How might God be inviting you to grow during this season?
Even in a season of staying at home more, commuting less, scaling back and slowing down - we are more tired than ever. Why? It's because we don't know how to find rest. Begin to discover how in this message!
In life, it's all too easy to get lost. If we don't develop a practice of self-reflection, who knows how off course we can become? In this message, we explore the danger of not self-reflecting, as well as how to do it well.
Silence. Solitude. Jesus needed it. And so do we. In a world that is noisy and hunting for our attention, what could the value of silence be for our lives, for our direction, and for our relationship with the God whom we meet there?
If this pandemic has taught us anything, it's that we need to learn to wait: for a cure, through a quarantine, for nice weather, for things to 'back to normal'. In our waiting, we can be discouraged and distraught...or we can learn to wait in faith - with patience and with hope. We can learn how to do that from the story of Joseph.
In a world of so much distraction, one of our biggest challenges is simply being present to the people in our lives. But isn't that what people truly need? It's something Jesus was great at, and we can learn from him.
