Walking with God

What does it mean to walk with God?  To keep in step with His Spirit?  Galatians 5:25 says, “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” As disciples, we are called to walk with Jesus and that is what we want to do this fall.  We want to adopt three simple daily disciplines: Read our bibles, take prayerful walks, and journal our thoughts each day. In doing so we hope to keep more in step with the Spirit and see His spirit grow within us.  Join us as we walk with God together!
