Weekly Once-Over (08.08.13)

When to Multiply a Gospel Community: Last week we posted an article explaining why we should multiply Gospel Communities; now this week is the second blog post to that from Todd Engstrom. This blog will give GC's and GC Leaders a good understanding of when the right time is to multiply their groups and when not to multiply.

Redemption for the Scars: Here is a great blog post from Kendra Dahl, where she talks about the scars that have built up from her past and how the truth of the gospel is greater than those scars. Kendra shows us a great deal of how the gospel changes and transforms everything.

Are You a Part-Time Churchgoer? You May Be Surprised: Here is a blog post by Trevin Wax about how to desearn if you are a part-time churchgoer. You may be surprised at how Recent statistics show that an increasing number of evangelicals who are firm in their faith are flabby in their practice of actually gathering with their brothers and sisters in worship. It’s the part-time syndrome, and it can sneak up on any of us. Make sure you read to the end of the blog where Travin points us to the gospel even in the midst of these statistics.

Apologetic Sound Bites: 'How Can You Claim There's Only One True Religion?': "How can you claim there’s only one true religion?’ You may be asked this question as you’re at the photocopier at work or at the bar buying a round. Here’s the second part in the apologetics series that will give you some ideas of how to respond when you only have five minutes."

Living In Christ: “Be what we are, be what we are becoming, and be what we will be on the final day of Christ Jesus.” As a Christian our spiritual formation is grounded “in Christ.” This “in Christ” motif, especially in the Pauline letters, sets the spiritual trajectory for proper Christian growth. Yet, it might be the most overlooked aspect of our spiritual growth."
