Contemplation and Participation

A little word study in Philippians 4 led us to also see some connections to something our community of faith has been learning about in Robert Webber's "The Divine Embrace". The ancient way of spirituality combines heart and head-- or put another way, contemplation and participation. True spirituality is not an empty journey into self, but rather a "prayerful pondering" of God's story; and it's also not an endless search for personal experiences, but rather an active participation with God in His purposes for the world. Sound intriguing? Join us for this podcast and see ancient spirituality at work in Philippians 4.
