What You'll Learn:
Simply mentioning the name Jesus calls to mind an array of images: The kind-eyed carpenter with brown hair, selfless healer wearing a robe and sandals, humanity’s savior with hands nailed to a cross. But how often do we think of Jesus the contemplative, slipping from the chaos of the moment to pray and spend time alone with God? As our downtime goes digital and time spins more rapidly than ever before, perhaps we need a reminder of Jesus’s eremos—his “quiet place” where he sought peace and presence. Pastor of Bridgetown Church John Mark Comer looks at the days and practices of Jesus Christ to remedy the habit of hurry pushing our culture toward complacency and to refresh our spiritual lives with the authentic, restorative peace emulated in the life of Jesus.
