The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry
Part 2 - Silence & Solitude
Session 2: Silence and Solitude
Every session has a point—what each participant should walk away from the discussion knowing, feeling, and doing.
Main Idea: Practicing silence and solitude—especially when we are busy—is essential to experiencing a healthy spiritual life.
Head Change: To know that the busier we are, the more we need to withdraw to be with God.
Heart Change: To feel a desire to spend uninterrupted quiet time with God, no matter how busy we are.
Life Change: To incorporate a practice of intentional withdrawal into your weekly routine.
This study is a companion to the book The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. However, for this study, we will not be reading the book together. It would be an excellent supplement for anyone wishing to do so.
