    • Theme: Hearing God’s Voice
      • Over the weekend we will be exploring one of the greatest truths that sets the Christian faith apart from all other world religions in a grand and audacious claim about its God and its people: that he Speaks and that we can hear him. We will indeed learn about this biblical claim but, more importantly, we will seek the living God to break through the noise of our busy lives to hear him call us each by name, so that we might answer with the greatest hearers in Scripture with the only words proper in the presence of the living God: Here am I! Send me. 
    • How to Pray
      • Please pray for God to soften hearts so that we could preempt the voice of God with the only possible precondition for truly hearing from him: a willingness to say yes! to whatever he might call us to do.
