In a post on the CRC Network, Neil de Koning shares some ideas about staying grounded in God in the midst of a crazy and distracting world. Though the post is addressed to elders in the church, everyone can use his five suggestions:
- The practice of an active engagement with Scripture (daily devotional or study) – because we live by the word of God.
- The practice of a biweekly celebration of communion in a small group because belonging to each other and being in Christ together are essential.
- The practice of active service (as volunteer and/or monetary) in two Christian organizations (church being one, possibly Christian school, ARocha, College, CLAC, etc) because the institutional life of a community is important part of Kingdom life.
- The practice of hospitality with non Christians because we are to love our neighbours.
