The rhythms of walking with Jesus

The slow walk of spiritual maturity comes with learning the rhythms of the Kingdom of God. Along the journey, the Church over the centuries has built rhythms that remind us of the deep truths of the Kingdom of God. Lent is one of those seasons and we are about to enter into this time.

Some thoughts from Eugene Peterson as we enter another pattern of the Kingdom life:

“There is a great market for religious experience in our world; there is little enthusiasm for the patient acquisition of virtue, little inclination to sign up for a long apprenticeship in what earlier generations of Christians called holiness.”
Eugene H. Peterson, A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in an Instant Society

Let us walk with a view to a long apprenticeship.
