We hope you don’t mind an abbreviated edition of The Feed this week as both Pastor Brent and Ryan are taking back-to-back weeks of vacation. And while thinking about it, perhaps we could all use a vacation from more articles about the election, or Covid, or all the ways 2020 has been a challenging year.
The Slow Work of God
The longer I’ve lived, the more I’ve become convinced of two important things. First, it’s truly possible for a human being to undergo genuine spiritual transformation, evidenced in tangible, positive changes in character, behaviour, and inner peace. Second, such transformation almost always happens at a pace slower than we would expect or desire.
OUR CORE VALUE: MOVEMENT
Over 5 years ago we released a message series outlining our core values at Ashworth. Movement is one of those values – one we may not have been doing a lot of in 2020, but one which we need to focus on in the coming months as we seek to grow and be fruitful.

Continued Reflection from Sunday
MESSAGE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
We hope the message from each Sunday sticks with you beyond the Sunday morning worship service. Take a moment to consider the questions below, and even better, talk to somebody (who attends the church or doesn’t) about them.
- How connected have you been to the vine in 2020? What’s keeping you from remaining?
- Where have you been fruitful in 2020?
- Continue the practice of Lectio Divina with Matthew 6:33. Read through the passage four times. Read and listen. Read and reflect. Read and respond. Read and rest.
