'Drawn In: Living a Creative Life with God
 Week 2: Hovering'
Hovering is what Jesus did in the wilderness for 40 days before entering public ministry.

Hovering is that soul searching “incubation” period, often an empty place when our hearts and minds are creatively seeking a path or solution.

Both creative experts and Jesus point to the importance of taking this reflective time. 

When we allow God’s Spirit to hover over us as a patient artist, we can realize that even in our unfinished stages, we are also creating and reaching our potential. 
Scripture: Luke 4:1-13
If outdoor service is cancelled due to inclement weather, the recorded service will be available on the website and YouTube 3PM Sunday.
