12 Miracles of Spiritual Growth
A Path of Healing From the GospelsBook - 2012
Our spiritual wounds and weaknesses, E. Kent Rogers tells us, are truly blessings in disguise. They allow the Lord to enter our hearts and work through us, revealing his healing power to all.
In this practical guide to healing our inner selves, Rogers takes the reader on a journey through twelve of Jesus’s miracles from the Gospels, examining the lessons that each can teach us. From the story of the Canaanite’s daughter (healing from feelings of unworthiness) through the miracle of the resurrection of Lazarus (finding spiritual rebirth), Jesus’s miracles trace a path of spiritual growth that is as powerful today as it was during his lifetime.
Written as a guide for group sharing, this book can also be used for personal study. Each chapter concludes with a guided meditation, a summary of the lessons taught by the miracle being discussed, suggested exercises, and questions for discussion or reflection. While the book grew from the author’s experience as a Swedenborgian, it can easily be used by seekers from any faith tradition.
The stories of Jesus's healing miracles from the Gospels aren't simply a testament to his power -- they are stories that contain a deeper spiritual message, one that we can use in our daily lives to overcome feelings of unworthiness, questions about faith and our relationships with others, and even serious problems like addiction. In 12 Miracles of Spiritual Growth, E. Kent Rogers guides us through twelve of these miracles, revealing a living message within that can ultimately guide us to a state of spiritual growth and love.
