I can’t tell you the number of Christians who love God, go to church 2 days a week, tithe, and serve faithfully……………and are in BONDAGE!
>Did I serve enough?
>Am I doing what a deacon should do?
>Should I give an additional offering?
>Do I need to take a Missions trip this summer?
>Have I prayed and read my Bible faithfully?
>Should I be teaching Sunday School?
>Would I be forgiven if we didn’t go to church tomorrow?
The list is endless!
David Hawkins wrote in his book, Power vs. Force, “I wake up in the morning grateful to be alive: I wake up a free man due to GRACE”! How about you? Is that the condition of your soul 2-3 times a week, once a month, or you can’t remember the last time that happened?
Has that ever been a goal for you: to AWAKEN FREE?
About Life Revealing Community...
LRC is a community of people who are on a JOURNEY, both naturally and spiritually.
NATURALLY our journey began in the Patrick Thomas Bank Building on FM1960 in 1987. A year later we moved across the street into a strip center. A year later that we moved back to the South side of FM1960 in a free standing building what was once known as the Pep Rally. Two years later we bought an empty building at the corner of High Life Road and FM249: formerly a Walker Kurth Lumber building. Four years ago we bought six acres on Woodedge where we are now still building a community home.
SPIRITUALLY we began as reformed Baptists, took on some Catholics, and added a few crazy people. Slowly we shed our Baptist roots and became Charismatics with wild praise and worship. We slowly got our emotions under control and adopted an orderly apostolic culture. In 2007, the winds of change began to blow and we discovered that we really weren’t a church. Rules, rituals, dogma, and doctrine slowly gave way to relevant relationships and an intimacy with the Spirit that resides in all of us.
We’re still on the journey and always will be. Our CORE is Christian but we know God is too big to be confined to any one religion or denomination. We believe in unconditional love, not conditional love. We meet on Tuesday and Friday nights. There is no lecturing, no praise and worship, no sermons, just a community of people coming together to discuss how life can be lived more fully and abundantly.
Come and check us out. You’ll be surprised and I think pleased.
Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self
by Richard Rohr
Dissolve the distractions of ego to find our authentic selves in God
In his bestselling book Falling Upward, Richard Rohr talked about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey? This book likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense True Self must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process is not resuscitation but transformation.
