Have You Ever Been 'Thunderstruck'?



Good morning, World! This week, the people of St. Stephen UMC are pondering how often we are THUNDERSTRUCK by God in our daily lives. Being "thunderstruck' is one of the "Gifts of the Dark Wood," the book by Eric Elnes that we're using as our Lent 2016 observance.

As the Rev. Nancy DeStefano told us in her Feb. 28 sermon, you could be THUNDERSTRUCK by some major life event, or a small revelation, or simply an intense experience of feeling alive.

Whatever your THUNDERSTRUCK experience, share it here in Comments or on our Facebook page. Sharing our "Gifts of the Dark Wood" with each other helps us all find our spiritual paths as we journey on toward Easter.
