Description

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE TO WALK IN THE WAY OF JESUS AS A FAMILY?

Todays families face many competing demands and challenges. How can we create a sense of home that honors the best of where we come from and embraces the emerging challenges and opportunities of life in the 21st century? It’s easy to get stuck reacting to the unhelpful patterns. Or it’s tempting to mirror the default values of safety, security, self-focus and material success that have characterized our culture. We know that simplistic, rule-based and one-size fits all approaches won’t work. Now more than ever, we need a vision for family that is creative, intentional, soulful and globally aware.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have children, hope to have children, parent solo or with a partner, your household can be a place of BELONGING, where each person feels safe, cared for and loved AND a place of BECOMING, where you help one another develop who you are for the good of the world.

Join author Mark Scndrette for this practical two-hour workshop based on his latest book, Belonging and Becoming, (coauthored with Lisa Scandrette), Together we will explore tools and practices that can help your family thrive.

$5 registration includes a complimentary copy of the book, Belonging and Becoming. READ EXCERPT

Sponsored by Havenfield Community Church

RENEW YOUR IMAGINATION FOR ALL THAT FAMILY CAN BE

"This book is a gift: intelligent and brave, prophetic and grounded. I recommend it for any parent who wants to be wiser, more soulful, and more imaginative in their parenting; which is all of us, right?" -

--Shauna Niequist, author of Present Over Perfect

"Mark and Lisa did not just write this book, but they have also lived it. And in the living of it, they make room for various expressions of the values-based, thoughtful approach to parenting that we all aspire to." -

--Nancy Ortberg, author of Looking for God

"If only one percent of our citizenry would live with the imagination and intentionality that Mark and Lisa Scandrette do, the world would be a demonstrably better place.”

—Charlie Peacock and Andi Ashworth, cofounders of Art House America
