Solitude & Simplicity

This week we are sharing a video from a friend of ours which was made for the Winterfest conference a few years ago.  Steve’s discussion of his practice of solitude is a good introduction to this week’s Life Group discussion on the twin disciplines of Solitude & Silence.  Our lives today are filled with such hectic, fast paced and NOISY days that it is instructive to take a queue from Jesus and purposefully set aside time to simply be still, be silent and be alone… to “unplug” from the noise of our lives for a time in order to “re-plug” into God.

This week’s practice encourages just that.  We encourage you this week to explore in your small group how Jesus sets this example for us, but also how the spiritual practices of Silence & Solitude can draw you nearer to God and how you might implement it into your daily and weekly walk with God.

Simplicity

Ironic isn’t it that in a world filled with technologies designed to save us time, energy and money we are the most in debt, tired and busy people on the planet?

Christians fall prey to the lures of our cluttered and overly complicated culture of excess just like the rest of the world and we stand in desperate need of recovering this spiritual practice… the practice of Simplicity.
