Our theme for the weekend is “Being With God: Living Attentively.” (Andrew Dyck, assistant Professor of Ministry Studies is our speaker.) Christians have often emphasized having a personal daily "Quiet Time" for reading the Bible, reflecting, and praying. A Quiet Time can, however, become so filled with activity that it no longer includes quietness for paying attention to God's still small voice. People reasonably ask whether it is possible to hear God's voice, or whether God still communicates to people.  Over the weekend, we will help set you on a path towards a conversational relationship with Jesus by means of teachings from scripture and experience, and by practicing stillness and "sacred reading" of Scripture. We will specifically be looking at:

-Listening for God in Scripture                                  

-Meeting God by Entering Scripture Imaginatively              

-Being attentive to God in silence
