  38. 38. “Jesus comes right to your seat and says, “I have a word for you. I know your whole life story. I know every skeleton in your closet.

Right now I know your shallow faith, your feeble prayer life, your inconsistent discipleship and my word is this, ‘I dare you to trust that I love you just as you are and not as you should be because you’re never going to be as you should be.’” Brennan Manning http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQi_IDV2bgM

Launching a Triad-based system of growing disciples
  77. 77. Just wanted to tell you that I have started several groups using the Discipleship Essentials books. It took me a while to decide to pull the trigger on something with such a commitment attached to it. But I have 3 groups I am leading. Two have 3 other guys in it (which feels like the perfect size) and the other has 2. I can't tell you how excited I am about this and they are. In one of the groups, the guys are almost giddy with their excitement about this sharing and growth opportunity. In all of them it appears to be, after 3-6 weeks (some groups started earlier than others), one of the most important things I am doing. I am certainly gaining a great deal from this method of making disciples with a deep conviction and commitment. And they are very moved by the experience so far. I am also excited about the possibilities for the next permutation, when they start to lead others. Bob Bohl Central Presbyterian Church, Athens, GA
