Thanks for joining us today. I’m glad your listening to this episode. You’re really going to enjoy what our guest, JK Jones, has to share about what he’s learned from the Monks. He wrote a book a while back titled: What the Monks Can Teach Us. We enjoyed sharing some of the ways that monastic writings, monastic communities and monastic practices have been a source of grace and wisdom for us in our journey with Jesus. You’ll also appreciate his gracious, humble, pastoral spirit.

JK Jones is Pastor of Spiritual Formation at Eastview Church in Normal, Illinois, and one of his roles is serving as pastor to the other pastors on staff. He and his wife, Sue, have two grown children and two grandchildren. Some of his favorite things in life are time alone with the Lord, teaching others about Jesus and the Jesus-following life, time with Sue and family, good coffee, riding my motorcycle, lifting weights, walking, listening to the hearts and minds of our good ECC staff, and reading great biographies.

As a reminder, we have an online course that can help you as you make some space to be in God’s presence. Alan has created 10 meditations on various Psalms. In the course, he’ll guide you into prayer as he reads the Psalm and gives you space to live into what it says.
