21st Century Issues: Attention Deficit Discipleship: Following Jesus for the Easily Distracted

3/2/2018

Do you want to follow Jesus but get easily sidetracked? Does your mind wander when you try to pray? Do you get frustrated because you aren't able to have "quiet times" like other Christians seem to have?

Be encouraged! You are not alone. Too often we assume that spiritual maturity is only for the people who are able to meditate for hours or memorize chapters of the Bible at a time. But if you have difficulty being still or quiet for more than two minutes, those practices might be daunting or even impossible for you!

God made you unique and He has created avenues for you to connect with Him in your own unique way. In this workshop, we will explore practical ways to focus and to engage with the Holy Spirit through developing habits and patterns that are energizing and life-giving to you. We'll learn how to lean into the distractions and find Jesus even in the midst of our most A.D.D moments! We'll bounce around and try out different practices until we find some that work for you. My desire is that you will leave encouraged, inspired and free to walk with Jesus even if your path isn't a straight line.
