Outdoor meditative time with God (Christ based)
- Via Zoom BUT please find an outdoor space for this time.
Do you know the importance of making time and space in our lives for prayer and solitude? It’s easier said than done, especially in a world that not only accepts but values; 1) Being busy - it disguises business as being “productive”, 2) Not slowing down or resting - which is perceived as laziness, 3) Not feeling - which is viewed as “weakness” or “too emotional” 4) Self - Well, to be blunt, we live in a world that is sooo obsessed with "self"; self care, higher self, self love, etc. that we don't leave room for what GOD wants. Most of us are constantly surrounded by so much worldly stimulation; coming from new age traditions, the world wide web & substances, that we leave no room to hear from our creator. Let’s go against the grain and follow Jesus’ example in Matthew 14 instead! “After He had dismissed the crowds, He went up the mountain to pray.” Matthew 14:23. Jesus Himself saw the importance of spending time alone, outside, in the presence of His father, praying and communing with His true source of direction, wisdom, peace & love. Since we are called to be like Him, let’s decide RIGHT NOW to dedicate time to cultivating our relationship with our Lord and savior and opening ourselves up to living the life we were created for! I’ve learned from experience that God speaks the loudest in silence. Come as you are, every Saturday morning for a time of Holy Listening! Dedicating this time to stillness, quiet, breathing, praying, listening and reflecting; allowing God to speak truth into our lives, grow us, heal us and equip us! Though I will be there guiding us through prayer and meditation (Lectio Divina style), this is NOT a "group event", this is literally a time YOU are setting aside to meet with your savior. I am merely the facilitator of time. So find a quiet outdoor space and show up! I will be streaming live from outdoors, you can tune in from wherever you are in the world too, just be sure to be outdoors if possible as well. No extra "stuff" needed, bring only yourself. Feel free to roll out a mat to move around on in case you feel discomfort remaining in a single position for an extended period of time. I will be recommending a few therapeutic postures before we start, that you are welcome to get into and play around with if you become uncomfortable at any time during your quiet time. A journal might also be useful if you have one, I like to write down what I feel God is saying to me at the end of my quiet time with Him so I can refer to it later
