CM-05 From Gospel to Glory: The Pastor and the Pursuit of Godly Virtue
These sessions will focus on the pastor’s vital role in pursuing and promoting godly virtue in the lives of the people of God. C.S. Lewis wrote that “The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbour’s glory should be laid daily on my back.” Together, we will consider how to help God’s people to increasingly share in His glory as those who are on the journey ourselves. In particular, we will be reflecting upon the pastoral example found in the New Testament epistle of 2 Peter. This seminar will be a time for learning, praying, and encouraging one another in our high calling to love and to serve His church.
