Anyone who follows Jesus knows that growth doesn't happen by accident. It takes intentionality. If we want to mature in our faith we need to ask ourselves, "Does how I spend my life align me with God's purposes?" We wrote Rhythms of Life to help you meaningfully answer this question.
This book/workbook will help you prayerfully reflect upon and discern your identity, spiritual gifts, talents, personality, values, and purpose. Keeping all these things in mind, you'll consider how you use your time and develop a practical approach to spiritual disciplines and personal practices. As a result, you will create your own Rhythm of Life: an intentional plan for becoming more like Jesus, day after day.
I had this continual excitement knowing that I am working, wrestling, and thinking through ideas and concepts that will have a profound impact on my life and the life of our community.
This incredible book has already impacted me deeply. I think God was trying to speak to me for a while, but it took God's words through you in this book for me to really listen.
This book is beautiful, in the physical and the philosophical sense. That texture! That type! Oooph! Forget about it! But philosophically, too, this is beautiful. It's a physical representation of goodness springing out into our world from a place beyond. It's God's truth, as received and processed by you, His people, put to page and given for His Glory. You've made something staggeringly beautiful.
The worksheets made me put my thoughts on paper, which is often harder than it seems. I learned some things about myself and my walk with God that I wasn't anticipating learning! It was very enriching. I left that day having deepened my understanding of what it means to walk with God, and with some questions to take to Him and keep mulling over.
I like that the book is not meant as a self-help book per se but a God-help book. It's caring in a very meaningful way.
Rhythms of Life is meant to be a journey done with other people. You can receive this book by registering for a retreat. These day-and-a-half retreats take place on a Sunday afternoon and then the following Saturday.
