“The Path Less Traveled” is an important new teaching series from Society Church. It will be a foundational series of spiritual growth for us as a church family as we move forward together in 2014. This series is all about learning to live a life of worship for God.
The apostle Paul made it clear how we are to worship God in Romans 12:1-2 where he says:
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
In this teaching series we will be learning some ways of worship together that will help us discover and live out these “good and perfect and pleasing” ways of God. The 4 practices we will be exploring together are:
1. The Guiding Practices of Worship: Adopting prayer, fasting, & the study of scripture into our daily rhythms.
2. The Inter-Relational Practices of Worship: Cultivating Christian community and missional living.

Society gives us their ideas about the path we are to take in life, how to form our views, values, priorities, practices and preferences. But to live as a follower of the way of Jesus we are challenged to take a different path, to hold some different views, values, practices and priorities. How do we hold onto these different views and values while staying lovingly & respectfully engaged in relationship with those that hold different values, views, practices & priorities? The answer is held in the way of Jesus, he modeled for us a perfect life of worship for God and a perfect life of love for our neighbor.
