Stillness

Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you,

“Take these things out of here!
         Stop making my Father’s house a marketplace!” 
 —John 2.16

In fact, stop everything.

Get rid of all the Stuff, 

even religion itself.

Shut down the hubbub.

Enter into the stillness

at the heart of everything,

the Sabbath that is the real temple,

the silence that is God. 

Don't run in the sanctuary,

you can't hear the silence when you're busy.


There's no substitute for stillness.

The offering God desires is your presence. 

Stop 

         and wait upon the Beloved.


Breathe. This is the holy of holies.


Destroy the temple of doing

and let the temple of being 

rise up from within. 

Deep Blessings,

Pastor Steve
