The Sacrament of Happy

with Lisa Harper, July 21-23, 2017

Come Early and Stay Over Opportunities

Come study God’s Word and discover an extravagant, unexpected surprise—that happiness is a gift from Him that we should unashamedly enjoy. Observe, for example, that God’s choice of wording for the first verse of the first Psalm (a word often translated as “blessed”) literally means happy—one of many biblical reasons for dismantling the old-school idea that joy, not happiness, is the more spiritual state of being. See why joy and happiness are more like fraternal twins than distant cousins; that we as Christ-followers are not called to jettison happiness—like a no-longer-needed set of spiritual floaties—as we learn to swim in the deep waters of intimacy with God. Deepen your conviction in the unmitigated goodness of your Creator-Redeemer, freeing you to feel and express genuine joy, fulfillment, and contentment, regardless of personal or global tumult.
