“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

(Matthew 11:28-30, The Message) 

Does this invitation from Jesus resonate with you? Is there a desire within you for a life of freedom, abundance, and unforced rhythms of grace? On November 16, 2019, The Practice co-hosted a one-day conference with Renovaré. Carolyn Arends and Chris Hall helped us explore the truths and practices that help us keep company with Jesus and live the unforced rhythms of grace through four critical questions:

– What is my picture of God?
– What is my picture of the gospel?
– What is my picture of self?
– What is spiritual formation?
