Gereja merupakan organisme yang hidup dan bukan sekedar organisasi buatan tangan manusia. Gereja harus di mulai di rumah tangga kita masing-masing dan bukan sekedar aktivitas religius belaka namun bagian kehidupan sehari-hari. Gereja harus jadi terang dan garam di luar dinding gedung gereja. Sebab gereja adalah kita

Zoe explains SASHET
What difference would it have made if your family growing up would have done this?
September 12, 2016
John is part of a five week Church 101 Course led by Kent Larson (LK10 Coordinator in Southern California). The Course teaches two "rhythms of attention"
as foundational for both family life and church life. John has
taught the first rhythm (Checking in with SASHET) to his family and his
young daughter, Zoe, clearly "gets it". (SASHET is an acronym for the six primary emotions: Sad, Angry, Scared, Happy, Excited, Tender.)
Here are some questions to ponder...
What would it have meant if your family growing up had
been a safe place for everyone to regularly name and value their
emotions? What if your parents had modeled this for you? What if they
had made time and space for you and your siblings to do this? What if
everyone in your family had learned to listen deeply when people shared
their emotions? What if husbands and wives learned to share like this
with one another?
What difference would it make if church were a place where
people regularly connected on a heart level by "checking in with
SASHET"? How would this help us obey Romans 12:15? "Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep." What
kind of community would result from doing this over time? What if
churches became what John Eldredge calls "fellowships of the heart"?
(Note: Checking in is not all there is to church but its a great
What difference would it make if church was simple enough that children (like Zoe) could fully participate?
What if these rhythms were so simple that they could be
self-propagating? Spreading from one family to another like a sort of
What if this kind of heart level communication spread to every household in America? (You
don't live in the US? We have powerful stories of these rhythms of
attention changing lives and families in Germany, Uganda, Russia,
France, Australia, Uruguay and Thailand. So far.)
Our vision is to transform American (or fill in your country) one household at a time. Interested? Here's how to engage...
