RHYTHMS Practices and Opportunities


STEP INTO THE "RHYTHM OF THE WEEK" PRACTICE - WORK:


• Consider offering this prayer every morning. “Jesus, show me who I can share your love with in my work. I offer my work to you today.”

• Continue the Psalms Poetry Reading Plan to better reflect on and experience the love of God.

Daily Practices

Sit quietly for 10 minutes

“Be still and know that I am God; and I will be exalted among the nations.” Ps 46 (NIV)

It’s hard to do at first. Your mind will wander and legs grow restless. Press through. “In solitude we not only encounter God, but also our true self.” Henri Nouwen, A Spirituality of Living

Move Your Body

“A joyful heart is the health of the body.” Prov 17:22 (NIV)

Walk, dance, play, or something else. Even 10 minutes a few times a day can become a healthy practice that helps the mind, emotions and body. “One of the greatest dangers in the spiritual life is self-rejection.” Henri Nouwen, A Spirituality of Living

Take a Tech Break

“Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.” Matt 6:33 (MSG)

Let go of the devices for a set period every day. “Resting from technology…slows us down, makes space for us to examine our blind spots, and gives us greater capacity to be present to the moment right in front of us.” Rebekah Lyons, Rhythms of Renewal

 

Weekly Practices

Connect to Community

“All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.” Acts 2:42 (NLT)

Relationship to others is where we grow spiritually and develop emotionally. Check out occ.org/groups if you are needing to connect to others. “The antidote for spiritual shallowness isn’t about believing harder, it’s about going deeper.”
Rich Villoda, The Deeply Formed Life

Sabbath

“Keep the Sabbath day holy. Don’t pursue your own interests on that day, but enjoy the Sabbath and speak of it with delight as the LORD’s holy day." Isaiah 58:13 (NLT)

"Sabbath is not simply the pause that refreshes. It is the pause that transforms. Whereas Israelites are always tempted to acquisitiveness, Sabbath is an invitation to receptivity, an acknowledgment that what is needed is given and need not be seized.” Walter Brueggemann, Sabbath as Resistance
