The Videos below are for session three on 17 March.

Life can be busy. So busy that it is difficult to find space and time to pray. And when we do find the time, our minds can be so cluttered with Twitter feeds, distractions and to-do lists that the prospect of spending time in silence seems daunting.

In our hyper-stimulated world, we long to ‘practice the presence of God’ but more often than not ‘practice the presence of distraction’.

Inspired by our lent book, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, we will be running 4 evening sessions designed to explore how we can ‘practice silence’ and deepen our capacity to remain quiet in God’s presence.

 Is this for me? Whatever your spirituality or worshipping preference, chorus or choral, incense or stadium haze, hands clasped or hands aloft, the way of Jesus necessitates times of silence and solitude.

This is an opportunity to learn together, develop simple ways to help us remain in a place of stillness, and ultimately deepen our relationship with God during Lent and beyond.
