Day of Seeking God

Almost fifty of us gathered at the Crestview Presbyterian Church in West Chester, Ohio just north of Cincinnati on March 15 for a time of Seeking God's voice. In light of the statement by Jesus that, "My sheep know my voice..." we decided to work on doing just that.

John 10:1 "I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. 3 The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice." 6 Jesus used this figure of speech, but they did not understand what he was telling them.

Maybe we are like the Disciples and are confused by this saying. But, we decided to try it out. And we did. Here are a few photos of the church and the day.

Gary, this was a great time together, and I got several significant takeaways from the training. The music by Rodney and Dawn was great - really helped to focus us on the topic at hand. We also meet some great new friends in Christ, and learned thinks about old friends that I didn't know. Really int the soaking prayer thing this week

Thanks for the update, William. I thought the worship was great. Some of the best in a long time. It takes me about 20 minutes of worship to get past the static in my mind.

If it comes to mind, include our ministry in your "Soaking Prayers". We are launching out to facilitate the inner growth of Seasoned Believers and Seasoned Churches.
