"After Easter" From Pastor Rob
          The Challenge I set for the church before Ash Wednesday this year was to set aside 30 minute of solitude and silence every day, from Ash Wednesday right up to Easter Sunday. In that silence and solitude, tune out the noise of the world and tune in to the Holy Spirit. The world is a distracting, constant cacophony that robs us of serenity and peace. I believe God is speaking, but we miss what he says because we listen to everything but the voice of God, and he won’t compete for our attention.
          So, I proposed that we all give God all of our time, but especially 30 minutes of focused attention. To aid in this exercise, I suggested using a journal to write your thoughts. I also suggested a rotation of scripture passages: Psalm 5, Psalm 23, Psalm 51, Psalm 71, Psalm 91, Psalm 95, Lamentations 3, and Matthew 6:25-34. READ MORE
