What's That Noise?

One of the offerings from the Listening for God Ministry is a published book available in paperback, digital, and audio form: What's That Noise?  Listening for God in a Busy World. 

God spoke to Moses, Paul, and other spiritual giants of the Bible.  Does he also speak to us? Is it possible he's communicating to us, but we don't recognize his voice?

Theodore J. Sanborn addresses this theme in his inaugaural book. Sanborn draws us into the topic with thoughtful questions regarding our own beliefs and applies his own experiences to craft a compelling case for the reality of God's desire to converse with us.  Hear his story and consider how God might be trying to communicate with you

"Sanborn reminds us again and again in his book through the narrative of scripture and the illustrations of his own life that hearing the voice of our Heavenly Father is supposed to be the normative experience for all of God’s children. Not something mystical, not something esoteric, not something reserved for the spiritual elite," Rev. Gregory Michael Doll, Associate Pastor, Noroton Presbyterian Church, Darien, CT

You can purchase the book at Barrett Bookstore in Darien, CT, Amazon.com, directly from the publisher, or other channels (ISBN-13: 978-1616636180):
