A Sensual Faith

A Sensual Faith“Touch God through a hug from a friend, hear God in the laughter of a child, breathe in God through the aroma of the salty sea, see God in the wings of a butterfly, taste God in the texture of bread. Simple experiential exercises and activities inspire participants to reflect on God, life, biblical passages, and themselves.”

One thought on “A Sensual Faith

    This study was done with around 14 folk in the Armadale UC in WA last Easter. It was a very easy book to work from and the result was to deepen the faith experience of all who took part. Strongly recommend to all who are looking for a study which will appeal to most people in the pew. Not directly related to Easter but worth a look at any time of the year.
