Practicing the Presence

In 1993 Dallas had been asked to come again to South Africa by Trevor Hudson, a young minister who had learned about Dallas in 1985. During his time there he delivered three messages. This class is comprised of those messages along with exercises to help one practice the presence of Christ in daily life. This talk is broken into four parts. We recommend that you listen to each segment and then step into the following suggested exercises before moving on to the next segment. You may want to do this at the rate of one segment, plus exercises, each day for the next four days, or you may want to move at a pace that is slower.
