“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” – Mark 1:35
Jesus regularly set apart time for prayer and personal communion with the Father. It was his lifeline for his work and life.
Many of us desire to spend more time with God. But we may not stop to realize that—staggeringly—the reverse is also true:
God deeply desires to spend time with us.
In our non-stop, frenetic culture, this can be a very challenging thing to do. We have so many responsibilities and distractions constantly demanding our attention, it is often hard to find the time.
As a church that has been profoundly shaped by the Contemplative Tradition, we have discovered that God graciously enters into the space we give to him. And, we love helping others learn how to make room for the Lord in their lives through silence, solitude, and prayer.
