We are in a series right now where we are talking about our core values as a church. In our last episode we talked about the value of discipleship.

Today we’re talking about another one of our core values as a church which is Spirit-sensitivity. We want to be a community that is sensitive to the movement and the leadership of the Spirit of God. Being responsive to the Holy Spirit is an idea that’s easy to agree with in theory, but it’s a whole separate thing to actually practice it.
