9780687465408: Living the Good Life Together - Attentiveness Study & Reflection Guide: Being Present

Are you too busy for God?

It sounds sacrilegious, but that’s how many of us feel. In this study, authors Susan Pendleton Jones and L. Gregory Jones help us examine our busy lives and learn how to be present with ourselves, with each other, and with God. Topics include:

  • Listening to the Right Voices
  • Keeping Time
  • Self-Awareness
  • Listening Alone, Listening Together

As part of the study, you will read from this study & reflection guide, considering the ideas presented and recording your thoughts and responses. Then, in weekly group meetings, you will share your thoughts and hear the insights of others. Each meeting will include a video exploring the topic of attentiveness through interviews, mini-documentaries, personal testimonies, dramatic readings, and Scripture.
