Frank, Cheryl, Dan, and Liz… Four singles on SGS started a book reading group of their own…
The Rare Jewel Of Christian Contentment By: Jeremiah Burroughs.
The sweet Christian fellowship that we have found is almost indescribable. Using the live voice chat on Skype, we read together an entire chapter and then discuss what we’ve read. Most often we’ll share what has convicted our heart during the reading. I can tell you that this book is very convicting. Burroughs does not “beat around the bush” as he addresses heart issues of discontentment. He brings us to Christ’s School of contentment and teaches us how to be satisfied in God’s disposal of our every condition. What is so amazing is when we find ourselves taking joy in God’s disposal. Wow! His will becomes our will. His desires become our desires. His glory becomes our delight. His promises become our source of peace and comfort. What a blessing to have brothers and sisters in Christ to walk this journey together.
The week of 4/12/08 – 4/19/08, We were blessed to meet face to face and fellowship together for a whole week.
That sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.
