Be Still

Life is full of movement. Movement is not a bad thing. If we are moving, we are living. We are making progress. Movement, though, is also exhausting—both physically and mentally. But sometimes we wonder, “Am I really getting anywhere?”

God says, "Be still." The scriptures place an importance on intentional time taken to be still before God. It’s in those times that we get to know God and we remember who should be directing our movement. It’s hard to stop, but its necessary if we hope to connect with God and if we hope to be moved where God want us to go. 

Lent, the 40-day season before Easter, is about taking time to “Be Still,” to pray, read the Bible, think, reflect, listen, and to be given hope and power to move in the direction that God intends. Join us each week for “Be Still,” our Lent Worship Series, focused simply on slowing down so there can be lasting change.
