Tintern Discernment Challenge - On Sunday Apr 23, during adult class we read from Acts 8:26-35 and discussed the practice of listening to God. Our challenge for the next few weeks is considering the questions: 
  • What are we hearing from God? 
  • What events or words are catching our "spiritual" attention? 
  • Where might we see God at work in our world? 
  • Where might we see God at work in our local community? 
We encourage you to consider these questions over the next few weeks. We'll have a chance in May to talk about this together.
