"MapQuest" Jesus

"Discernment both eludes us and surprises us because it's more about relationship than outcomes. God is not a dispatcher of answers from a faraway office, but an up-close-and-personal being who wants to converse back and forth with us. God is relentlessly relational, inviting us into an interactive life so that discernment and decision making are fleshed out within ongoing nudges within our everyday life with God.

So while people mostly want a 'MapQuest Jesus' from whom they can request directions and find that a map pops up with five 'to-do' items, Jesus will have none of this mechanical approach. We hang out with One who will not be charted or check-boxed."
- Johnson -

Cherishing that ongoing, interactive conversation ~
"He who walks with the wise grows wise..."
- Proverbs 13:20.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
