Rhythms For Life

Resources that help us to grow UP to God, IN to self, WITH in community and OUT in mission: 

Podcasts/Resources mentioned during the INward sermon include Pray As You Go (website or app) and the Daily Liturgy (website or podcast). Another great resource is the Lectio 365 app.

7 Practices for the Church on Mission (which is the simplified version of his book Faithful Presence which I believe the Pastoral Team and maybe others of you read a couple of years ago) - it was mentioned in the WITHward sermon but has a lot of connection and overlap with the OUTward sermon, too!

I have quoted from this book several times and during different sermons. Mandy Smith has a lot of great things to say! Unfettered: Imagining a Childlike Faith beyond the Baggage of Western Culture

Ken Shigematsu's Survival Guide for the Soul is a wonderful resource for thinking about what human flourishing might look like for a Jesus follower.
