The 12 days of Christmas – 10

On Sunday Wyn gave us a sermon on the spiritual discipline of solitude.

I guess this is a great time of year to reflect on the fact that we can be so busy ‘celebrating’ Christmas, that we forget the heart of Christmas: Jesus, God to the rescue.

You can listen to the talk here:

Mark Driscol has written two short articles on Solitude here and here.

A book that we love in the church is ‘the life you’ve always wanted’ by John Ortberg. It has a great chapter on the spiritual discipline of slowing, which is linked to solitude. To find out a bit about that you can watch a video of about 2 minutes witch shares one of me and Wyns favourite quotes…

So, todays gift is a challenge to solitude and slowing 😉
