October is a great month in our region, a time when life moves more indoors and thoughts turn to reflection on all that God has done in the past. Building on the success of last year’s retreat, Josh Prather will encourage us to look at three words that help us maintain life balance as found in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. SIT WALK STAND is fresh insight into the message of Ephesians written by Chinese believer, Watchman Nee.

SIT. Because the man of God must learn to sit; to rest in what God has done for us. Only after we learn to rest can we WALK. Walking out in obedience to God’s Word in light of what God has done for us. Finally, we STAND  firm on the ground Jesus has given us to hold when trials come.

COME LEARN how to lead a balanced life through inspiring teaching, great fellowship, and fun activities. Take the time to recalibrate your life around these simple words, SIT WALK STAND, and see how God uses them to lead us to Himself and empowers us for faithfulness in Him.  Listen to the call to come away as we reset and focus on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith. 
 
 
“So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith– that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have the strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19
