Exploring the Enneagram this Lent & Easter season
Lent is a season of reflection, a time when we take stock of our lives as we prepare to follow Jesus through the end of his life to his death and resurrection. This Lent and Easter season, we’ll be doing some of this reflective work using the Enneagram, a spiritually-grounded personality-based tool. The enneagram is rooted in the belief most people’s personalities gravitate toward one of nine motivational lenses that orient their worldview.
Here’s how you can be part of the journey…What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram helps us to better understand ourselves and how we relate to others around us. Most of us originally discover the Enneagram as a typology: it draws meaningful distinctions about the nine different ways that people approach their lives and relationships. More profoundly, the Enneagram is a map of wholeness, a way of recognizing and investigating different dimensions of our inner experience. We have been taught that the quality of our life will improve primarily if our external fortunes improve. Sooner or later, however, we realize that external things, while valuable in themselves, cannot address the deep restlessness of our soul. – Don Richard Riso & Russ Hudson
Our hope for this series of study and sermons is to help us deepen our connection with ourselves, with others, and with God.
Sunday Morning Sermon Series
March 6 – May 22
10 a.m. MST
According to Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson, authors of “The Wisdom of the Enneagram,” there is an unconscious childhood message each of us received growing up. For some, the message was to trust others but not yourself. For others, the message was not to assert yourself or “get in the way.” These unconscious messages have a significant influence on how we cope with life, relate to God and others, and present ourselves to the world. This sermon series will focus on the message each Enneagram type deeply desires to hear.
