Rethinking Quiet Time

Episode 105 centers on a discussion of re-thinking the devotional practice of Quiet Time. While supporting the essence of what Quiet Time seeks to do (spend time with God in Bible intake, prayer and reflection/meditation), it challenges a legalistic and rigid approach to conducting a Quiet Time. This post developed from my thinking about an article by John Grayston, formerly of Scripture Union in the United Kingdom and his thoughts about biblical illiteracy and the future of quiet time.
