The path is a metaphor for our journey in Christ. There is nothing “magical” about the labyrinth. There are no tricks the walker must figure out to walk it. There is only one path. The walker sees the design laid out before her or him throughout her or his walk. Yet, there is the mystery of prayer that we somehow communicate with our creator and our creator communicates with us! The Holy Spirit’s work within us enables us to pray. The scripture says, “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8: 26 – 27)

This is a brilliant transition map from the book "Change Monster" by Jeanie Daniel Duck. We had an amazing conversation around this idea and the development of SGC today. Tuesday staff meetings are a highlight of my week! (Click the map to enlarge.)

That's what we're doing at SGC these days. We're 'going there' concerning marriage relationships and the raw truth behind the lives of our people. One of our core values at SGC is authenticity, so what you will witness here is all that and then some. Meet Ray and Micle Flora. They are professionals working in the field of health and medicine and they are loads of fun to be around. Micle is one of our amazing worship leaders with a gift from God that saw her through many dark days. Here they share their story of overcoming a nightmarish season of their life that led them to the brink of divorce. Five years later they are going on a cruise to Hawaii... to celebrate 15 years of marriage. Rough & Tumble? Yes! But worth it? Absolutely! Congratulations, y'all!
