What is the most important thing you can do as a spouse, parent, friend? Keep seeking God in the depth of your own soul. Come join with others in a discussion-reflection on cultivating this life in Christlike character, bringing blessing in your family and community relationships.

This series is based on readings from the book Maturing Toward Wholeness in the Inner Life.  The author has been a mentor and counselor to me and my family over the past 30 years.

From the book: How can someone become free of unwanted, destructive, compulsive behaviors which, if left unaddressed, will shred the very fabric of life? The insight Jesus brings to the subject is a game-changer: outward behavior expresses the condition of the inner life. Meaningful and enduring change cannot happen until inner wounds are healed and character is transformed. How does such transformation take place? The answer in a word: Jesus. Placing our trust in him, we receive a new kind of life–God’s own life. But this new life must be cultivated in order to grow. This happens in discipleship. Establishing Jesus as Master Teacher for all of life, I become his follower, his student. This isn’t about ‘earning’ anything. It is a free gift of grace–God doing for me what I cannot do for myself. God does it; but I must choose it. Jesus imparts wisdom as to how human life was designed to be lived, and the power to live it. Christlike character is gradually formed within. Outward behavior reflects the change. The enduring fruit is healing, wholeness, fulfillment. Maturing toward Wholeness in the Inner Life outlines the way.
