C.S. Lewis said, "Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself."
We are personally inviting you to awaken your soul.
The Meadow's Spiritual Development Forum is a place to begin to nurture that real love and real joy that God so abundantly and generously wants us all to experience and share.
The Meadow's SDF is different than other spiritual development programs.
In the first year, it was a transforming experience for all of its participants. The Meadow is different because it starts with you. It starts with you having a desire to spend the time developing a relationship with God in a richer more life-changing posture.
We help you develop that relationship through informative lectures, experiential exercises, quiet reflection, small group activities, media arts, drama, music, one-on-one mentoring, and times to share your own stories of growth and challenges.
That is why we meet for 12 two-hour sessions over the next 12 months. Our community is now 50 strong but we have the ability to double that in the next sessions beginning in October.
It's difficult to relay the true message of what real transformation of the soul is in an email but we are seeing and experiencing it every day at The Meadow - God has planned so much more for you than you can imagine. I look forward to talking with you personally to share with you the benefits of your participating in the Meadow's SDF.
Please join us! For more information about joining the SDF, visit our website at www.meadow4.org/our-events or give me a call at (443)425-4729 (Bob).
For His Kingdom,
Bob and Jeanne Arnold
