July is Abiding Month at Sheridan. Jesus tells us in John 15 that abiding in him is the best way to bear fruit. This means the scheduling of meetings and programs is minimal so staff and volunteers can take time to abide in Christ for rest and renewal. As we strive to be disciples of Jesus we want to follow his example of regular times of rest and spending time abiding in God’s presence, focusing on Him, and learning to practice the rhythm of nature. Abiding gives us concentrated time to receive power and strength from the Father, renewing our call in this world. Worship, both corporate and individual, is a priority during this time as is time in prayer and in God’s Word. We encourage everyone to be intentional in renewing their soul and spirit during July. When we start again from this place of rest, we can return with renewed creativity and energy for God’s work at Sheridan and in the community.
