Spiritual Disciplines

August 2018: Sabbatical

Posted by Eric Livingston on

Heads up: this is one of the longer posts on the blog. It will take you 10 minutes to read. Do you have 10 minutes right now? If not, bookmark this page and block out 10 minutes on your calendar so you can come back to this post when you have time. I promise it is important. This summer I...

May 2018: Truth Telling

Posted by Eric Livingston on

Truth telling seems pretty easy. We learn early in life that our parents just have a sixth sense about when their children bend the truth. But the reality is, even when our intentions are good, exaggerations, gossip, and the bending of truth can very easily slip into our dialogue. In...

April 2018: Breathe

Posted by Eric Livingston on

He is risen. He is risen indeed. Today is Easter. It is the day we celebrate this unending mystery of resurrection and life. We cannot understand how life reenters the dead, but we cling to this story we have been handed and will share with our children. Although we will never fully grasp this...

January 2018: Rule of Life

Posted by Eric Livingston on

January is the season of newness. Here in the midst of the dead of winter we find new beginnings - not just because we are still marking the 12 days of Christmas, but because we flip our calendars to a new year. As we begin to count this 2018th trip around the sun since the birth of our Lord, we...

December 2017: Advent

Posted by Eric Livingston on

O Come, O Come Emmanuel. This is the season of anticipation. Despite our culture’s best effort to convince us that this time of the year is all about immediate gratification and consumerism, as believers, we know this is when we rehearse the part of God’s story where he breaks into...

November 2017: Gratitude

Posted by Eric Livingston on

This post is two days late. Why? Because it’s fall. Fall is when the pace of my own life becomes frantic. The rhythm of my ministry picks up during this season as we continue with the normal activity of the year and add on preparation for 2018. Basketball season begins which means coaching...

August 2017: Care for the Earth

Posted by Eric Livingston on

My grandparents had 40 acres they farmed when I was a kid. Some of my most favorite childhood memories are being out in the field trying to feed the cows by hand, or running full speed through the garden between the towering walls of corn rows, or climbing on the hay bales stacked in the barn. I...

June 2017: Examen

Posted by Eric Livingston on

We’ve been examined by others and evaluating results nearly our whole lives. Remember that spelling test in Kindergarten? Even before you can remember, doctors gave you close examinations to ensure you were growing and thriving. And ever since, you have taken exams throughout school and in...

April 2017: Retreat

Posted by Eric Livingston on

In movie battle scenes, when one side retreats the other side often cheers in victory. But the real purpose of retreat as a military tactic is to provide an opportunity to rest and regroup before attacking with renewed vigor. The smart tactician does not see an opponent’s retreat as a time...

February 2017: Meditation

Posted by Eric Livingston on

God is a God of words. He speaks the universe into existence. He sends his Word to the world in the incarnate presence of Jesus. He offers new, fresh truths to us today in Scripture. But the nature of words requires not only a speaker. Words are designed to be received by those who would listen...
