It is imperative as Jesus' followers, that we we follow Jesus into the wilderness sometimes: quieting the other voices that demand our attention, listening intently for God's gentle whisper.
But what does it mean to listen to God or to hear God's voice? That's what we will be doing during Lent: learning to discern God's voice among all the other voices. We will listen to God's voice speaking to us through Creation, through the Torah/Scriptures, through Jesus, and through community.
The 3D format will be:
- Dinner: we will share a simple supper of soup, crackers, bread, and water
- Devotion: we will be introduced to a text that helps us to hone in on God's voice, and then spend time individually listening for God's voice in that text
- Discussion: we will gather back to share how we have heard God speak...or not, and how we can encourage each other to keep listening
