Living in the Presence of God
The INVITE that I would like to offer you today is this: let’s take some time to simply “BE.” To discover, once again, that silence and moments of prayer are really all about “looking at God looking at us.”
As we try to quiet our busy lives and rest in the heart of our God this morning, we will hear God’s gentle invite “to come home”…“to dive deeper still”…and, finally…“to pour out our hearts, our souls”…to the One who loves us more than we can ever imagine!
Join us on Saturday, March 19th from 8:30am -12:30pm. Continental Breakfast served 8:30-9:00am. The morning of reflection will begin at 9:00am.
