“Abide in me,” Jesus tells us, “and you will bear much fruit.” Yet too often
we forget that fruit needs different seasons in order to grow. We measure our
spiritual maturity by how much we do rather than how we are responding to our
current spiritual season.
In Spiritual Rhythm, Mark Buchanan replaces our spirituality of busyness with
a spirituality of abiding. Sometimes we are busy, sometimes still, sometimes
pushing with all we’ve got, sometimes waiting. This model of the spiritual life
measures and produces growth by asking: Are we living in rhythm with the season
we are in?
With the lyrical writing for which he is known, Mark invites us to respond to
every season of the heart, whether we are flourishing and fruitful, stark and
dismal, or cool and windy. In comparing spiritual rhythms to the seasons of the
year, he shows us what to expect from each season and how embracing the seasons
causes our spiritual lives to prosper. Download and start listening now!
