IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU. The purpose of life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It’s far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions… the search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousands of years. That’s because we typically begin at the wrong starting point – ourselves. We ask self-centered questions like: What do I want to be? What should I do with my life? What are my goals, my dreams for my future? But focusing on ourselves will never reveal our life’s purpose. (PDL, day 1)
Join me (and our church community) as we seek the answer to life’s biggest question! We will be reading the best-selling book, The Purpose Driven Life: What On Earth Am I Here For? by Rick Warren. First published in 2002, it has sold more than 35 million copies in 70 different languages and many pastors will tell you, if you’re only going to read one book start with this one!
Pick up a copy of the book (Amazon, $10) and join us for 42 daily readings, a sermon series, teaching videos from Rick Warren, small group guides, and daily Facebook group discussions. You do not need to be a member of our church, or even live in our city, to participate! We start on Sunday, April 11th. Find more information here: https://mylhumc.net/purpose-driven/
