New Study “Life Without Lack”

Date & Time
Aug 6 - Aug 27
6:30 PM

Sanibel Community Church’s newest Bible study, “Life Without Lack” by Dallas Willard will be offered on Monday evenings, August 6 through 27, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.  The study will be led by Pastor Doug Hummer and Pastor Shelton Gwaltney.  How do we live so that we “shall not want?”  Exploring Psalm 23, Willard uncovers the secret of a life of contentment, peace, and security by demonstrating how to practice living in “God’s presence and becoming utterly caught up in His abundant generosity.”

“Pause for a moment and ask yourself what your life would be like if it were completely without fear? If you did not fear death. If you did not fear life and what it might bring. If you did not fear any man, or woman, or any living creature. Would you live differently?

In this unique work of never-before-published teaching, Dallas Willard revolutionizes our understanding of Psalm 23 by taking this comfortably familiar passage and revealing its extraordinary promises: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want…. I will fear no evil.”  The psalmist claims to live without any need and without any fear.  How is that possible?

  Written with Willard’s characteristic gentle wisdom, Life Without Lack reveals the secret to enjoying God’s presence and becoming utterly caught up in His abundant generosity.  The more we practice living in His presence, the more we experience the peace and freedom from worry that is promised in the psalm. Based on a series of talks by the late author, … Life Without Lack will forever change the way you understand and apply the most well-known passage in all of Scripture.” (Credit: Dallas Willard Publications website for quote.)
