We all lead very busy lives, but our busyness makes it even more necessary to spend daily time with God. Spending time in meditation and prayer each day has been shown to have real physical and psychological benefits, and helps center us, calm us, and call us forward as Christians.
This course is designed to give us a week in meditation with God — of listening as He speaks to us, of meditating on His Word (reading it and keeping it in our hearts), of talking to Him about the concerns in our lives, of thanking Him for our many blessings, for asking for forgiveness of our sins and the sins of others, and worshiping Him.
We will share several meditating techniques and resources. You’ll need a Bible, but no other books are required. Join us in this special time with God for a life-renewing experience!
