Is it possible that the younger generation's entire view of freedom has been so corrupted by our culture that they keep running from what liberates them the most? Break away from the constant commotion of your life and of society for a daily dose of hearing and responding to the voice of God.
In "Escape the Noise," youth pastor Acton Bowen shares a thirty-day program of spiritual development for teens and young adults and offers practical advice for incorporating religious beliefs into our daily lives. The day-by-day format is easy to use and follow, beginning with a brief essay using true stories and realistic examples to illustrate the theme. Bowen then introduces a four-step challenge:
Read It-a scripture passage that reinforces the day's message.
Think It-a guided thinking exercise that challenges you to be still and let the devotional passage "sink in."
Do It-an action step that encourages you to put God's word into practice.
Pray It-a sample prayer that is offered to "jump-start" your conversation time with God.
"Escape the Noise "offers direction for Christian believers who want to strengthen their spiritual development and make more time in their day for prayer and reflection.
