The name Dwelling 1:14 references John 1:14 and the incarnational, missional nature both of Jesus and of those who would follow Him into the world.

“Most of us know or have a sense that “things aren’t working the way they used to work” in our congregations. And, most of us are experimenting and pressing on new things...Greg understands what’s going on and can help build a “sending” culture in your congregation.”
“If God has convinced you that the goal of your leadership in the church is not to get the community to come to church, but to get the church into the community; and, if you realize that you will need some encouragement and guidance from a brother who has become convinced of that himself and has navigated those waters in his own life and leadership, then Greg Finke and Dwelling 1:14 will be just what you need.”
There are so many traditions it makes my head spin. Most are good and a few are exceptional. However, it seems to me many of us attempt to observe so many of these traditions that we become stressed, exhausted, and hydroplane from one observance to the next.

Today we have Part 2 of a three part blog series on what a disciple is, what a disciple does and how to disciple people. Of course, when Jesus commissioned the disciples to make disciples he did not say, "Go and make up a process for discipling people that seems good to you." He said, "Go and in the way you have been discipled, disciple others." Since Jesus set the pattern for how we are to disciple people, in this blog we are going to the Gospels...
“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…,” Matthew 28:16-19.
Lately, as I have read these familiar words from Matthew 28, my eye has gone to the first few words. Jesus is talking to only eleven disciples. Eleven. That’s not very many. There...
