The Art Of Rest

The Art Of Rest: Rest Allows Remembering

If you’re like a lot of people, you love a good celebration.  Canada Day. The 4th of July. Easter. Christmas. Your wedding anniversary. Your birthday! Those are days that we typically stop to acknowledge something important. We break from routine. We take time out. We remember.  One memory and aging expert says that when we overextend ourselves – always having too much to do – it makes it harder to concentrate and remember. What are some of the things that we can’t afford to forget… because if we do, it can change our lives? In fact, we can easily become discouraged. Getting up in the morning can get harder. You might start to wonder when was the last time you actually felt good about anything. We’ll talk about how rest allows us to remember… and get back on track.

The Art Of Rest

The Art Of Rest: Art History

We practice many things. We practice how to play the piano. We practice how to drive a car. We practice how to cook. We practice how to play a sport. When was the last time that you practiced how to rest? That almost seems contradictory. You normally practice an activity… not a supposed non-activity. We live in a fast-paced city. In a fast-paced country. In a fast-paced world. But during the month of August, in a sermon series on the Art of Rest, we are going to give ourselves permission to seek and practice rest – as a lifestyle. You might be surprised to learn just how much importance the bible places on the idea of rest… and for many good reasons. Join us each Sunday to hear more about why rest might be different from what you’re thinking it is, and more important than you’ve probably every imagined.

Summer in Psalms

Summer in Psalms: A Life of Worship

A Disney animated film Inside Out is the story of a young girl depicted through the five emotions that live inside her mind, and how each emotion fights for control over how she perceives the world around her and how they color her memories of the past.  What better time of the year than summertime to explore… our emotions.  We’ll spend the month of July in the Book of Psalms.  The Psalms were actually written to be songs, and like songs today, they contain a wide variety of emotional expression, everything from happiness and rejoicing to sorrow and despair.

Do you want to know about love? Maybe take a bit of time to detox your soul? Have you been looking at your life lately and wondering, hey, what’s in it for me these days? Well, a lot. Join us this July for a look at how the Bible actually encourages us to pour out our hearts and find what we’re really looking for.
