Love Over Ego – A Small Group

July 21, 2018

This small group experience will invite you to ask: How do I find my identity? On what qualities do I base true self-esteem? What is the difference between arrogance and genuine confidence?

We will use the ancient allegorical story of Daniel and his friends, who boldly face the powerful Babylonian rulers. We will get a powerful view of the ways that vanity, manipulation, and desire to control never hold up to the grounding power of confidence, love and true self-worth.

These themes are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago. Something deep within us is stirred when we see that when hurricanes, mudslides and earthquakes strike, people from all walks of life come together to help carry one another through flood waters, bring food and water to hungry families, or make human chains to rescue strangers from sinking vehicles.

In times like these, we as members of the human race tend to rise above petty issues, put aside differences and simply help one another, remembering our shared humanity.

For times when we find ourselves getting lost again in a self-focused mindset, Love Over Ego challenges us to remember what matters most.

Like Daniel who stands amid lions, and his friends stand in the fire, we also have the option to stand true to our values even in hard times. We invite you to join us in this program, as we practice letting genuine love take priority in our lives.

Introduction to this small group experience is Sunday, September 30 at 12:30. The first of seven group meetings is Sunday, September 30, 2018. Call the Group Facilitator, Clark Echols, for more information and to RSVP at (513) 772-1478.
