God-ology - Worldview

Last night was the first in a semester-long series on the study of God. It was just an introduction, but I learned a lot in that hour or so.

What is Worldview? How is it created? What affects it? Can it be changed?

World view - your beliefs that form the lens through which you see the world
It affects everything about you...your actions, your words, your behavior, your thoughts, the way you spend money, the way you parent, the way you take care of your body...EVERYTHING about you.
It is either right or wrong. There is no gray area.

3 questions form the Core of our Worldview:
Who are we and where did we come from?
What has gone wrong with this world?
What's the solution or what can be done to fix it?

This a just a broad stroke of what we talked about last night. I am so excited to see where God takes Ray and I on this journey. I know there will be some challenges to my thinking and his and we are ready. One song kept going through my head as Pat was talking. Probably because I heard it on the radio on the way to church, but it applied very well. The song is Fade by Casting Crowns. Go listen to it and let me know how it speaks to you. It's one of my new favs.

Oh boy --- and away you will go! LOL. So glad you stopped by and found me!

Will enjoy reading yours. And the wee ones are beautiful!

Disney pop singers, LOL. Great way of putting it. Gregg is getting there but he still has a ways to travel. Trusting God though. He's far much better at it than me! :-)

It was good to talk to you last night. I also enjoyed last night and can not wait to see what God does through this study.
