If you are going to make a change in your life, you have to move from the desire to change to actually taking steps to make it happen.  Wilderness and Intervention moves us to Program.

Program is the third podcast in our five-part Lenten series on Rehab.  This week we feature Scott Hughes, Director of Adult Discipleship at Discipleship Ministries, and Joe Daniels, pastor of Emory Fellowship in Washington, DC.  Daniels is the author of Walking with Nehemiah: Your Community Is Your Congregation.

This week’s passage from the Bible is Exodus 20:1-17 where we discover the Ten Commandments can become a pattern for transformation.

This podcast is based on the worship series Rehab and Rehab: A Group Study, created by staff at Discipleship Ministries of the United Methodist Church. During each podcast you will encounter a leading edge pastor and a Discipleship Ministries staff person as they wrestle with what it means to enter into a time of spiritual, emotional, and physical change.  The five-part series is hosted by Craig Kennet Miller, author of Boomer Spirituality: Seven Values for the Second Half of Life and Director of Congregational Development.

In the New Testament, Jesus boiled down the law to its essentials: “’You shall love the Lord your God will all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as you love yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-40)
