To be a loving church with a mission

Spiritual Discipline - One spiritual discipline is spending time with the Lord. "Practicing Solitude with Silence are the most important spiritual disciplines of people today in our busy noisy world. We need to unhook and get away to be alone with our Lord," says Dallas Willard. Quiet your brain, stop interuptions, not doing anything, stop obsessing, stop distractions, stop everything and go before God like Jesus would. You must teach yourself and be intentional. Enter into a time and turn off devices (phones, tv, computers, music) and be alone. Plan a good time when you are not likely to be interupted. When others aren't home or early in the morning before others are up. Late at night when others are in bed.
