    The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry (5 Days)
    Hurry doesn’t just make you weary. It is the great enemy of your spiritual life. In The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, John Mark Comer provides four down-to-earth practices for staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive: 1) Silence and solitude, 2) Sabbath, 3) simplicity, and 4) slowing. It’s the unhurried Way of Jesus.

    Spiritual Disciplines (10 Days)
    Do you feel like you are stuck? Do you feel like you've lost your passion and have become stagnant? The antidote to this sluggishness is the constant practice of spiritual disciplines. In this plan we'll talk about 9 spiritual disciplines that are meant to open the way towards spiritual maturity. We hope these basic teachings will be an encouragement and a blessing for you!

    Understanding The Sabbath (4 Days)
    Most of us are overworked and utterly exhausted, so the concept of Sabbath could not be more important. To honor the Sabbath means to “keep it holy,” and holy simply means “set apart.” Our Sabbath should look different than the other six days of our week. In this Plan, we’ll discuss what it is, what it isn’t, how it looks today, and finding our true rest in Jesus.

    BOOKS 

    The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry
    By John Mark Comer
    "Who am I becoming?"
    That was the question nagging pastor and author John Mark Comer. Outwardly, he appeared successful. But inwardly, things weren’t pretty. So he turned to a trusted mentor for guidance and heard these words: "Ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. Hurry is the great enemy of the spiritual life." It wasn’t the response he expected, but it was—and continues to be—the answer he needs.  In this book, you’ll find a fascinating roadmap to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world.

    The Life You've Always Wanted
    By John Ortberg

    This book offers modern perspectives on the ancient path of the spiritual disciplines. But it is more than just a book about things to do to be a good Christian. It's a road map toward true transformation that starts not with the individual but with the person at the journey's end--Jesus Christ.
