Outreach

Habits form us more than we form them.

The modern world is a machine of a thousand invisible habits, forming us into anxious, busy, and depressed people. We yearn for the freedom and peace of the gospel, but remain addicted to our technology, shackled by our screens, and exhausted by our routines. But because our habits are the water we swim in, they are almost invisible to us. What can we do about it?

The Common Rule

These habits are “common” not only because they are ordinary, but also because they can be practiced in community. They have been lived out by people across all walks of life—businesspeople, professionals, parents, students, retirees—who have discovered new hope and purpose. As you embark on these life-giving practices, you will find the freedom and rest for your soul that comes from aligning belief in Jesus with the practices of Jesus.

Basic Read

This book was used for a reading group at my church. It was interesting to watch 12 different adults all come to the same basic conclusion about this book.
First, there was a genuine concern for the author and a sincere hope for a positive resolution to his mental health challenges. Second, the book was viewed as a helpful recovery book for someone who might struggle with anxiety or for an individual with poor internal controls. The concepts for organizing one’s thoughts and daily routines was thought to be helpful for a certain type of person.
Finally, as with any book one can usually find something of value.
Overall, our reading group did not believe this was this book offered enough.
