If we perceived reality differently, how would that affect our responses to it? If we perceive God differently, how will it change our response to God? The answers to these questions lie in our paradigms. A paradigm is simply our way of seeing reality. Kingdom Paradigms enable us to perceive reality from a Kingdom perspective.
In The Way We See, pastor, teacher, and spiritual director Tim Harben offers a unique transformational spiritual practice—Kingdom Paradigms—that not only deepens our intimacy with God but invites us to live in the present goodness of God’s Kingdom. While innovative, this practice is firmly grounded in Scripture and the historic spiritual disciplines of the Church.
King David’s depiction of a Good Shepherd in Psalm 23 is one biblical example. Perceiving God as a loving Provider, Guide, and Protector flowed from David’s own experience as a shepherd, shaping in turn his response to follow his Shepherd trustingly and obediently. The Way We See will guide you through the process of developing your own personalized Kingdom Paradigm based in your experience.
The Way We See not only lays out a compelling argument for the urgency of Christian formation for 21st century Christ-followers, but it also provides readers with the framework needed both to grow in Christ-likeness and to more deeply experience God’s Kingdom every day.
