The Essentials

One of the universal characteristics that we all share is the desire to change. We want to become better husbands, wives, parents, students and workers. We long to be more patient, loving and courageous. But how? How do we grow? How do we become more like Jesus? That’s what The Essentials series is all about. Over the next five weeks we’ll explore what the Bible teaches about how we change and some of the time-tested disciplines that God’s people practiced in the Old and New Testaments in order place themselves on the path of grace and growth.
