Many people–even churchgoers–yearn for greater spiritual depth but don’t know where to find it. As people of faith, we need guides along the way who can teach us how to know and love God more fully and receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit. David F. Watson will talk about his own journey from a young seminary student without much belief in the gifts of the Spirit to a passionate advocate for the Spirit-filled life of faith. Dr. Watson is Academic Dean and Associate Professor of New Testament at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio.
