THE ROAD TO CHARACTER
The Road to Character Sermon Series
Sundays, 11:15 am, prumc.org
God takes our suffering and redeems it, granting us endurance, strong character, and, finally, a life filled with hope. During this fall series, we will further explore the qualities of a life of character.
September 27 | Integrity
October 4 | Courage
October 11 | Forgiveness
October 18 | Humility
This fall, we invite you to join us on a meaningful and transformational journey. During this season, we will deeply consider the qualities that create a life of character. Each week a new quality will be introduced in two sermon series – The Road to Character and Politics and Peace. A companion prayer journal is available that will allow us to further discern our thoughts as well as explore different types of prayer.
One type of prayer we will practice is “Centering” Prayer. Each day, either before or after journaling, we will sit in silence and listen to God. As our journey progresses, so will the lengths of sacred silence. Our hope is to deepen our spiritual relationship by being open to God’s presence and direction. Our daily prayer email will follow this journey and feature an audio link of prayer and timed silence.
