Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Taste and see that the Lord is good
Okay. If you have ever been to one of our seminars you already know that we emphasize right brain engagements to meet the Lord. Opening our senses to the Lord is a discipline that is full of possibilities. We begin to experience the Lord through sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste and soon find that these experiences feed not only the soul, but the mind, body and emotions as well.
Every D.Min student in the formational counseling program knows this principle all too well. The is a point in my Prophet, Priest, and Storyteller class where studnets are assigned an exercise that certainly strectches them, and for many, makes them wonder if they made a mistake in signing up for the journey.
“Go outside. God wants to speak to you today and he will do so as you observe nature through your magnifying glass” After the initial groans and moans, the students go off to fulfill the desire of their crazy professor. But they inevitably return with wonder and excitement, amazed at the voice of God spoken through the micro world of his creation.
I want to recommend a new book. Awaken Your Senses: Exercises for exploring the Wonder of God, by J.Brent Bill and Beth Booram. Beth is a friend and has attended our seminars more than once. She is a gifted and sensitive writer has produced an easily read book that will introduce even the most skeptical to an entirely new experience of God: through the senses.
