How to Incorporate Spiritual Formation at Home

We’re all returning to “regular” life at different paces, but I imagine that, by now, most of us are feeling our pre-pandemic busyness creep back in. As you navigate that, I want to invite you to do a couple of things.

  • Don’t feel obligated to pick back up everything you put down in March 2020. Do as many of the things that are lifegiving to you as you want. Do as few of the things that are draining to you as you can get away with doing! Yes, I know that’s easier said than done.
  • Make space. I’ve read several articles and studies lately reminding me how addicted we, as Americans, are to doing as much as we can in as little time as possible. Resist that urge, if you can, at least now and then. Look for spaces in your life to do things that refresh you and draw you into awareness of God’s presence, whether that’s sitting on your porch by yourself with a cup of coffee, journaling, reading, art, walking or running, listening to music or podcasts, or calling a friend to catch up.
