    Still Small: Child-like Trust

    Still Small: Child-like Trust

    Still Small: Child-like Trust Culture tells us that only those who remain relentlessly driven and laser-focused achieve their dreams. We believe that we can get what we want by gripping tight to our goals and never letting go. But God beckons us into another way of being, a way that requires surrender, and a willingness to relinquish even our deepest wants and desires for the sake of what God desires for us. This is counter-intuitive, confounding even, but it is the only path toward truly discerning and doing God’s will. This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, by looking at how we learn to embrace the freedom that comes with letting go.

    Still Small: One Track Mind

    Still Small: One Track Mind

    Still Small: One Track Mind For followers of Jesus seeking to discern and do God’s will, we need to pay close attention to when, how, and how often we’re turning to our own logic, reason, and intellect to make decisions. Since God has given us this incomparable tool, we also ought to trust God to guide us in how to use it for our good and God’s glory. This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, by looking at how to use our heads in the practice of discernment.

    Still Small: Wise Council

    Still Small: Wise Council

    Still Small: Wise Council When it comes to making decisions in our own lives, it’s essential to surround ourselves with people who will listen to us, but who will also listen to God on our behalf - and then tell us the truth in love, even if it’s not what we want to hear. The same is true for being a voice in the lives of others; we need to listen well to them and to God for them, without personal agenda or ulterior motive. In the church, this is communal discernment, and it’s one of the fundamental pillars of discerning God’s presence and activity in the world. This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, exploring how we practice being a community who discerns.

    Still Small: Two Thumbs, a Drop of Water, and the Holy Spirit

    Still Small: Two Thumbs, a Drop of Water, and the Holy Spirit

    Still Small: Two Thumbs, a Drop of Water, and the Holy Spirit It’s a mind-bending mystery that the Spirit of God dwells in each of us, but this is what the life of discernment is all about - learning how to be increasingly attentive to the leading of this Wonderful Counselor in the day-to-day. This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, looking at the ways that God takes the initiative to make Himself known to us.

    Still Small: Trusting God's Goodness... Always

    Still Small: Trusting God's Goodness... Always

    Still Small: Trusting God's Goodness... Always Our capacity to seek God in seasons of fear, pain, and loss, when it’s hard to sense His goodness and love, is one of the primary ways we practice discerning God’s voice. This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, looking at how to experience our good and loving God in every circumstance.

    Still Small: Trusting God's Goodness

    Still Small: Trusting God's Goodness

    Still Small: Trusing God's Goodness Too much noise in our lives can also affect our spiritual development. When we can’t seem to hear the still, small voice of God through the cacophony and chaos of daily life, we can lose our sense of his presence and leading. We believe that Christ is alive today, and wants us to know his will and follow him - but how can we hope to follow Christ, when we don’t know where he wants to take us? This Sunday we begin a new series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, looking at how we recognize and respond to the presence, activity, and words of God in the big and small moments of life.
