A LIFE WITH GOD is a life in which the rhythms of silence and listening alternate with the rhythms of sharing and service. By praying with every part of who we are, we allow the grace that pours from the will of living water to trickle through all the aspects of our being, nourishing and hydrating that which was parched and dis-eased. So begin the adventure, start the journey, follow Jesus. Allow God to transform your mind such that everything you are and everything you encounter speak with the breath of the Spirit. Let us pray.
