THE HEAD, HEART & GUT
A RUBRIC OF YOU: THE ANCIENT ENNEAGRAM + THE MODERN WORLD

Sundays, SEPTEMBER 10TH-NOVEMBER 26TH |  9:15AM + 11AM

Ever get sucked into one of those online surveys about what color, season, or spirit animal you are?! There’s something about understanding ourselves and our identities in a new light that beckons us on a daily basis toward being more introspective. Maybe that’s why we’re often game for answering a dozen questions that might generate answers about ourselves!

There are a million personality, love language, relational identity and name meaning tests and surveys one could take, and while so many of them are helpful in the home and workplace, there is one very ancient personality rubric that has stood the test of time and can skillfully shed light on who we are... in our health and in our dysfunction.

This rubric, a conglomeration of 9 personality types, is known as THE ENNEAGRAM, and within its shapes and angles we are pretty convinced you’ll discover a deeper understanding of yourself. Our journey inward can deepen and equip our journey outward.  And knowing yourself is an important facet of knowing God. So this fall, we embark on a new teaching series called THE HEAD, THE HEART & THE GUT... A Rubric Of You: The Ancient Enneagram + The Modern World. 

This very accessible and relational series is a metaphor of the New Testament church being the body and working better together, because let’s face it... most of us live life quite unaware of who we really are and unaware of how our unique gifts and personality traps work in conjunction with others. This sort of unawareness creates hurdles and barriers relationally between ourselves, others and God.  Our hope is to equip you with this ancient-modern tool that helps us discover who we are, so we can better understand and relate to others and the Divine.

PART OF OUR HOPE IN THIS SERIES IS TO PAINT A PICTURE OF THE BODY OF CHRIST RIGHT HERE in our WATERSHED community. 

We invite you to learn more about "the body" of our community on Watershed's Enneagram profile page.
Please take the Enneagram Type Indicator and submit your personal Enneagram information so we can add your data to the page!
