Sin and Resiliency for the Long Haul
“Sin and Resiliency for the Long Haul” came about because an organization wanted a resource to share with those who are preparing to go to the field and often think “I won’t have a problem with sin because God’s called me!” But sin and resiliency isn’t just for those in their first year!
Global Trellis conducted a survey that asked four questions:
1. In what ways has being on the field had no impact on the ways you sin? (In other words, you are you wherever you are in the world?)
2. In what ways has being on the field positively impacted your sinning? (In other words, how has being on the field helped you to sin less?)
3. In what ways has being on the field negatively impacted your sinning? (In other words, how has being on the field contributed to you sinning more?)
In this workshop we cover:
—The answers and themes to the first three survey questions
—How to handle the “respectable sins” many of us wrestle with
—3 “simple” takeaways from the survey for your first term
—3 key questions to ask yourself when it comes to sin (and downloadable version hang around your home)
Why do we talk about this? Because Jesus LOVES you and you don’t need to stay on the field unequipped!
