Have You Seen? {February 28th, 2021}

Last Week’s Theme: Invited

Everything You Need to Know about Our 2021 Online Retreat by the Velvet Ashes Team—”Together, we’ll move through the rhythms of seasons, discovering their spiritual significance. You’ll explore the season of your own soul and listen for God’s personal invitations to you in this season.”

That Is Your Concern {Book Club} by Rachel Kahindi—”How often do we assume what God wants us to do, and he suddenly shows us that something we never thought of is actually in store for us?”

Invitation to Share: Hear from Women in the Community about Their Retreat Experience by the Velvet Ashes Team—”It was a new space where my specific spiritual needs as a cross-cultural woman were being addressed.”

You are Invited by Danielle Wheeler—”In all the shifting seasons and change Jesus experienced, there’s a constant. There’s a pattern that doesn’t change.”

We carry with us the Good News of Jesus to our neighbors and friends, the people we serve. But they do not worship or follow us. Our relationship with the sovereign God of the universe is not secondhand. 

Are we feeding only off encounters others have with God? Or are we drawing near and seeking him for ourselves?

Are we leading others to encounter him firsthand too? 

People will disappoint us. Leaders will fail. We run straight to our faithful Father who never changes.

Join us this week for this important topic! Share your stories of how God is meeting you right where you are. Be part of the conversation this week by commenting on blog and social media posts, or sharing your own thoughts with the hashtag #VelvetAshesSecondhand.
