Christianity grew out of incredible spiritual experiences. It flourished because of people’s God-experiences, despite 300 years of oppression. Do we still nurture God-experiences in our churches, or do we look at them with suspicion? Are churches safe places to share spiritual experiences or places to hide our experiences lest we be judged? Churches grow when God is experienced in them, and shrink when God isn’t. This workshop will explore different kinds of spiritual experiences, and share how pastors and churches can understand, embrace, and nurture them.
