Beyond Belief

We’re all looking to get closer to God, but wonder how. Do we have the time? Do we know how to talk to God? Is God speaking to us? What does Jesus’ life have to do with our lives? How do we engage spiritual practices? What are spiritual practices?

If these questions speak to you, join us at this year’s Advance. (We don’t “retreat” in our faith, we want to “Advance.”) Saturday, February 15 we gather from 9:00 am – 2:30 pm at Mike Heflebower’s in Highlands Ranch. Our presenter will be Scott Seeke, pastor, speaker and writer for print and screen best known for the 2010 Sony film Get Low, which starred Robert Duvall, Bill Murray and Sissy Spacek. His book Uncle Bush’s Live Funeral was published in 2015. A native of upstate New York and longtime resident of Atlanta, Scott is a former intern of Pastor Dave and now serves as pastor of Holy Cross Lutheran Church near Detroit, MI.

The day’s agenda will look something like this:

  • Session 1 will be focus on what discipleship is, which is imitating and becoming like Jesus. Therefore, we will look at the life of Jesus, so we can know what to imitate.
  • Session 2 will be about what we do, today, as faith practices. This will be the experiential part. We will try several faith practices and process them
  • Session 3 will be about how we take what we have done today and implement it in our lives, with the goal being that participants leave with a plan to practice their faith using these techniques.

It will be a great day to gather and experiment in connecting to God. The day will begin with an exploration of how Jesus lived. Not what he said, not what he did, but how he lived. Jesus's life will provide the roadmap for our exploration of practices that are both ancient and modern. Beyond Belief: Faith as Practice will equip you with practical tools to deepen your connection to God.
