In the Old Testament, God spoke to people from a burning bush, through a prophet, by writing on a stone tablet. Those days are over, but God still is present and communicating—just in different ways. God speaks through a sunset, a dream incorporating the flotsam and jetsam of the previous day, a detail of everyday life that keeps popping up, and perhaps even a card drawn from a tarot deck or an image at the center of a labyrinth.
The problem with Divine communication these days is not its absence but our failing to recognize it when it comes. On this first Sunday evening in Lent, Andy Crosland will help us consider ways we can open ourselves to these Divine messages that we so need to “get.”
Andy is a retired Professor of English at USC-Upstate and a graduate of the Hayden Institute for Spiritual Formation. He is a member of the S.T.A.R. Elder Council, serving as Treasurer and Newsletter Editor.
A portion of the offering collected has been designated for T.O.T.A.L. Ministries – honoring Andy for sharing his creative energy as part of the service on this evening.
