Sometimes the Christian life feels disjointed. I know I can go hours (or days?) without thinking about God and who I am in Christ. Engaging contemplative practices out of a desire to connect with God can help us feel like our faith is more integrated with the other areas of our life. My approach to the contemplative life is rooted in God’s grace. Any movement I make towards God is actually God’s movement towards me. He is always the initiator. Any desire I have for more of Him is because of His lavish grace and mercy.
I’m launching a monthly Soul Storying email newsletter in December to explore spiritual direction, spiritual formation, contemplative practices, and our soul stories in light of God’s grace. AND now through January 5, 2019, all subscribers will receive Nine Ideas for Christmastide which is a great resource if you want opportunities to celebrate all 12 Days of Christmas instead of feeling like THE BIG DAY passed you by with little-to-no recognition of the magnitude of this celebratory season. Just sign up below and let me know what you think when you get a chance.
