Staying still enough to hear the still small voice…
Join us for the RUTHLESS ELIMINATION OF HURRY all-church study beginning February 26th.
Imbued with a deep sense of its value, human beings have always marked the passing of time, but we have not always been in such a hurry. What began with, “it was evening and morning the first day”, has become ever tightening news cycles, a blurring of the workday with one’s personal life, and a strong sense that our value is tied to what we are able to produce in our ever lengthening waking hours. It is high time for a change.
There are any number of signs that we weren’t meant to live this way.
As a Church we must grab a hold of the rest that is available only in Christ. We have available to us in Jesus a rhythm of the life abundant. We can mark the passing of time along with the ancients, and slow down to a healthier habit of living. We hope to put this abundant life into practice during Lent this year as we work through a book by John Mark Comer, called “The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry” as he guides us into the scriptures and a deeper sense of the sacred. Utilizing study support provided through rightnow MEDIA, and focused attention on Sunday mornings, we will follow Christ into the spiritual disciplines that He himself practiced, fully trusting that He has our best in mind. We invite each of you into this study as all members of the Vista community have a free subscription to rightnow MEDIA available to them, along with the book study guide, and can be a part of a VGroup which will intentionally work its way through the study.
