Excerpt from Chapter 3 of Be Still & Listen (Book Release Date: June 12th) 05-25-2018

When I lived in Montana, some winter nights I couldn’t help myself: I had to sleep outside under the stars. I love to be in God’s creation among the elements. That’s part of the reason I got the minus-fifteen-degree sleeping bag that keeps mountaineers warm, even on frigid summits. What I love about the open sky for even just one night is the sense of freedom. The backcountry reminds us that our needs are simple. We need air, food, water, shelter, and warmth. These basics bring happiness. Everything else is not completely necessary . . . the car, the house, the cell phone, the credit card, the dishwasher . . . all dispensable.

Sometimes our over-taxed Internet-surfing minds need a place to go.

. . . We need to feel independent . . . a reminder that all we require is air, water, food. . . . We often busy our minds thinking that we need other things. But, athletes of the soul remind us that happiness and freedom are as close as our next breath. We just get distracted by the commercial hubbub and frantic pace. If we get caught up in the race for money, prestige, and who knows what, we may forget that life is, in fact, sweet as it is. And the ingredients for happiness are God-given: the crisp air we inhale, the earth’s bounty we devour, the fresh water we chug. . . .

The Way of the Wisdom Jesus: Going Beyond the Mind to the Heart of His Teaching – If you put aside what you think you know about Jesus and approach the Gospels as though for the first time, something remarkable happens: Jesus emerges as a teacher of the transformation of consciousness. In this online course, Episcopal priest, teacher, and retreat and conference leader Cynthia Bourgeault serves as a masterful guide to Jesus’s vision and to the traditional contemplative practices you can use to experience the heart of his teaching for yourself.  Based upon her book the Wisdom Jesus.

Prayer is a core Christian practice, but for many, this means “saying prayers” or asking God for various favors. In this course, we will review a variety of methods of prayer that have been used for centuries in Christianity. Whether you’re a beginner who is just learning how to pray, or a more mature Christian who has been at it awhile, this course will offer specific guidance, encouragement and support for practicing several time-tested methods of prayer.  Enjoy a review of this course by Rich.

Simply Good News is a short course based on Prof. N.T. Wright’s latest book, Simply Good News. Tom Wright will guide you through the chapters of his book through videos that suggest what some of the main points are.

You will be brought into their world in order to make more sense of what ‘good news’ means in our world.
