The Sacred Slow: A Book Review

The Sacred Slow by Alicia Britt Chole

There's an interesting shift happening in our culture. Being on the old side of the millennial generation, I haven't lived long enough to be a first hand witness of such a shift before. I've read about them in the history books, and it's quite fascinating to be able to see it occurring in front of my eyes. Things were focused on fast - fast food, quick fixes - and now slow is starting to take its place. The author has thirty plus years as a spiritual mentor. This book is formatted into fifty-two experiences (perhaps done on a weekly basis?) and is an invitation to unhurried honest before God, with the reminder that God doesn't just want to use His people, He's always wanted to love them.

I liked this book a lot. I feel the pull back to "slow" more heavily day by day. It's more than a pull to return to a simple lifestyle. It's truly stepping back on the quick nature of relationships, always moving and busy, fast religion.
