A Note

My apologies for not getting anything posted last week or this week.  I have entered a season of increased busyness and probably won’t be able to post again until the start of next year.  I hope that this year’s Advent proves to be both insightful and a season of growth for you.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

… However, to whet your interest, there will be a new series forthcoming about heroes and villains who you may or may not be familiar with.  It will take a look what we can glean from their heroics or villainy that can help us in our walk.


Being Alone With God – Introduction

One practice that Christians sometimes engage in is retreating with God or, as it is also called, “wilderness time”.  The Biblical precedent for this comes from examples such as Elijah who were called into the wilderness by God in order to be close to and formed by Him.  Often, discussion of these retreats involves a literal journey into a pristine wilderness setting.  While it may sometimes be the case that we go into a literal wilderness, it is by no means necessary that we do so in order to seek God.  At its core, wilderness time is intentionally being alone with God.  Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to unpack this definition which I have offered in the hope that it encourages you to venture out and seek God the wilderness, be it a remote cabin or a cozy corner of an apartment.
