Our Spiritual Transformation Journey: A 3-Night Workshop

Dec 21, 2020

As part of their Sabbaticals, Pastors Becky and Will have the opportunity to spiritual reflection and direction with Adele and Doug Calhoun, co-pastors of spiritual formation at Highrock Arlington. Adele and Doug are seasoned pastors and co-authors of Spiritual Rhythms for the Enneagram: A Handbook for Harmony and Transformation. And now the entire congregation has the opportunity to learn some of the same spiritual vocabulary, tools, and insights our lead pastors will be engaging during this time!

You are invited to praticipate in Doug and Adele's workshop: Our Spiritual Transformation Journey: Exploring the Enneagram -- a workshop spread out over 3 consecutive Monday evenings: Jan. 25th, Feb. 1st, & Feb. 8th. 

Following Jesus is all about transformation—becoming like Him and living like Him! Paul writes in Ephesians 4:22-24, "You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." Where do you seem to get stuck in that critical process of “putting off the old self” (the false self) and “putting on the new self” (the true self in Christ)? What needs transforming in you? 

The Enneagram is a personality tool that offers profound insight into our heart motivations. These correspond to attitudes and behaviors affecting our personal transformation and all our relationships. The Enneagram provides a way of seeing both the beauty of how God made you and the sin that messes up your life. 

Many have seen the Holy Spirit employ the Enneagram as an effective means for the “being made new” part of Paul’s equation. The new awareness it brings will offer ways to improve your relationship to God, your marriage, your parenting, and your work or ministry worlds. 

The workshop will be from 7 to 9pm each Monday. The 3-night workshop is both interactive and cumulative, so it is essential that you committ to attending all 3 nights. You must register in advance by clicking below, and then also pay the $20 registration fee.
