This calendar is the place to find fun events happening throughout Whatcom County including Bellingham, Ferndale, Lynden and beyond.
Salvation isn’t a one-time event, it’s a continuous journey to wholeness.
Dr. Brad Jersak and William Paul Young are pioneers on this journey, bringing wisdom and intellect together for a full and life-bringing picture of what it means to be human. Christ Like. Love’s kind. Whole. Connected and open-hearted.
“When the way of our being matches the truth of our being” – Wm. Paul Young
We live in a world that divides heart and mind. One in which a great chasm exists between what we think we should be and who we really are at the core – so much so that we often feel incongruent. Like we are in a constant tug-of-war between our outsides and our insides as they battle to be on the forefront. What if congruence could be found so that who we are in the world is the same as who we are at our deepest level? When our outsides match our insides and the image of Christ in us becomes the image we portray as we live our lives?
