Listening for God's Voice

Listening for God's Voice

Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.

So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave.
Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” - (I Kings 19:11-13)

Throughout the year, we will have various classes and speakers to help us to think and experience what God's voice sounds like.  In the Bible, God speaks in different ways - from questions to demands to stories.  Additionally, we will consider ways that we hear God's voice in more surprising places, such as literature, music, movies, and even ordinary conversations with friends and strangers.
