“Surely, God was in this place and we knew it not”. We have all experienced what it is like to not feel or know the presence of God as we live day to day; and yet sometimes we experience serendipitous moments – perhaps even seasons – where the presence of God seems palpable, and his comfort rises to meet our ache.
These “thin places” always feel like a gift given. God, in his grace, plants a dream within us – sometimes we literally need to be asleep for the dream to make it past our preconceived notions.
Throughout the Bible God speaks to people through dreams – which signal the beginning of changing times. This Advent Season, we focus on four biblical characters to whom God gave dreams of coming change – hints of the birth of Jesus. We do this in the hope of being awakened to the dream.
