Vineyard Gilbert’s vision for 2020 is LOVING WELL. We can’t love well (with the unconditional love of God) without experiencing the Love of God, and beyond that comes the practicalities of addressing habits and mentalities that keep us from walking in the freedom of that Love. A big one of those areas that greatly impacts us in our ability to not only enjoy life, but also in our ability to love well is our relationship to “stuff:” the material things in our lives that compete for our attention and affection. As we take some extended time to consider this relationship, we’d like to consider how we can live more freely and generously with the resources of our time, energy, and finances.
 
We are excited to have author Joshua Becker join us for this time, as we consider what it may look like to live lives that break free from a culture of excessive consumerism and live intentionally generous lives for the Kingdom of God.
