Images of God
May 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Book of Genesis tells us that we were created in God’s image. When you close your eyes and picture God, what do you see? Our image of God affects the way we view ourselves, the way we interact with others, and the way we see the world around us. You’re invited to spend an evening reflecting on your personal images of God and how they were shaped by your own story. The Bible contains some beautiful imagery for God, yet no single metaphor can capture all of who God is. Sheri Dursin will expand on four of these images and how they might inform and inspire our faith: God as Light, God as our Shepherd, God as our Rock, and God as Living Water. This evening retreat includes a presentation, prayer, music, time for silent reflection, and time for optional sharing.
So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
