Live @ Lunch Recap
People who take Living Waters often say that “Everybody in the church needs to take this.” It is especially relevant for people who have never been able to fully experience the love of God. They may understand mentally that God loves them, but they haven’t been able to experience it in their hearts.
Living Waters is an in-depth, Christ-centered program for people seeking healing in areas of relational and sexual brokenness. Living Waters addresses the reality that we are all broken in our ability to love others well. The goal of Living Waters is to lay a foundation for relational and sexual wholeness in our lives. With groups all over the world, and with nearly forty years of ministering God’s healing love, the Living Waters program is a proven path of healing.
Living Waters is particularly relevant to those who struggle with homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, the effects of sexual abuse, codependency, self-hatred, or the inability to love others well. Thankfully, Christ’s capacity to touch and restore us at deep levels of shame and brokenness extends to all of us, regardless of the specifics of our issue.
Through the worship, teaching, prayer and small groups of Living Waters we learn about:
The strength of God’s love for us and how Jesus is central to our hope for wholeness
The depth of our brokenness and our profound need for Him.
The power of the His cross to restore our souls, sexuality and relationships
Our place in the church in loving others honorably
Living Waters is a 20-lesson program taught in a closed-group format. The leaders have been trained and a confidential policy is in place to help ensure trust and safety in the group. Each meeting includes:
WORSHIP – We focus our attention and praise on God rather than our problems.
THE WORD – Living Waters’ teachings combine psychological insights and biblical truths that help us to know God and ourselves better.
THE WORKS OF JESUS – Through healing prayer in large and small group settings, we invite the Holy Spirit to heal our various wounds. We bring our sins, as well as those committed against us, to the Lord who is faithful to set us free.
Foundational to Living Waters is the reality that God created us in His image as male and female. Therefore we value man and women working out their healing together. Great healing comes as men and women minister and receive alongside one another, thereby reflecting God’s intention and character. (Small groups are single sex, but both genders participate together in worship, teaching, and prayer in the large group.)
