Worship goes deeper than hymns and recitations. Prayer is more than us talking to God. This adult group study serves as a critical reminder that prayer and worship and stewardship can be more than opportunities to connect with God; they can be encounters with God. Through DVD segments, Scripture, helpful quotations, and space for journaling you’ll take a close look at the six, basic characteristics of God and the corresponding characteristics we should develop in response. You’ll discover how your connection with God can become an encounter with God—and that’s when your life will really change.
This six-session study is designed for small group use with the Participant Book and Leader Guide. Each weekly session can be streamed or you can purchase the DVD that includes all six video sessions. In this video titled "God’s Majesty and My Reverence," Tom Berlin discusses ways in which the wonder of God can be found even in a slug. The video elicits reverence through the examination of one of God’s least likely creatures, the slug. By focusing on the purpose, function, and unique nature of the slug, reverence for the genius and creativity of its Creator is inspired. Similarly, contemplating the slug helps viewers consider how vast and great must be God’s love for them. If the caretaker of the universe was willing to invest so much thought and care to craft the existence of a slug, how deep and unending must be God’s love for us as well. This is session one of a six part series.
