Time: 12:00 p.m.
Location: New Life Church, 11025 Voyager Pkwy, Colorado Springs, CO 80921
Speaker: Stephen Smith
The New Year will bring many changes for most of us and some of us need to make changes. Stephen W. Smith will guide us through the liminal spaces of being stuck; desiring a change; dying to change, having to change and making a change. Choosing the right word is key in how to reposition your life. Steve is choosing “repositioning” and not retiring and he will tell us why. For a year, Steve has been “repositioning” his own life, organization, marriage, role as a grandfater and more and this talk will be the fruit of his thinking, discernment and prayerful consideration as he works through his own internal struggles as a portal to consider your own.
What internal signals inform someone of a need to change?
What do desires have to do with transitioning to the next place or space?
How does someone begin to exit the 8-lane freeway of life to choose a more simple way to live?
How does one get clarity about when, how and what to change in one’s life and work?
These are the questions Smith will explore at the CLA Luncheon!
