Resting Isn't As Easy As It Looks

Jul 03, 2019

If you’ve read it, you may remember that the subtitle of An Unhurried Life is “Following Jesus' Rhythms of Work and Rest.” I continue to find that both inviting and challenging. How about you? 

One of the biblical lines I unpacked in the chapter on “Rest” is Hebrews 4:9: “Make every effort to enter his rest.” From one perspective, that sentence sounds like a contradiction between two very different phrases. “Make every effort” and...

Podcast: How to Plan a Restful Vacation

Jul 01, 2019

We recently returned home from a dream 34th anniversary vacation trip to Italy and Spain. It was beautiful, we saw amazing sights, and we were gone long enough to disengage from work and to come back refreshed. But it wasn’t all perfect. Today, we thought we would share what we learned about ourselves and what a true vacation for us looks like. How can you get away, have fun, and refuel with deep rest? The answer might be different for everyone. We share what works for us.

Listening: Leisure is a Quality of Spirit

Jun 26, 2019

Listening well is becoming a precious commodity. Have you noticed the speed with which people interact? 

Picture yourself at the grocery checkout line. There is friendly banter, of course, but you must be rushed along so that the person behind you doesn’t get agitated.  

What about the fast food drive-thru? More quick talking and moving so that you can get in, out and gone.

If you are a parent, you might find yourself hurrying your children along so that you can get to...

The Wisdom of Working in Peace and Joy

Jun 19, 2019

If you’re like me, you often have a very long “to do” list going. I recently found myself looking at a list that had grown to many dozens of items. Some of them were ideas I wrote down a while back. Some were ideas others had suggested that sounded good at the time. Some related to steps of development for our many current writing and ministry projects.

Lists like that can eventually become paralyzing for me. I see what looks to me like a million things I must do, and then...

What's the Rush

Jun 12, 2019

There is a theme I’ve been noticing as I talk with people these days. It’s not new, but it is standing out a little more often in these culturally rushed and busy days of ours.

The theme is this: People tend to think there is something wrong with them if they are not progressing quickly through their current situation. Whether it’s a difficult work situation, a troubled relational issue, or a period of extended grief, many people are convinced that quickly is the only...

It's About Time

Jun 05, 2019

It’s a big week for the Unhurried Living community. We’re so glad you’re part of it. We write these weekly emails, produce our biweekly podcasts and, really, do everything else we do to help you enter into the unhurried way of life and work that Jesus invites us into.

One of the realities at the heart of this unhurried way is our very view of time itself. There are many cultural assumptions about time that we are bringing into the light and seeking to see against the...
