“In whatever place you live, do not easily leave it.” –Abba AnthonyIn an age where we might email a friend in Africa, skype a co-worker in Brazil, andteleconference with people in different time zones–all in one day–the sheer speed of life canMore“In whatever place you live, do not easily leave it.” –Abba AnthonyIn an age where we might email a friend in Africa, skype a co-worker in Brazil, andteleconference with people in different time zones–all in one day–the sheer speed of life can be dizzying. Like children stumbling off a merry-go-round, says Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, we are grasping for something to anchor our lives in a sea of constant change.InThe Wisdom of Stability, Wilson-Hartgrove illuminates the biblical and monastic understanding of why staying in one place is both a virtue, and good for you. “For the Christian tradition,” he writes, “the heart’s true home is a life rooted in the love of God.” When we cultivate an inner stability of heart – by rooting ourselves in the places where we live, engaging the people we are with, and by the simple rhythms of tending to body and soul – true growth can happen.The Wisdom of Stabilityis a must-read for pastors, leaders, and anyone seeking an authentic path of Christian transformation.
