SENDING OUT GOD'S PEOPLE
This seminar will begin with a focus on the Abrahamic blessing from Genesis 12, and will explore some of the practical ramifications of what it means for the people of God to be a blessing in the world. It will discuss corporate worship, and explain that one of the primary aims of a worship service is to send the people of God out, empowered and equipped to join God in His work. It will end with a short teaching on benedictions (blessings often given at the end of a service), and then provide an opportunity for seminar participants to write a benediction after listening to a brief, 7-minute talk.
