coming this Fall
Spiritual Development Forum
            The Meadow

We want to be clear!

What a difference a word makes . . . The name of our upcoming 12 meeting program, Spiritual Leadership Forum, has some puzzled and questioning.

  • Do I have to be a leader?

  • I'm not a leader so can I still be a part of the upcoming Forum?

  • I'm not a leader in the church, so how does this apply to me?

 So we want to clarify the program with a better title. The Spiritual Leadership Forum is now titled the Spiritual Development Forum. (SDF)


The Meadow is excited to help you expand your development and growth in your spiritual lives. The SDF is designed to ignite your passion to dwell in the places of God's abundance. There is always so much more that God has in store. Settling should not be an option.


CS Lewis says, in what I think is his greatest essay, "The Weight of Glory",  "It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased."


Lewis also said the serious business of heaven is joy, real joy. And this is also the serious business of the God's kingdom on earth! 


The Meadow's Spiritual Development Forum desires to challenge you to enjoy your personal relationship with Christ in new and fresh ways, reaching deep into God's love and finding Him in ways you could never imagine! 

Enjoying God,

Bob Arnold

The Meadow Ministry
