Wisdom of Stability

$25.99

Paperback

"In whatever place you live, do not easily leave it." -Abba Anthony


In an age where we might email a friend in Africa, skype a co-worker in Brazil, and

teleconference with people in different time zones-all in one day-the sheer speed of life can be dizzying. Like children stumbling off a merry-go-round, says Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, we are grasping for something to anchor our lives in a sea of constant change.

 

InThe Wisdom of Stability, Wilson-Hartgrove illuminates the biblical and monastic understanding of why staying in one place is both a virtue, and good for you. "For the Christian tradition," he writes, "the heart's true home is a life rooted in the love of God." When we cultivate an inner stability of heart - by rooting ourselves in the places where we live, engaging the people we are with, and by the simple rhythms of tending to body and soul - true growth can happen.The Wisdom of Stabilityis a must-read for pastors, leaders, and anyone seeking an authentic path of Christian transformation.
