How can we build personal, private practices that deepen our awareness of the presence of God in our lives? In this talk we look at practical steps we can take to experience, encounter and embrace more of God in the everyday moments of our lives.
There is more of God to embrace, more of God to experience, more of God to encounter. But whether we embrace MORE of God is up to us. What can we learn some ‘stories of old’ in scripture that show us how to connect with MORE of God – and what will happen when we do?
