The spiritual life begins with the willingness to name our desire in Jesus’ presence. In this first of six sessions from the Sacred Rhythms Group Bible Study, Ruth Haley Barton teaches participants that your desire for God and your capacity to reach for more of God than you have right now is the deepest essence of who you are. It is one of the most powerful motivators for a life lived with intentionality and focus.
Drawing on the imagery of the natural rhythms of the created order, Sacred Rhythms explores the practices that spiritual seekers and growing disciples have used throughout history to grow closer to God. In a similar way, the disciplines of the spiritual life are the basic components of the rhythm of intimacy that feeds the soul, keeping Christians open and available to God’s surprising initiative in their lives.
In this six session DVD curriculum, designed for use with the Sacred Rhythms Participant’s Guide, Ruth Haley Barton provides guidance for you and your group in a way that links the disciplines of the Christian faith to the most compelling desires of the human soul. Each of the following sessions offers video teaching as well as specific practices that allow you to experience each discipline and incorporate it into your life.
