GOD ON MUTE: a new "Conversations on Prayer" community

"conversations on prayer" is a safe community of dialogue and exploration for those who don't like classes . . . and aren't too sure about prayer either.
Join us for our next "conversation" as together we explore the hard stuff and sticky questions about God and prayer — the things we bump up against in the trenches of real life.  We'll loosely base our times together on Pete Greig’s excellent book,
but owning or reading the book is not required to join the conversation, or just sit in and listen.

January 10th through February and March
3rd Hour in H-1

SACRED SPACE - Human Sex Trafficking

HUMAN SEX TRAFFICKING:  An issue globally; a reality locally.  Did you know that in the U.S., there are more "slaves" -- those held against their will for the purposes and/or profit of another -- than there were in the years preceding the civil war?  Did you know that Phoenix is called the "kidnapping capital" of the U.S., in some respects due to this very issue of human trafficking in the areas of illegal immigration, and the drug and sex trades?  The Lord is placing this issue on our hearts.
  This Sacred Space, Fri., Jan. 8, 6-10 pm, through  
·          Prayer stations
·          A group prayer time
·          The showing (in another room) of “Branded,”  a locally made dvd,we will be focusing on this heartbreaking issue, asking God to raise our awareness, ignite our prayers, and show us how He might be calling us to action.  We will also have our usual live worship and contemplative stations and atmosphere.  Let's come together to seek the Lord's justice and mercy on behalf of those trapped in bondage in our day.
