Ours is a hurried age in which speed is deified and waiting is demonized. Ours is a cluttered age in which noise is the norm and images constantly clamour for our attention. And in our hurried, cluttered age, faster has become synonymous with better, and experience has become a substitute for intimacy.
Welcome to The Sacred Slow: A Holy Departure from Fast Faith. Formatted as 52 experiences in unhurried honesty with God, The Sacred Slow reminds readers on every page that God never wanted to use them: He always wanted to love them. The tone is personal, practical, and penetrating. The fruit is sustainable (as opposed to event-based) nearness with God.
Experienced devotionally or in small groups, each chapter features a short but unexpected reading and two options for application: a thought focus or a heart exercise. The content is the overflow of Dr Alicia Britt Chole’s thirty-plus years as a spiritual mentor to leaders and learners.
