I absolutely love God sightings! In big ways and little ways. One of my favorite things about the River of Life, and its alternative style of worship, is being able to experience and share God sightings with each other in a unique setting.
In this place you don’t need to be like Zacchaeus and climb a tree to see Jesus … but you can. You don’t need to be part of an adventure gone wrong to feel God’s healing and restoration in your life … but you can. It is truly a gift to recognize these precious moments when we are able to experience a glimpse of the Divine.
In this place we can imagine what it must have felt like to gather around Jesus at the river, lake, or mountainside. By breathing in the fresh air, we imagine what the Promised Land must have seemed like to a traveling band of dust encrusted misfits.
