A sweet 1950’s film, The Next Voice You Hear, explored the ramifications of God speaking to an ordinary family through the radio. An unusual way to hear the voice of God, but the God we know through scripture and Jesus is determined to be heard. Settling into four passages of scripture that describe God speaking, we explore how we hear the voice of God, gain experience in listening and prepare ourselves to do what God is asking. Because just like the little family in an almost forgotten film, when God speaks and we listen, goodness is heard in the world.

Then a voice came:
What are you doing here?
