Part of the Rhythm series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We all want to live the good life, full of meaning, purpose, beauty, love and joy. But when we live in the fast lane do we really get to experience any of that?
This week John shows, via the life of Jesus, how to forge regular rhythms of slowing down, disconnecting from, and quieting all the distractions, so we can truly experience a preferred kind of life.

(KJV)
46And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. 47And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. 48And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. (KJV)
