The Joy of Relationship (A Life with God Story)
Adam Ormord and Carolann Duffin of Grafted Life Ministries are joined by Jan Hassler and Phyllis Morton, both trained spiritual directors in the San Antonio area who have recently encountered the transformation that happens in our Life with God small groups.Jan and Phyllis share parts of their formation journey and how they have witnessed transformation in their group members. As relationships are built and trust is forged through safety, honesty, and listening, a group leader can create space, pray, and partner with God in what He wants to do in the lives of the group members.Carolann Duffin also shares pieces of her formational story and the process that became the Life with God journey, as well as glimpses into a new chapter of training Life with God leaders.“Learning to love God, ourselves, and others is a lifetime project directed by the Holy Spirit. It does not happen overnight or in a 6-week program. LWG is not intended to offer a journey to complete maturity, but rather we intend to provide a tool that invites participants to honestly and regularly engage in their relationship with God and members of the Body in the hope that, over time, new habits will form in their lives.”Life with God can be used with men’s/women’s/co-ed groups, singles, couples, college students, and retirees. As we deeply desire to partner with those who desire to build strong communities, how might God use Life with God in your community?Resources Mentioned:Do You Love Me? by Debbie SwindollThe Genesis of Relationship by Debbie Swindoll and Monica Romig GreenGrafted Life Ministries | Resources at a GlanceThe Grafted Life Podcast is provided by Grafted Life Ministries, helping people build deeper relationships with God and each other.
