In the final Bible study of the 2018 – 2019 year, Daniel will once again lead us in an interactive, open-ended large group study, similar to last month’s study in Luke 14. This time, we will work through 1 Chronicles 13 together.
Some say that we shouldn’t fear God, that it’s not healthy nor right. Others say we should absolutely fear God, and quote the verse, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Should we be more afraid of God than we are today? Or should we be less afraid than we are? The answer is probably most rightly answered, it depends …
This month, we will discuss the character and nature of God that prompted the Bible to record, “David was afraid of God that day …” Is there actually a right and wrong way to engage with God? Is He to be more feared or loved? Is there an Old-Testament God and a New Testament God? Has His nature changed over the ages?
We encourage you to read through 1 Chronicles 13 (and even the chapters surrounding it), make notes, and prepare to engage with God, alongside your fellow TD’ers. I’m sure God has something special in store for us.
See you at TD! – Arthur
There’s so much to say about the picture above, isn’t there? Sandra really hit it out of the park in opening the door for us to begin walking through as we begin to observe, discover, and consider the unique ways God has wired and designed each of us, the people and culture He has placed us in, as well as the experiences He has ordained for us that has shaped us thus far.

This Friday, we will take another step or two towards walking through the doorway by engaging in activities designed to help us discover more about ourselves, the way God made us, and what to do with that.
Jonathan Edwards stated that the two most important forms of knowledge are knowledge of God and knowledge of ourselves.
Jonathan Edwards stated that the two most important forms of knowledge are knowledge of God and knowledge of ourselves. We often spend so much time on the former and so little time on the latter. This is an area of my life that I’ve been personally working on in recent years and have found humbling, fascinating, and powerful. It’s something we must all be working on.
Come join us for TD this Friday as Katherine and I facilitate some exercises and discussion that will hopefully open doors of discovery and transformation in your life. Katherine is a psychology major at UCLA and has been experiencing the transforming power of Christ in her own life the last few years. I look forward to our time together. See you Friday! – Arthur
