Sunday Speaker – Aug 6, 2017
Janice Butler
“The Gifts of Surrender”

Surrender can feel like an elusive place. A place that seems vague and lacking in concrete understanding. The truth is that Surrender is the most real place there is. It is that place where we align ourselves with the Divine and know that we are one. Join Janice as she explores this concept of surrender and the gifts that living a surrendered life brings.

Janice believes surrender is really about aligning ourselves with the divine. It is letting go of our will, our way of doing things, our plans and opening ourselves to something that we can’t quite see yet.

Surrender is always supported by faith. Faith that if we can just breathe and surrender to divine will we will find ourselves being carried peacefully through life blessed and lead by divine favor. Much like the wind carries the birds and the butterflies.
