‘Consider the wild flowers, look how they grow: slowing down and our internal noise’. Life is busy, and there is little time to put on the brakes and slow down. When we do have 5 minutes or half and hour, we often tend to worry; what’s next on the agenda or where’s the next meal coming from. Perhaps keeping busy leaves us with less time to worry? Kirsty and Andrew look at Luke 12v27 and give some practical guidance on how we can put the brakes on. We discover that slowing down can bring us into the presence of God, where we can experience a sense of freedom. Following the talk we hear from a few people within CCE sharing what helps them to slow down and be present to the presence of God.
Here is the link to a range of contemplative practices that were mentioned during this talk along with a list of selected websites and books.
