It’s quite simple. You long for the peace that surpasses all understanding. You long to connect authentically with God, who is waiting for you. You want to transform your life and you recognize you can’t do it alone.
During these times of fast-paced, anxious, stressful lifestyles, technology overload, draining schedules, 24/7 fear inducing news, demanding responsibilities, and critical decisions our hearts and souls long for rest and freedom, transformation and peace that only comes from an authentic relationship with God. Today’s Contemplative Christian Tradition reaches back to the original desert communities kept alive throughout the ages, making it accessible to us today. The Holy Spirit has been the Teacher and Guide for all the saints, mystics, believers and seekers through the centuries and continues to transform and form within us the essence of our Christian belief – The Deeper Connection – understood best in the words of Jesus from John 17:21-23:
“That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
The practices and spiritual disciplines of solitude, silence, service, prayer, meditation and study have always been and continue to be the foundation of the Contemplative Christian Tradition and The Deeper Connection.
