Jul4TueJuly 4, 2017 Pastor TerrySummer is here! Hopefully a slower pace of life for many. A time to take some vacation. A time to rest. A time to reconnect with family and friends. A time to enjoy this beautiful world we live in.I have been re-reading Mark Buchanan's excellent book entitled Spiritual Rhythm: being with Jesus every season of your soul, and he has some super thoughts.
Here are a few:
You may want to get a copy of this book and read what else Mark Buchanan has to say about summer. That may be something you want to do this summer- read more.
- "In our busyness, we often miss God: the whirlwind of our doing becomes a smoke screen for evasion."
- "Summer is a time for enjoying God and others, without reserve and without apology."
- "So, in the summer of the heart, when God seems more visible and available, learn the rhythm, the action and inaction, that avails you most of His presence."
Find a time to practice a new spiritual discipline. Get together with some friends and discuss Buchanan's book. Plan deliberate time away with family. Get outdoors more-walking, hiking, going to the beach.
Summer is a wonderful time of the year. Take advantage of it and in the process draw closer to God."Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10a)
