“Where are you?” asked God in Eden. What is our response to His question? Do we hide like Adam and Eve, or do we reply, “Hineni” (meaning “Here I am”)? Sometimes we are the ones asking God, “Where are you?” Through silence and creative forms of prayer and reflection, we will spend time becoming present to God and letting ourselves be seen by Him. We will look at some transformative Hineni turning points in the Bible and explore both the question and the response in our own lives, so that we can follow Jesus with renewed trust and devotion.
