Dwelling in the World

Looking for people God places on our path –

Learn how to do it together in our workshop.            

Testimonial from one workshop host

We want to notice God at work in the world.  We also want to meet the people God is sending us to – and people God sends to us. God is up to something when we meet strangers and even encounter people we may already know a bit.

Why are we so reluctant to talk with a stranger? Is it because we don’t want to intrude on the other person? Is it because we don’t think God might want us to listen to someone new? What if we could simply listen? Listen the other person into free speech about her job or his day or her dog or what is happening in his life?

Dwelling in the World is a workshop designed for people who would like to try listening someone into free speech but might need a little support.  To learn more or schedule a workshop e-mail Dr Pat Taylor Ellison: ptellison@churchinnovations.org.
