Listen Up

Jan 26 2020 • David Morrow, Greg Boyd, Kevin Callaghan, Osheta Moore, Paul Eddy, Sandra Unger, Shawna Boren

We believe in a God who speaks and listens; a God who is interested in conversation with us. But what about the times when he seems silent? How do we even know what his voice sounds like? And how do we break through all the static to hear him? In this series we discover the ways we can cultivate a listening life.

Sermons in this series:

Tuning In

• David Morrow

God is still speaking, offering an invitation to dialogue with him. However, this dialogue will be as unique as you as an individual are. The question for us is whether not we will take up this challenge and learn how to listen, or if we will simply go with the status quo.

Topics: Holy Spirit, Imagination, Prayer

New Normal

• Greg Boyd

This weekend we discussed how God's voice gets drowned out by the background noise of our day-to-day lives, and also about how once we tune into God's voice, we find that the kingdom of God is defined by the love of the "other."

Topics: Discipleship, Imagination

Everyday Whispers of Encouragement

• Osheta Moore

This past weekend in Osheta’s sermon, “Everyday Whispers of Encouragement” we take a deeper look at “the still, small voice” of God. We focus on the story of Elijah hearing God in a whisper, and how this passage can give us guidance today on how we can tune our ears in order to have ears to hear.

Topics: Holy Spirit, Imagination, Prayer

The Letter & the Spirit

• Greg Boyd

As we continue our Listen Up series, this week Greg discusses how being open to hearing from God through our imagination affects the quality of our faith. Faith is about getting on the inside and working out our questions once we’re in relationship. If we are expectant that our relationship with God is a two-way street and that he not only wants to hear from us, but also wants to speak with us, and we’re open to our imagination being the place that conversation happens, then we’re much more likely to be led by the Spirit in our Kingdom walk.

Topics: Faith, Imagination, Prayer, Transformation

The Sound of Silence

• Greg Boyd

For many, hearing God’s voice and sensing the Spirit’s leading is a foreign concept. This sermon addresses why we should be hearing God, and some of the major obstacles that keep us from hearing what God is saying.

Topics: Holy Spirit, Imagination, Prayer
