God Is Still Whispering – Even When We Stop Listening

Posted in better disciples, NYC at 6:02 PM by alexlozada

I (still) ♥ NY — even after more than nine years serving at MCC 🙂 This weekend, Jordan and Jessica Rice of Renaissance Church (Harlem Church Plant of Orchard Group church planting) shared a little about their upcoming church plant, and a lot about God’s presence in our lives — even in the toughest times.

Jordan and Jessica’s testimony is a great match to where we are in the Story — the inter-testamental time between chapters 21 and 22,  between the Old and New Testament:

Silence, stuck-ness, Story seems over, God is absent, not hearing from God. Is He still there? Out of the silence came the birth of Jesus, God’s new good news and out of the dead space in all of our lives, Jesus can come and be born in us anew and help our lives be new — whatever our circumstances.

Because this week isn’t covered in the Story resources, here is a study guide for groups and individuals.
