SF105: The Lord's Prayer
SF105 draws our attention to the Prayer the Lord Jesus Himself taught, and seeks to learn this prayer as a Pattern for our own prayers as we seek, by the ministry of the Holy Spirit, to grow in Christlikeness to the glory of the Father. Our focus will be on relating with God as “Our Father,” like Jesus. And, like Jesus, we will seek to relate with Him as our Heavenly Father, Who is wholly Separate and Sovereign, Who Providentially Cares for us in our Everyday Life on Earth. This course will offer suggestions for the daily use of The Lord’s Prayer for a deeper relationship with our Triune God.
Session 1: Relating with God as Our Father

Session 3: Relating with God as Our Heavenly Father in Our Everyday Life on Earth
Date: 07, 14 Jul & 04 Aug 2018 (Saturday)

SF202: Meeting Marys in the New Testament
How does a Christian continue to grow deeper in Christ after the initial thrill of experiencing God’s love and saving grace? Even as we commit ourselves to serve Him, how do we renew ourselves after the demands and drain of ministry? We know about the core spiritual disciplines of keeping our quiet time, prayer and reading the Bible. Spiritual disciplines however, are not just to nourish our spiritual life, and also to cultivate a spiritual attentiveness to God.
This Spiritual Formation course aims to introduce a group of spiritual disciplines to help us “to practice the presence of God.” A framework linking these disciplines and the process involved will be explained.
The course is designed to be practical. Beside the teaching segment, we will practice the disciplines e.g. the writing journal reflections, and meeting up with spiritual directors to discern God’s leading in your
life. These disciplines will help us to grow deeper in Christ and provide renewal after the drain of ministry.
