Shh… 3: Control - 10.25.2015

October 25, 2015

“Shh…” Quieting Yourself to Give Life a Hearing – Control: It’s a funny cycle: Worry makes us grasp for control, and our lack of control makes us worry. All of it is noise that drowns out what’s really going on in our lives. What if… we got enough control to… let go of control?!? Maybe experiencing what God meant by “Be still and know that I am God” is like loosening our fists and opening our palms upright. It’s time to talk about you and control, and to practice living in the mess it creates.

“Shh…” Quieting Yourself to Give Life a Hearing – Body

Don't just listen to this podcast, practice along with it! Many things need changing in our world, but all of it will start with us quieting ourselves enough to give life a hearing. Today Laska Nygaard and Greg Meyer will help you listen to life through the gift of your body. Yes, this is a little different than usual, but that’s good, right!? So, stretch your body, stretch your comfort zone toward your growth zone, and let that stretch your mind. Everybody needs a body. Let’s celebrate them! Glad you’re listening!

“Shh…” Quieting Yourself to Give Life a Hearing – Wait 

You probably don’t feel very spiritual when you are waiting in line, waiting for someone, waiting for the results of that test. But while waiting is so often frustrating, it is also how you experience the future unfolding. Some things take time and hurrying only makes them take longer. What if you quieted yourself so that your time wasn’t a precious commodity slipping between your fingers, but an investment in a tomorrow worth waiting for? Let’s not just talk about it, let’s practice it! Welcome.
