Spiritual Rhythm

As Mark writes, "I pray that this book meets you in whatever season you're in, and prepares you for whatever seasons await. I pray that it helps you find your voice, your stride, your rhythm, in season or out.

“Abide in me,” Jesus tells us, “and you will bear much fruit.” Yet too often we forget that fruit needs different seasons in order to grow. We measure our spiritual maturity by how much we do rather than how we are responding to our current spiritual season.In Spiritual Rhythm, Mark Buchanan replaces our spirituality of busyness with a spirituality of abiding. Sometimes we are busy, sometimes still, sometimes pushing with all we’ve got, sometimes waiting. This model of the spiritual life measures and produces growth by asking: Are we living in rhythm with the season we are in? With the lyrical writing for which he is known, Mark invites us to respond to every season of the heart, whether we are flourishing and fruitful, stark and dismal, or cool and windy. In comparing spiritual rhythms to the seasons of the year, he shows us what to expect from each season and how embracing the seasons causes our spiritual lives to prosper. As he draws on the powerful words of Scripture, Mark explores what activities are suitable or necessary in each season—and what activities are useless or even harmful in that season.Throughout the book, Mark weaves together stories of young and old, men and women, families, couples, and individuals who are in or have been through a particular season of the heart. As Mark writes, “I pray that this book meets you in whatever season you’re in, and prepares you for whatever seasons await. I pray that it helps you find your voice, your stride, your rhythm, in season or out. Mostly, I pray that you, with or without my help, find Christ wherever you are. And that, even more, you discover that wherever you are, he’s found you.”

On Union With God

Albert the Great was born in Swabia, the son of a military nobleman. He was a Dominican priest who taught theology in Cologne and Paris. His most distinguished student was Saint Thomas Aquinas. Albert was called "Doctor universalis" because his breadth of knowledge spanned not only philosophy and theology but all the natural sciences. He was a dedicated student of nature, and although he argued that the physical world can only be known reliably through observation and comparison, Albert distinguished between thruths, which are naturally knowable, and mysteries, which cannot be known without revelation. People can only reach God through Himself - that is, by leaving behind the entanglements of earthly things and contemplating Him exclusively. The image and reality of God's incarnation in Jesus gives human beings the opportunity to attain a more perfect knowledge God through contemplation. Albert refers to the teaching of St. Peter, "Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you."

Would Jesus Ever Become a Christian

Why, then, are people so confused as to who He is? Why are Christian churches redefining Him to suit the culture and their own preferences? This book challenges the idea of a Jesus remake.

Jesus Christ is the most written about and proclaimed figure of all of history. Why, then, are people so confused as to who He is? Why are Christian churches redefining Him to suit the culture and their own preferences? This book challenges the idea of a Jesus remake. It is the author's understanding of Him from well over sixty-five years of a personal relationship and study. It aims toward those who have given up on Jesus, because the portrayal of Him has been disfigured. Want a fresh review of the Bible's portrait of the Savior, with angles seldom considered and truth carefully examined? If you discover the right Jesus, your life might never be the same.

Do you long for a closer, deeper walk with God? Would you like to know more about what the Bible says about spiritual intimacy? We say we know about God's love in our heads, but has it really percolated through to our hearts? The Bible employs the metaphor of Christ, the Lover, and believers, his beloved.

Using Song of Songs and other Bible sources, the author explores the dynamics of our relationship. We come to understand more fully what it is for Christ to love us and for us to love him. Contents Desire - You're the one I want Show me your face Jesus is not my boyfriend, but... Is the Song of Songs really about me and Jesus?

In these four remarkable lectures, Rudolf Steiner contends that Christ has been working on humanity’s behalf since the very beginnings of its existence, long before the inception of the Christian religion. Steiner indicates how - in both the ancient Mystery schools and in the miraculous events depicted in the Old Testament - the guiding hand of Christ shaped and developed peoples’ cognition. The ultimate divine intervention took place in the incarnation of Christ in human form - God in man - which culminated in the Mystery of Golgotha. Through this mighty event, opportunity is given for every soul to develop immortal individuality and consciousness of self. Steiner clarifies the difficult concepts of sin, guilt and karma, and explains the meaning of ‘forgiveness of sins’ and ‘resurrection of the body’. Looking forward to future great periods of evolution, he speaks of the separation of humanity into two races of good and evil, and describes how Christ will continue to work in this critical time of human development./
