Dare to Dream 1

Dare To Dream – 1


Mike Slaughter is pastor emeritus at Ginghamsburg Church, a large Methodist congregation in Ohio with worldwide influence. (Ginghamsburg.org)

In this book “Dare To Dream” he writes of dreams and visions that God offers us as guidance for our life. He speaks of our lives needing a “BHAG” … a “Big Hairy Audacious God-Purpose” and encourages us to find our own.

The first Session speaks of Jacob (Genesis 28:1-17)

Also referenced in the book is the work of the Holy Spirit in John 14:16-19a: “ And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans-- I will come to you. Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me.

Mention is made of “Thin Places” a Celtic term for those moments and places in our lives where we connect with God.
