Upcoming EventsNOVEMBER 2015
November 25: Diamond DNA of Businesses
Location: Centurion, South Africa
November 28: WALKING IN LEGITIMACY
Location: Midrand, Gauteng, South Africa
Office of PersonhoodSLG is full of highly competent people who seriously lack relationships. Some of this is because we walk to a different beat than the mainstream culture, but much of it is due to lack of understanding of the offices of personhood, son/daughter and manhood or womanhood.
When you bring great value to the table but are only seen for what you do, not who you are, it is likely that you were commoditized as a child and never cycled through the normal offices.
This album is one of the most hard hitting, transformational teachings I have ever done. Whether you are a parent wanting to know how to do it right, or an adult wanting to know how to fix what went terribly wrong in your childhood, there are detailed steps available.
This album is amazing and so helpful. There is so much one doesn't even really know, or know that one is missing it. I love the story about Esther and how she lived personhood. I also appreciate what you share about you. It helps me to look into more details about my own life. ~
Listening to this set has been an intensely pleasurable experience. The way you expressed the personhood of Ruth moved me deeply. She loved Naomi because it was an expression of her personhood. That's just who she was, and no amount of exchange on the level of commodities could alter that. The exercises you presented are accessible, practical and really fun. It's only been a few days, but I've already begun noticing changes in my inner world as a result.
The overall tone of the album is a warm blend of authentic love and expectant joy, which is delightful to the palate. It reminds me of the intricacies of making bread from scratch. The simple ingredients of water, flour, sugar, oil, and yeast are mixed together, but the dense dough will never become a yummy loaf unless it's kneaded and kneaded. To me it felt like this message was captured in that coveted moment when the gluten is activated. The dough was warm and soft yet firm and elastic. Just the right texture to ensure a light, fluffy loaf. Thank you Arthur for this well crafted treasure. ~ Please note: Our shipment of "Office of Personhood" has now arrived in Australia.
Thank you for your patience!
SLG CoachingWho Do You Worship?
When God sent Moses to extract the Hebrews from Egypt, there were two problems. The Hebrews did not know God and Pharaoh did not know God.
This was no particular concern for God. He is an old hand at marketing, so He set about building His brand in Egypt. While our Sunday School stories focus on God's branding program in Egypt, it really was the least important part.
God's highest priority was to teach His people who He was so they could worship Him with genuine passion. That is why His branding project with the Hebrews was so much more complex than what He did for the Egyptians and their gods.
We at SLG have a long-term program in place to break theEgyptian curses off our SLG tribe. The current phase has to do with learning who God is, so we can worship Him the way He desires. So far, the favorite revelation of the nature of God is The God Who Rescues Broken World Changers.
Among the Gum Trees
Please give a warm welcome to Sonia, a special visitor to sit and chat with us 'among the gum trees'.
HEY SONIA, CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF?
Hello Everyone, I'm Sonia Brownless, a First Nation's Cree from Canada. I am a lover of Jesus discovering who I am as Abba's daughter. I am passionate about spirit nurture, horses and my family.
HOW DID YOU INITIALLY CONNECT WITH SLG?
I discovered SLG 7 years ago through hearing Rob Mazza mention Arthur Burk's name. The rest is a history of diving deep into the treasure of SLG's abundantly rich buffet of albums :)
I was hurting and in much pain at the time from my marriage and family circumstances. I was looking for help for family members but I soon chose to dig deep into the inner healing and deliverance tools that SLG offered.
Arthur connected me with a prayer minister who ministered with the Father's heart to me. We put SLG tools for the redemptive gifts and spirit nurture to really good use for several years.
God has performed some amazing restoration work in my spirit, soul, mind, generational line and marriage. I am in awe truly of how God heals and restores design, gifts and birthrights.
I love our SLG tribe and enjoy being life-giving to our tribe and sharing in our community :)
DO YOU KNOW YOU’RE REDEMPTIVE GIFT AND IF SO CAN YOU GIVE US A GLIMPSE OF HOW THAT PLAYS OUT ON ANY GIVEN DAY?
I thought I was a Mercy for the first few years but God was persistent in healing me and restoring me to my true RG Prophet design. I was very stubborn and resisted him! I am now content to unpack even more of my design.
On a daily basis, I parent by design each of my children. I homeschool 3 children currently and have graduated one daughter. I very much enjoy partnering with Father as he sets each of us up in different ways to receive some fathering from him or unpack a unique bit of themselves.
WHAT TEACHING HAS MADE THE MOST IMPACT IN YOUR LIFE AND HOW?
I love many of the SLG teachings however Developing Your Spirit has had the deepest impact in me. Leaning to nurturing my spirit has paid the greatest dividends in every area of my life.
My prayer minister and I used this teaching to intentionally partner with the Lord and where He wanted to heal me. I still listen to this album occasionally to do a diagnostic check on my spirit. This teaching gives a great road map with rich scripture to unpack the living treasure in the human spirit :)
I LOVE TO 'DISCOVER A 'BIGGER VIEW OF GOD'. CAN YOU SHARE A GOD-SIGHTING, STORY OR POEM TO HELP US ALL DO THAT?
I recently attended a Fatherheart conference in Calgary, Alberta. The speakers were James and Denise Jordan with Dennis and Katie Wiedrick.
As they shared the heart of the Father and the message of how Father loves us, I was baptized again with love. The humility and richness of love was flowing so strong from them. I am in awe of the reparenting that Father has done in my life.
I sat there as it dawned on me that growing in sonship has been the primary journey with SLG. I've been reconciled with our heavenly father, with our King and with Holy Spirit even as I have been reconciled with my own treasure, personhood and dignity.
BirthrightI followed along in this series, beginning with a discussion of what a birthright is. The biblical stories that followed were an real eye opener that showed me how I can lose or damage my birthright.
I quickly learned that although everyone has a birthright there are only a few that knew what steps to take to proceed toward it. That saddened me. At one point I wanted to scream, ‘Jacob, get your act together!’
But it was not all sad news. There are the strategies given, the how to’s of repairing the damage and the how to’s of making strategic choices in your own life so that you will be continually moving toward the goal of possessing your birthright.
