R & R – Part 3

As we continue to explore Jubilee we discuss – Rest. How do rest and faith go hand in hand? Practicing rest is intended to strengthen and deepen our faith. Oftentimes it is in the quiet moments when we eliminate distractions and quiet our minds God speaks most clearly (not audibly, but we will talk about…

R & R – Part 2

As we continue to explore Jubilee we discuss – Rest. What is rest and what does it look like in our daily life?

Have you ever had a moment that spoke deeply to you?  It may be a simple moment.  While doing something yourself or observing something or someone else.  A teachable moment.  I had one such moment this morning. I went for an early morning bike ride with my boys.  My oldest son led us to some…

Chasing Joy

This year I have been chasing joy both literally and figuratively by making time for what I enjoy and love – running.  Running is purely “me time.”  Solitude.  A time I can clear my mind, think, pray, listen to music, or a podcast.     I quickly fall into the cadence of my breath and steps.…
