“Father to the fatherless, defender of widows— this is God, whose dwelling is holy.
God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.
But he makes the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.”
– Psalm 68.5-6 (NLT2)
Family is a gift from our loving and good heavenly Father. Family is His design for the church as well as society in general. Healthy families impart LIFE; providing a deep sense of acceptance and belonging as we grow into the men and women, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers we were always meant to be. And yet, some of the deepest wounds and hurts in our lives come from brokenness in families, both in the home and church. What might it look like for us to build healthy kingdom family that not only nurtures and grows, but also heals and restores?
This week, Chad will be launching our new fall series, “Healthy Kingdom Family.” Over the next several weeks, the Sunday morning teaching will provide the context for our small group discussion and ministry throughout the week. Don’t miss it…
