How do we fight?
For millennia, apprentices of Jesus have spoken of the “three enemies of the soul” - the world, the flesh, and the devil. But all three have dropped out of the conversation in the modern, western church. So often we struggle to experience the life God had for us and our world, there’s a sense of opposition and pushback and even violence, from within and without. This ancient paradigm has the potential to unlock a new sense of victory and freedom and growth in our life.
Before you begin the practices with your community, listen through these teachings to understand why Silence & Solitude is important and discover what they can do in your life.
Follow along with each part of this practice. We recommend you work through it with your community, a small group triad, a weekly meal with friends or neighbors, your roommates, whatever works. Get a group of people, set a time each week to share a meal, then talk and pray for about an hour. Transformation happens in community.

Follow along with the recommended reading. We want to continually expand our minds and understanding of the way of Jesus. God wants us to love him not only with our hearts, souls, and strength, but with our minds as well.
