This weekend we had a TPCC Men’s Retreat at the church and were blessed to have as our guest speaker (by way of DVD) pastor Tim Keller. We were richly blessed by his Gospel in Life sessions on the gospel and how it is lived out in all of life — first in our hearts, then in community, and out into the world.
Session 1 opened with the theme of the city: our home now, the world that is. Session 8 closed with the theme of the eternal city: our heavenly home, the world that is to come. In between we looked at how the gospel changes our hearts (sessions 2 and 3), changes our community (sessions 4 and 5), and changes how we live in the world (sessions 6 and 7).
We also enjoyed great food, fellowship, praise and worship throughout the retreat, and we thank God for the ladies who took of their time to prepare the meals, snacks and desserts which we very much enjoyed! It was indeed a wonderful retreat for which we give God the praise and glory!! We also highly recommend the material to others (www.GospelInLife.com).
