Being Present to God’s Abiding Presence

Hey friends,

I spent last week with a bunch of people engaged in Christian camping ministry. If you know me, you know that I LOVE camp. We had one session where we broke up into small groups and talked about ways we experience God’s abiding presence in our lives. I got some really good feedback on the exercise, so I thought I’d share it with you.

Disclaimer: time in nature is one way many people experience the abiding presence of God, but since I figured that would be the default for most camp professionals, I wanted them to think about other ways they experience God.

What are things you do to help you be present to the presence of God?
