QUESTIONS

In your chair time, your time of conversation with God each day, where is your focus? Are you asking for needs to be met … asking for the needs of others be met … or asking for a deeper relationship with Christ or a stronger faith?

NOTE

The sermons for the past several months have focused on how life changes when we organize life to have what Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Community Church calls “chair time.” It’s his goal for every one of the thousands of people that attend public worship at Willow Creek to also attend what John Wesley called private worship in their own personal time of devotion.  Here’s a video where Bill Hybels explains the importance of chair time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTCUNtxtP-I
