Through this season of dealing with the coronavirus crisis in our country, we’ll be posting resources every Sunday online for you, your family, and friends to stay connected in worship in our community.
Read This Week’s Scripture: Luke 8:22-25

Field Guide For Troubled Times: God In The Chaos
- In the biblical narrative – the sea represents the while, uncontrollable chaos of our world. As you look within yourself, in what ways are you experiencing chaos? How is it impacting your spiritual health?
- One of the most important things we can learn in this season is seeing God in the places we don’t want to be. In the last week, where have you seen God’s presence and work surprise you in unexpected ways?
- We’re all experiencing difficult circumstances right now. How would you describe the difference between our circumstances being the lens through which we see our faith… and our faith being the lens through which we see our circumstances?
- The most important spiritual practice in the midst of crisis is learning to discern the voice of God – but this is hard when we’re bombarded by the voices all around us clamoring for our attention. What are some of the voices that you need to “turn down” in order to better hear from God?
Discerning God’s Voice. Each week in this series, we’re going to push you towards tangible, repeatable practices that help you follow Jesus in troubled times. This week is all about hearing the voice of God, so we have two challenges for you this week.
Find a Place.
In your home or surrounding area, find a spot that you can set apart as a space to spend time listening to God every day.
