Road trip ...

Monday will find Quarry at Janelle's place in Stoney Creek! Les will be leading us in an exploration of chapter two ...

To Janelle's (from Burlington):
Take the QEW toward Niagara and take the Fruitland Road exit.
Turn right onto Fruitland Road.
Go through the stoplight at the Service Road.
Turn left at the next set of lights onto Barton Street (Chandlier Place on corner).
Follow Barton Street past Glover Golf & McNeilly Road.
On the right side, Janelle's house is the last one before the field:

1038 Barton Street

Perhaps some might want to carpool from Burlington?

Remember ... 6:30 for dinner!
7:30 chapter two ...

Practicing God's presence ...

God is always present and active in my life, whether or not I see God.

Coming to recognize and experience God's presence
is learned behaviour; I can cultivate it.

My task is to meet God in this moment

I am always tempted to live "outside" this moment.
When I do that, I lose my sense of God's presence.

Sometimes God seems far away for reasons I do not understand.
Those moments, too, are opportunities to learn.

Whenever I fail, I can always start again right away.

No one knows the full extent to which a human being
can experience God's presence.

My desire for God ebbs and flows, but God's desire for me is constant.

Every thought carries a "spiritual charge" that moves me a
little closer to or a little farther from God.

Every aspect of my life -- work, relationships, hobbies, errands -- is
of immense and genuine interest to God.

My path to experiencing God's presence will not look quite like anyone else's.

Straining and trying too hard do not help.

Week One

This Monday we'll be kicking off "God is Closer than you Think", exploring God's promise to us and the experience of Jacob. We'll use chapter one (and two?) as our guide. Please don't stay away if you haven't started reading yet -- the book will only serve as a loose guide to a larger discussion!

This summer we'll be sharing leadership each week Quarry, so that each of us might have an opportunity to guide discussion one evening. We have some leadership resources for the book (discussion ideas, sample questions, etc.) Please think about which chapter/topic you would be interested in facilitating over the next few months & let me know ...

This week we'll be gathering at Dave & Alicia's
623 Thornwood Avenue
6:30 dinner
7:30 worship, discussion, prayer ...

We were a small group last week, so still do not have all of dinner accounted for this week -- please let me know if you can bring salad, veggie dish, bread or beverages. Thanks!

Book Search ...

Good news! I've tracked down a number of copies of God is Closer than you Think, and am now waiting on just one more to arrive. So, if you want to get started on the reading, now's your chance! We got a bit of a deal, so the cost on these is $15.50.

I'll bring them to Quarry on Monday, but if you'd like to get started before then, just let me know ... drop by or give me a call.
