Beginning in January 2013 (that’s tomorrow, believe it or not), I will be kicking off a group known as The Gospel Gripped Fellowship. While I have a Facebook page for this group, do not feel you have to join this FB page to participate. Here is the description:
A group of believers getting together to read a book a month that deals with theology, spiritual growth, evangelism, and other biblical matters. This is an outgrowth of Arapahoe Road Baptist Church, Centennial, CO (http://www.arbc.net).
We have a number of young men who sense and have responded to a call to ministry. This will help keep them sharp as we seek to train them to work out their calling in a local church setting.
But God has called all of us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).
The first book we will read is by Kevin DeYoung and Ted Kluck, “Why We Love the Church.” So many have been disparaging the local/institutional church that it’s time we see that these kingdom outposts are designed by God to “display the manifold wisdom of God” (Ephesians 3:10).
Are you in? I’ll be posting remarks on this blog as well as on the Facebook page. Join us in the journey!
