The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry
Part 5 - Slowing
Session 5: Slowing
Every session has a point—what each participant should walk away from the discussion knowing, feeling, and doing.
Main Idea: Physically slowing down trains our souls to resist hurry and increases our capacity to be present with God and others.
Head Change: To know that our bodies are essential to who we are and physical discipline can help us connect more deeply to Jesus.
Heart Change: To feel peace in waiting while learning how to slow down.
Life Change: To incorporate focal practices that help you be present with God and those around you.
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.
