Sept. 24 Gathering: Spiritual Gifts, Personality Types, Call, and Vocation

Hands providing light

Most everyone who’s been around church for any period of time has probably been exposed to the idea of “spiritual gifts,” mostly rooted in 1 Cor. 12. We have classes, retreats, tests, surveys, assessments, and all manner of “discovering” our gifts and learning what they mean.

Sometimes we go a little deeper and talk about personality types. Whether it’s our Myers-Briggs score, Enneagram number, or some other measurement, we seem fascinated with these tools that tell us more about who we are.

Often, these tools are used for little more than figuring out what committee at church we should be serving on. But what if they can unlock something more powerful?

This Sunday at New Wineskins, we’ll talk about how our unique giftedness and personalities can intersect with our talents and passions for the good not just of our individual churches, but our communities and the world. We’ll talk about how those things connect with our sense of calling, and how vocation fits into the mix.

You won’t want to miss this fascinating look into who–and how–we’re made to be!

Join us Sunday, Sept. 24, in the 167 Side Room of the  Marietta Brewing Company to join in the conversation!

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
