John 6:26–27 (NLT): 26 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you understood the miraculous signs. 27 But don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. For God the Father has given me the seal of his approval.”
Dabar is a literary term that is associated with “dreams,” “visions,” or other mysterious forms of divine encounter. In the text, dabar was an indicator to the reader of the ways that God was at work ruling and reigning in the world. By comparison, mention of dreams vision angels or other heavenly manifestations within the biblical texts, without actual references to dabar, still served as cues the Hebraic reader to infer God’s visitation and activity by means of His dabar.”The Lost and Forgotten Gospel of the Kingdom : A Hebraic Perspective by Steven Service
This is a conversation between mothers of men (M.O.M.s) about when to let go.
A tale of two adults. We are both are adults but we have different depths of adulthood. We have raised them, but have we prepared them? We taught them right from wrong but not to be critical thinkers. “Mothers of Men” will be a conversation between M.O.M.s about the difficulties of transitioning our relationships with them from boys to men. How do you know when to help and when to to let go? As we dive deeper, we’ll also reflect on our own parental shortcomings with our sons in the hopes of evolving our relationships and helping young mothers of sons to not make the same mistakes.
This is a virtual event that will take place as a Facebook Watch Party. So save the date and invite another M.O.M.! You can view the whole discusion by following this link!
