How to Cultivate Communion with God

“Does the idea of communion with God draw you in or push you away? There is much in our lives that distracts and prevents us from experiencing genuine communion with God.

But the God of the Bible, this God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, is a pillar of fire and a column of smoke.”-Matt Chandler (The Explicit Gospel, 29)
