We all want to slow down, be more present, and be more aware of God. It sounds nice, but how do we actually shift the rhythms of our lives in a meaningful and sustainable way?
This winter, we will be reading and working through Ruth Haley Barton’s book, “Sacred Rhythms”, in our 8-week Women’s Small Group series.
January 24 - March 14
The Mill (14 Mill St)
7:00-7:20pm: Gather as large group
7:20- 9:00pm: Small Group discussion time
In the spirit of the book, we are intentionally slowing down to have time to digest the material instead of rushing to check a good book off the “read list”. This means we will cover 4 chapters of the book over 8 weeks (Desire for Jesus, Solitude, Prayer, Scripture). Each chapter takes about 20-30 minutes to read, followed by time to intentionally practice the principle in your life. In weeks 1, 3, 5, and 7 we will discuss the new chapter, and in weeks 2, 4, 6, and 8 we will discuss how it has been going, applying the topic in your life. The intention is to make space to learn about new practices and phythms AND to have space built in to bring it into your life and process in community. After this series concludes, you are welcome to continue the study on your own or continue meeting as a group!
Please order your book in your preferred format ASAP as you should read the first chapter for the first meeting. Please read the description carefully: do not order the participant’s guide. You only need the main book.
In the registration form, you'll be able to review the leader mini-bios to select a group that fits your style/stage of life. Each leader is an experienced Small Group Leader, Highrock Guide, and/or Ministry leader who has a high commitment to her own spiritual growth and to working these spiritual practices into her own life.
Space is limited, so be sure to sign up soon!
