Episode notes

The True God who inhabits sacred space is a father to the fatherless, a defender of widows.

Psalm 68:5 Voice

Our “quiet time” shouldn’t just stop at our morning quiet time we spend with God.

If we truly find peace with God in the morning, we can go through the chaos of the day and still be at peace. This is what it means to find a sacred space. The time we spend in the morning should set up the day to be at peace no matter what happens, but we can only accomplish this when we find or create a sacred space in the morning. 

Join Russ and friends as they discuss the section of the “How to Have a Quiet Time: A Comprehensive Guide” about finding and creating sacred space in our times with God.
