Intimacy with God. . .

Knowing, Following and Loving Jesus

In each session Kathy Crosby will do some teaching and then lead us through one or more (gentle) ways of praying and/or reading scripture that facilitate a personal encounter with the Risen Jesus. The general idea is that in the same way we experience intimacy with another person (whether it's a spouse, a child, a parent, or a good friend) is through looking into their face, listening to their voice, watching them work with their hands/touching their hands, and knowing them heart-to-heart. By the Spirit working in us and through the Word, we can do the same with Jesus.

Matthew 11:28-30 in The Message - “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? COME TO ME. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
