Most of us had a dream once, or maybe more than once, of how life would be for us. As children we see stories like Cinderella, Snow White, and others that depict Prince Charming coming along, the white knight saving the day or happily ever after endings that are so positive and wonderful, but life itself proves to be so much more complicated and confusing.
Circumstances send us on a roller coaster ride that often makes us want to throw up from all the motion of events. Life is a journey where detours take us into many dark places that have gremlins and ghouls hiding there that are not out for our best interests. At some point, we must come to believe that a power greater than ourselves knows this and provides a way to sanity and the ultimate happy ending.
Thus we are beginning a new series on Sunday's at ATB that is based on the book The Life You've Always Wanted by noted author John Ortberg. In it he speaks about how we can navigate this complicated journey of life by applying spiritual principles to experience the life God intended for us. In other words, a treasure map to Treasure Island. We remember that one, right? Only difference is that His treasure is worth so much more than silver and gold!
This Sunday, highly acclaimed* preacher Dusty Rush leads us to another clue of how The Practice Of Prayer brings us closer to that treasure. In most other class topics we are led closer and closer in a journey of excitement that unveils the mystery of what a good life can be and how to deal with those detours that pop up from time oi time.
Join us on Sundays at 9 AM or on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:30 PM for our 12 Step meetings where we continue to offer solutions to The Life You've Always Wanted!
Why waste all that time going the wrong way when we have the treasure map?
