Practicing the Presence

Our greatest desire is to know God, enjoy God forever, and in the process, to touch life at some depth.

Don Postema, Space for God.

In the Bible, God promises to be with us always – in the car, the kitchen, the shower, at work, always! But, we live in a world of business, static, hustle and chaos. How do we tune in and be receptive enough to be aware of the Divine’s ever-presence?

Just as we work to develop our artistic skills and craft, experiencing the presence of the Divine takes practice. Convergence is creating a “spiritual gym” of sorts designed to give us opportunities to “workout” together. Some are play-filled explorations of artistic practices that serve to relax the trap of compulsive busyness and drivenness. Others are designed to develop spiritual practices that help us see beauty in ordinary things and even learn to pray.

Check out our schedule of in-person and online “workouts” below.
