We continue this week with our devotional from Henri Nouwen's letters to his nephew, Marc, explaining his faith and addressing the void in life his nephew finds himself feeling. In the first letter, Nouwen discusses Jesus as the heart of our existence considering the question which Jesus asked his disciples: "Who do YOU say that I am?" Last week we looked at the first half of Nouwen's second letter where he discusses the significance of what happened o...

We continue this week with our devotional from Henri Nouwen's letters to his nephew, Marc, explaining his faith and addressing the void in life his nephew finds himself feeling. In the first letter (see last week's devotional), Nouwen discusses Jesus as the heart of our existence. The central question for last week was one which Jesus asked his disciples: "Who do YOU say that I am?"

Take 10 @ 10:00 - A Weekly Devotional

Henri Nouwen is one of my favorite theologians and authors. Years ago he published a short book of letters written to his 19-year old nephew, Marc. The purpose of these letters was to respond to a void Marc felt in his life and in these letters, Nouwen shares in an honest way the spiritual life he has found.

Take 10 @ 10:00. Our Weekly Devotional

We have been discussing our Wesleyan beliefs (from The Wesleyan Way by Scott Jones). Last week we began our discussion that part of our Wesleyan way is to invite others to join us along the way. We are encouraged to have an outward-focused faith, living for others and not ourselves. Witnessing through our actions is essential, but we should not ignore witnessing with our words (which is often harder, I think).

Take 10 @ 10:00: Our Weekly Devotional

Over the past few weeks, we have been looking at how love wins over hate, how God's grace works in our lives, and how we are called to transform our lives by growing in spiritual maturity. In today's lesson, we discuss how we are called to invite others on our journey.

Following Christ involves a paradox. Jesus said, if you want to find your life, you have to lose it; if you want to find happiness, you have to give your...
