Message Title: SELF PORTRAIT - Solitude - Growing in Grace
Scripture:    2 Peter 3:18; Mark 1:35-38
Summary:    This is the second message dealing with the implications of what happens when grace and truth has encountered a person who will be a vital part of a healthy community.  The person who is growing in grace will be marked time alone with God and engaged in spiritual practices wherein God can shape them.  D. Bonhoeffer once said: “Let him who cannot be alone beware of community... Let him who is not in community beware of being alone... Each by itself has profound perils and pitfalls. One who wants fellowship without solitude plunges into the void of words and feelings, and the one who seeks solitude without fellowship perishes in the abyss of vanity, self-infatuation and despair.”
