It seems like life moves really fast sometimes doesn’t it? At Praxis we want to be aware of how busy everyone gets. We think part of what a relationship with God is supposed to offer us is rest. Rest is pretty important to God and sometimes we get so busy doing stuff (even stuff for God or church) that we forget to rest.
We want to make sure we don’t forget to rest and that we have to time worship God by investing in relationships that matter. In order to help us all slow down and get some rest, and to give us a little more time each month to spend with God or others, we have 4th Week.
All that means is that we don’t gather on the 4th Sunday of each month … it gives those who serve on Sundays a break and it allows everyone to take a breath and connect with people we sometimes don’t get to see as much and spend a little more focused time with God. Every once in a while there is a month has 5 Sundays and we do meet on the 5th one (keep an eye on the calendar).
