How do we keep our lives centred on Jesus? It’s a question we return to again and again because of how easy it is to drift away and get distracted, to fill our time with other things, to think that what we’re doing for God is more important than our relationship with God. And yet if Scripture teaches us anything it is that God desires us – our hearts – a relationship with us, more than anything else. And we need help in finding rhythms in our lives that return us to God, and to our shared relationship. Just as we bring our creativity to our youth work, looking for new ways to engage with young people, we need to draw on that same creativity for the sake of our own spiritual health. Spiritual practices have been used for centuries by followers of Jesus, as meaningful habits that keep us coming back to God. Maybe you have some that work for you. Or maybe things have got a bit stale. We invited four writers to find a fresh, innovative take on some of these ancient practices that Jesus modelled in his time on earth.
