Fear of Stillness and the Mindful Christian

PictureWe’ve been looking at different fears we hold and putting them in line with the truth of the Gospel.  This Sunday, we’ll look at the fear of stillness.  What does it mean to be still? And why is it so hard?

In Kent’s message, he’ll mention this beautiful blog by Irene Kraegel on being a ‘Mindful Christian’.  She writes,

“Mindfulness is clear-sighted attention to the present moment, making it a great gift to the Christian believer who desires a deeper relationship with God. When we cultivate the ability to pay attention, we cultivate the ability to see God and receive his good gifts in each moment. We also cultivate the ability to be fully present to those around us.”
