A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, some fell on rocky places, and other seed fell among thorns. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times. (from Mark 4:3-8)
The Weekend Series
Healthy things grow, and so do healthy people. We all want to grow. Spiritual growth is a special kind of personal growth. To say that we are growing spiritually is to say that God is transforming us in real ways, so that we are becoming more like his son, Jesus.
In this Crossroads weekend series, we will explore the mysteries and practicalities of spiritual growth and transformation. We will learn spiritual exercises that encourage spiritual growth, and we will experience and depend on the Holy Spirit, who causes us go GROW.
