God Talk 2016/2017 Adult Formation presents The Heart of Discipleship

Come see and experience God’s story and have the Bible and your faith come alive!

Grace Church is excited to present a Christian adult formation series of webinars that will enrich your understanding of the Bible as well as strengthen your relationship with God and others.

Is God Relevant in your life? Deacon Carmen J. Viola will be pointing us towards self-discovery and a bigger way of seeing and experiencing God. Let those who have eyes see! Carmen’s webinars will use visuals from his new book as well as images from his trips to Israel to make biblical concepts come alive.  Come join us.  If you sign up before Sept 30th you will also receive the PDF copy of The Heart of Discipleship for free.

It has often been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” During the Middle Ages, churches used vivid imagery, including stained glass windows and paintings, to tell God’s story. Prior to the modern era, most people could not read or write so they relied on pictures and religious interpreters to understand the Bible. Pictures, for many of us, are still a powerful way to share stories and understand biblical context.

The book by Carmen Viola is beautifully illustrated and involves the viewer in the ongoing conversation and narrative of what it means to follow Jesus. The illustrations in this book depict stories from the Bible to illuminate God’s word. The images can be viewed by a child on one level, while an adult can view the same image and be led into a more complex understanding of the Creator. Often seeing things from a different point of view can give us fresh insight into God’s plan for our world and our lives. These stories of the ancient world come alive in pictures and show all of us why God’s word is still important and relevant today.

What if you could see the world as God sees it – not only with an open mind, but with an open heart? Come! Discover what God has been trying to show us all along. God will meet you wherever and however you are…Right Here, Right Now!

We invite you to participate in this series of Free webinars and on-line discussions. For more information contact The Reverend Carmen Viola, Deacon  phone: (267)236-5163 or email: dac.viola@gmail.com

The Webinars will “go-live” every Monday evening beginning on Sept 26th through on-line invitation.  The time is from 8 – 9PM.  To sign up please email us at theheartofdiscipleship@gmail.com. You will be given an invitation link and the syllabus for the year as well as your free color PDF of the book.

Missed seminars will be made available on our YouTube channel.
