

“If we are to recover what it means to be a creature, to live a given life in a given world, then Sabbath will be a central practice. It is in Sabbath that we learn to rest and wrest ourselves from the anxieties of achievement, of making and doing, that clamor inside and out.”

(Ragan Sutterfield)

“Living graciously within the boundaries of our life as it has been entrusted to us gives our life substance. Oddly enough, something of the will of God is contained in the very limits we often try to sidestep or ignore.”

“Conversion is a gift and an achievement. It is the act of a moment and the work of a lifetime. You can’t attain salvation by disciplines - it is the gift of God… While salvation cannot be attained by discipline around an unsurrendered self, nevertheless when the self is surrendered to Christ and a new center formed, then you can discipline your life around that new center - Christ.” - E. Stanley Jones

“As long as we relate primarily to each other’s wealth, health, stability, intelligence, and soul strength, we cannot develop true community. Community is not a talent show in which we dazzle the world with our combined gifts. Community is the place where our poverty is acknowledged and accepted, not as something we have to learn to cope with as best as we can but as a true source of new life.” (Henri Nouwen)
