In a time of deep division between Christians, The Colossian Way (TCW) is a small group series built on hope. The name comes from the hope-filled proclamation of Colossians 1:17: In Christ all things hold together.
Participants in The Colossian Way take up the practice of gathering together and loving God and one another while engaging challenging issues. We do this in the hope that, when done in faithful ways, we will witness the body of Christ built up.
This hope flies in the face of conventional wisdom that says talking about these topics will only drive us apart. All around us is the hopeless story of a declining and divided church that is at war with itself. As the world watches, many people shake their heads because Christians so often fail to reflect the life and teaching of Jesus.
Our ability to handle tough issues well is limited by our lack of deep formation into the character of Christ. TCW takes our division over challenging issues as an opportunity to grow deeply into the image of Jesus. We can take the next steps right here and right now, right in the middle of our divisions.
The goal of The Colossian Way is less to resolve a specific issue once and for all, and more to build a capacity for working on important questions in a way that reflects faithful obedience to Christ.
We would loveÂ to connect with you, learn about your faith community,Â and fuel your imagination about how our deepest divisions can become opportunities for spiritual growth and witness.Â Whether you engage this year or sometime in the future, now is an excellent time to learn about The Colossian Way experience and the process to enroll, be trained, and gather a group.
