Sunday to Monday | He's In There


“God is in the text (Bible), it is the habitat of God.”  Walter Brueggeman

On Sunday, Pastor Dave began a new sermon series. The focus of this week was "How should the Bible be understood." 

Some thoughts and questions to get you going into the week....


·Pray that God might develop your heart to listen to the scriptures expecting to hear the voice of God.

·If God’s redemptive love could re-stitch one area of your life with hope through a biblical story what would it be?

·Try reading scripture each day this week for two minutes longer than last week. (If you did not read scripture last week, that’s two minutes per day to start with.)

·Do you agree with Dr. Walter Brueggeman that “prayer” is an opportunity for you to assault God, so God will change the drama (your life, the world)?  If you agree, take some time to pray.


We are Ready to Listen 

Healing, sovereign God,

Overmatch our resistant ears
With your transforming speech.
Penetrate our jadedness and fatigue.
Touch our yearnings by your worlds.
Through your out-loudness, draw us closer to you.
We are ready to listen.
Amen.

(Illumination / July 9, 1992)
