Sunday Extra: Safety, Sustenance, and Freedom
For this Sunday Extra, Pastor Daniel teaches from John 10. Jesus used the familiar image of sheep to teach the first of a series of “I Am” statements in John. “I Am the Gate.” The shepherd knows the names of each of his sheep, and the sheep know the voice of their shepherd. Listen for His voice. It still tells you about safety, sustenance, and freedom.
In 2020, Leighton Ford Ministries guided a Discovery Process for the Whitworth Church. This process typically involves listening to the voice of the congregation with a survey, listening to individuals in focus groups, then giving valuable insights and feedback to the church leadership.
