Our Nooma Night for July will be taking place at Vicars on Wednesday 6th July @ 7.30pm. There will be the usual meal followed by the DVD and discussion. The DVD is entitled ‘Noise’. This month your chef de cuisine will be Nick.
This is the blurb from Rob Bell which lays out the theme of the DVD.
Why is silence so hard to deal with? Why is it so much easier for us to live our lives with a lot of things going on all the time that to just be in silence? We’re constantly surrounded with “voices” that are influencing us on how to think, feel, and behave. Movies, music, TV, Internet, cell phones, and a never-ending barrage of advertising. There’s always something going on. Always noise in our lives. But maybe there’s a connection between the amount of noise in our lives and our inability to hear God. If God sometimes feels distant to us, maybe it’s not because he’s not talking to us, but simply because we aren’t really listening.
