Informal meditation on a short passage from the life or teachings of Jesus. We use the "lectio divina" method of reading and silent reflection, sometimes with questions for guidance, and a time of optional sharing. Our purpose is simply to spend time quietly in the presence of Jesus. No experience is necessary, and everyone is welcome!

Journey with God

  • Mekong Centre, Chiang Mai (map)

All of us have a God-given responsibility to influence others toward God’s purpose for them – whether as a leader, evangelist or facilitator of a Bible study group. In this 5-day workshop, we reflect on some deep personal questions such as "What is our motive for serving others?" and "Does our identity depend on what we do or does it rest on God?" We learn about how God develops us over time, so that we serve Him out of a Christ-likeness, from the time we are called, with the gifts He has given, and in our journey with Him.
