Being Born Again - Spiritual Pregnancy and Birth
Type of Event: Worship Service: Informal Family
Date Recorded: March 19, 2017
Location: Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall
Topics: Regeneration / Spiritual Growth
Becoming a better person - and eventually an angel - is a process called “regeneration,” meaning: “re-birth.” In John chapter 3, Nicodemus was surprised and incredulous when Jesus told him this. Sometimes we can be surprised and incredulous about this process too. What do pregnancy, morning sickness, braxton hicks, transition, labor pains, contractions, and birth have to do with our spiritual growth? What does it mean to take our first spiritual breath as a spiritual newborn?
