On April 22, 2017, St. John hosted an Outreach training event called God Space: Where Spiritual Conversations Happen Naturally, based on the book by the same name.
Kathy Wendt shares her experience,
I truly enjoyed the training session led by Pastor Mike and Sara Borgstede on Saturday, April 22. The time went by very quickly and who doesn’t like delicious quiche, fruit, and chocolate chunk cookies. But just when I thought I was safe in my own little comfort zone, my wanton spirit was consumed by God’s space.
We took a look at how welcoming or judgmental we are as a church body. Especially insightful were questions we answered about our individual witness and interactions with non-believers. As a group, we exercised our legs, as well as our hearts, to see how generous (or not) we are when it comes to meeting the needs of others. By the grace of God, may we all be encouraged to turn outward rather than inward and bear fruit in His kingdom.
