As we face the 4th wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic and, at the same time, paradoxically participate in the partial reopening of society, we experience many mixed emotions: hope, discouragement, fear, uncertainty, and exhaustion, to name a few. Our hearts long for the comfort, strength, and reassurance that can only come from God … but in times of change and adversity, He can seem far away … and yet, we sense that these hard times are also precious opportunities to grow spiritually.

Join us for this 3 hour journey, together seeking to connect with and hear from the Living God Who is both great and near, infinite and intimate, powerful and personal. What is He saying? Doing? Growing in us? Longing for us to receive?

Brief times of teaching will provide guidance, while practical exercises offer opportunities for everyday believers to experience God active in our lives. We will also have spacious times for response and discussion, supporting each other in unfolding health and well-being.

Together we will learn about times of transition (liminal space), take account of what we have lost, write a lament crying out to God, and consider together the opportunities for growth and maturing that are before us. What new and good things are being painfully birthed by God into our broken and suffering world? What are each of us being called to be? Called to do?
