Charles Blow, a single dad of 3 children shares his secret through the strain and drain of daily overload. He writes, “My mother taught me that you must allow yourself time to find stillness so you can be moved by it.” (Big Shoes to Fill, Reader’s Digest April 2014…first appearing in the New York Times.)
Quiet is a deep thing—a deep, deep well.
Drop the bucket.
Drop to your knees.
Drink deeply my friend, for the road before us chases the horizon.
In the days before us, Jesus invites us to quiet. Chaos uncontained, unrestrained is deafening. Its drone drowns out what moves us, and deadens us to what we hold dear.
May it find a place in your heart.
And in your home.
How do you find yourself in the Father’s presence?
First time here?
Welcome! We’re a group that gathers around the theme, “There has to be a better way.” We’re finding it in the 4-word mission statement, “Run hard. Rest well.”
- It’s a journey into the heart of God. It comes our way through an on-going exploration of four biblical rhythms that revive, replenish and restore: Sabbath Keeping, Sleep (and other simple stress-reducers), Stillness—personal retreat, and Solitude—personal retreat.
- It’s an expedition that challenges us at every turn. It convicts us in deep, tender places. It alters our priorities and plans. It’s not for the faint of heart.
- It’s adventure at its best – as we learn to run the race in a power not our own.
