We will explore how growth in the Christian life is directly related to how well we respond to God, the first member of the Trinity, as a Father. Obstacles to growth often arise from one’s family background.
The solution is to participate in God’s family so as to experience an emotionally rich sense of being loved and to have a correspondingly deep response of gratitude.
