About the Program
This experiential presentation will look at ways in which we can better listen for the movement of the Spirit within our lives, by becoming more aware of and open to our own spiritual discernment. "Open the eyes of my heart, Lord" is a song that speaks to the ability of becoming more receptive to God in the world around us. We can "Taste and See" that the Lord is good. We can listen for the Still Small Voice and we can also learn to feel the Spirit holding us in a loving embrace.
