Recorded for the first time since March in the WHS Theater, we begin our annual series called "The Heart of theHeart", a look into each of theHeart's core values. This week, Jason begins Part 1 with a teaching on simplicity.
Let's join together in the single most unorthodox orthodox practice among the mothers and fathers of our faith that spent time in the desert. Let's sing.
And although we are not all in the same time and space together as we listen to this, we can choose to believe that somehow, we sing together.
In part 4 of a focus on Desert Practices, Jason discusses multiple layers of consideration for the purpose of intercessory prayer.
What is intercessory prayer? Why do we ask God for things? And what do we learn in the process?
Philippians 4.6,7: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
In part 3 of our focus on Desert Practices, Jason guides us through a meditation on Psalm 63.1, with an emphasis on our inner selves thirsting for the presence of the Almighty One.
Psalm 63.1 - You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
(Amplified Version of the Bible translates it as “my inner self thirsts for you”)
In Part 2 of our focus on Desert Practices, Pastor Jason English examines how monks and poets harmonize with the ancient practice of creating safe asylum cities. "Let everyone that comes be received as Christ." — The Rule of St. Benedict (6th century Italian monk)
Have you been feeling a sense of loneliness and disconnection?
In this teaching, Jason invites us into individual and communal practices and disciplines that are helpful in desert places.
Also, a celebratory update about a different church family in town that has been attempting to purchase property here in Boone.
